- As a dangerous, shambling monster made of trees and with the word “Man” in its name, Mangrove most resembles the Marvel anti-hero Man-Thing, but also greatly resembles DC's Swamp Thing.
Questions Answered on The Letters Page
- From Letters Page Nightmist
- Man-grove is a nemesis, how did they meet as why would she need to go to a swamp? Swamps are great places to go if you're a sorceress. Lots of places of power there (like it's a top spot to go - others include old libraries, abandoned cathedrals). That's why Man-grove even exists in the first place - he was a grove of trees, then a bunch of bodies and toxic waste were dumped there (because Rook City), and then some Gloomweaver cult activity happened there and all of this combined to create Man-grove.
- From Letters Page Interlude 7 - Nemeses
- We first see Man-Grove in Nightmist's deck in a swamp which makes sense, later we see him in Fright Train's deck in a sewer - how did he get there? Man-Grove originated as a grove of trees in a swamp near Rook City where a bunch of chemicals were dumped by Pike Industrial and where a bunch of Gloomweaver cult activity took place (because swamp magic). Between all of this, the trees animated into a man-like entity. It eventually wanders into Rook City's sewers. It started out pretty mindless, but developed some sentience over time.
- We know some of what happens to Man-Grove in the Tactics Timeline, but what about the RPG timeline? In RPG, it's still around, but has a different direction taken. In both timelines it interacted with young Vanessa Long, which coaxes it out of just being a swamp monster - in the RPG timeline it doesn't find what it wants with either people or trees. It's still a villainous character and very protective of plants, but kind of is a wandering entity.
- Who would win in a fight, Man-Grove or Plague Rat? They've encountered each other in the sewers, but neither has anything the other wants and so they've never had any reason to fight. If they *did* fight, Christopher thinks that Plague Rat has more direct offensive ability, but Adam counters that there's plenty of thorny/constrictive things that Man-Grove could do to kill Plague Rat in a battle of attrition while it would be difficult for Plague Rat to actually do enough damage to it to "kill" Man-Grove. Christopher concedes the point.

After Baron Blade organized the Vengeful Five to take on the Freedom Five and their allies, the living vegetation known as Man-Grove was thought to have retreated to the far-off land from whence it had originated. In truth, it stayed much closer.
This information is from the Miststorm Universe, one of two branching timelines. Products in this timeline are: Sentinel Tactics (and expansions). Prime War (and expansions)
Delayed: Part of the indefinitely delayed Battle for Broken City Core Set for Sentinel Tactics.
Wounded from battle, it drug itself to a swamp where it hid in pain and fear. Coincidentally, this swamp happened to be not far from the home of young Vanessa Long. She felt the psychic anguish of the creature, and made her way to the swamp. There, she was shocked at the sight of Man-Grove, but still managed to comfort the mind of the semi-sapient flora.
Over time, Vanessa was able to aid the being to become more than just what others saw it as - some monstrous creature. When it came time for Man-Grove to move on, Vanessa gave it a gift. Man-Grove still treasures the stuffed ape as its sole possession.
Exemplar has a bit of a problem. A creature has taken up residence in the Pike Industrial Complex ruins, which serves as the entrance to his subterranean headquarters. Fortunately, For Profit are willing to do a bit of brush clearing.
