Alec Holland created a bio-restorative formula that he thought would feed the world. Agents from a Mr. E (Nathan Ellery) sabotage the project, kiling his wife Linda in the process. Alec himself is immolated, where he dives into the swamp and dies. There, his remains were used to form the template of the new version of the plant elemental Swamp Thing.
Attempts to self-medicate with the bio-restorative formula briefly brought Holland back in the place of Swamp Thing, but failure to self-medicate reversed the process.
Holland was really in Hell until Swamp Thing gave his body a proper burial, where he was able to join Linda in Paradise.
Later, when Swamp Thing went wild against humanity, Alec's corpse was resurrected to stop him.
