Bog Venus (New Earth)
Real Name

Parliament of Trees





First appearance



Bog Venus' true name is lost to the pages of history. She was a medicine woman who existed some 100,000 thousand years before the Great Flood, at a time before humanity began using tools. Bog Venus' trade employed the use of various plants and herbs for medicinal value. When a nearby volcano erupted, the medicine woman was trapped in an avalanche of volcanic mud. She rose from the dead as Earth's next plant elemental and became known as Bog Venus (a loose translation of the language of her people. Bog Venus became one of the early Erl-Kings and later, a member of the Parliament of Trees. Along with fellow Erl-Kings, Ghost Hiding in the Rushes, Saint Columba and Kettle Hole Devil, Bog Venus formed a special cabal within the Parliament known as the Committee. It was the function of the Committee to pave the way for the next Earth elemental. They selected a disembodied entity (which came to be known as the Sprout) and attempted to merge it with a human body, thereby ushering in a new age of human born elementals. The Swamp Thing took umbrage with this and spoiled the Committee's plans. As such, Bog Venus and the other Committee members were fused into a new elemental entity known as the Wild Thing. The Swamp Thing ultimately destroyed the Wild Thing, and Bog Venus' essence was cast into the void where it took root on another world capable of sustaining plant life. On this world, she became aware of the "plant circuitry" that formed the planet's roots. This circuitry served the planet as a living plant-machine. Bog Venus was one of several off-world elementals who had garnered the attention of the Dominators during their quest to subjugate the planet Earth. Since Bog Venus was off-planet at the time that the Parliament of Trees was destroyed by the Word, it is reasonable to assume that she may still be alive.

Powers and Abilities




Bog Venus was first introduced as part of the assemblage of the Parliament of Trees in Swamp Thing (Volume 2) #47. She was not addressed as a singular entity until Swamp Thing (Volume 2) #68.
