The Parliament of Trees has been destroyed, and now Alec Holland must be the protector of the Green as well as its avatar. On top of that, three former avatars have now been given human bodies for the first time in centuries -- an they too are under Alec's care. It's almost too much for Swamp Thing to handle. Fortunately, at just the right moment, the Sureen appear to him. An ancient order dedicated to serving avatars, the Sureen wish to devote their lives to helping Swamp Thing in any way they can.
