Synopsis for "Another Green World"
Elsewhere, The Floronic Man, formerly Jason Woodrue, commanding the power of all plants, goes on a rampage of murder and destruction throughout Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. Abby Cable drives alone, and discovers the bodies of some of Woodrue's victims, and in her fragile state, cries out for Alec, before being set upon by some of Woodrue's vines.
Woodrue uses plants to increase the oxygen levels within peoples' homes to the point that it causes an explosion when someone lights a cigarette, and destroys everything in the town. He has a local boy film everything, and then deliver the tape to the authorities. As a result, the authorities call the Justice League of America.
Through The Green, Swamp Thing hears Abby call to him, and begins to piece together recent events, coming to grips with the fact that he is not Alec Holland, and slowly beginning to perceiving Woodrue's negative presence within The Green.
As Woodrue's vines nearly strangle Abby to death, Swamp Thing finally wakes, and uproots himself, saving her. Then he goes to confront Woodrue himself.
