    spoilers:
    Is Alec dead? I figured he might be considering JLD but he was around in Death Metal so I wasn't sure, but that whole just a memory thing seemed like he was pretty dead.
    end of spoilers
    I believe so yes. He sacrificed himself to help bring the Upside Down Man to a level where Zatanna was able to deal with him iirc.

    Today’s issue of Swmap Thing was great, some background on why Levi returned home. He was going to oversee the development of his old home area for Prescott, and also wanted to reconnect with family. Guess things won’t end happily. Was worried the Suicide Squad crossover would derail the story, but I thought it was great here, loved Perkins drawing Parasite.

    Another great issue. Liked the callback to the story Levi’s dad told him, showing how things changed and how he approaches being Swamp Thing.

    I don’t know Asa, what’s her history with Swamp Thing?

    She’s from the new 52 era Justice League Dark. I think she first appeared in the Forever Evil: Blight storyline and worked with Alec. Actually in that storyline I think she created a clone of swamp thing until Alec destroyed it, so she may actually have a small but decent chunk of history with the Green.

    Also I like learning more about Levi’s backstory, almost makes it feel like being Swamp Thing is repentance or punishment for his actions in his life involving India and his family

    I don't really understand this idea that Green needs you to have some painful memories to connect to? Was this always the case?

    Well the Swamp Thing born of Alan Holland was created from his death, and there doesn’t seem to have been any Swamp Things who led perfectly happy lives and then became ST. I suspect that’s Ram V pointing out an unspoken trope and making it canon that the Green prefers to craft its agents from humans who have suffered because of the Green in some way.

    Previously, all avatars of the green were born out of the death of the "host", and it always involved fire.
