Background: While touring near Freedom City, nerdcore rapper, Tribe One, was kidnapped by the Green Man. The eco terrorist decided to try a new way to spread his message and thought Tribe One would be the perfect "prophet." He infused the rapper with the essence of a nature spirit that had ben trapped beneath the Fens. The infusion transformed Tribe One into the plant creature that would later be known as the Dirty South Swamp Thing (or "DS" to the superhero community). DS fought back against the Green Man and escaped, thanks to the assistance of his friends WarRock and Manphibian.

It took some practice but DS eventually figured out how to transform back into his human form. Being empowered by a spirit, he's also begun studying the occult.
