Celebrating fifty years of strange and thought-provoking storytelling! The macabre Man-Thing rises from his swamp and returns to center stage! Overnight, vegetative pillars arise across the world. Atop them sit ominous bulbs, growing ever more repulsive. As the sun beats down, the bulbs swell, threatening to burst - and all who come into contact with them will burn! The signature curse of the Man-Thing has gone global! NEW VILLAIN HARROWER is trying to scorch humanity from the face of the planet - and when she discovers the Nexus of All Realities, her twisted mission becomes all the more apocalyptic!
Unless Earth's greatest heroes can somehow rejuvenate the Man-Thing and help him reclaim his power, the whole world will be made to know fear - and to burn at its touch!
