History

Earth-One

In the parallel universe, known as Earth-One, Jason Woodrue is an exile from an interdimensional world known as Floria inhabited by Dryads. Not long after his arrival on Earth, he begins calling himself the Plant Master. Woodrue begins uses his advanced botanical knowledge to control plant growth in an attempt to take over the world. He is defeated by the superheroic Atom.

A little more than a decade later, in 1976 Woodrue uses an experimental formula to transform his body into a plant/human hybrid, with his skin resembling bark and his hair turning into leaves. He now starts calling himself the Floronic Man. He is soon defeated by Green Lantern.[2]

By the following year, the Floronic Man becomes a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains.[3]
