Alice Cable visits the facility where Alec Holland and his sister, Linda, are working with a formula that encourages plant growth. Anton Arcane's men attack the lab and set Alec on fire. He leaps into the Swamp to put the fire out and rescues Alice.
Eventually, Arcane's slice off one of Alec's arms and capture him. Arcane toasts to his servant Bruno and has him drink the formula he captured in his wine, turning him into a small, piglike man.
Arcane insists that Holland explain to him the secret of the formula. Holland says it makes you more of what you already are. Arcane then drinks wine laced with the formula as Bruno helps Alec and Alice escape through a tunnel that leads back to the swamp, where Arcane follows, now a sword-wielding, armored, anthropoid wolf.
Not only is this issue not in continuity, but Swamp Thing has voiced his disdain for the movie at least twice, once in issue #117, and on one prior occasion.
