Man-Thing is a Marvel character that is very similar to the DC character Swamp thing.  One difference with the character is that his touch is acidic while Swampthing's touch is not.

The two characters appeared at around the same time and the two writers involved with the characters were also roommates at the time.  Gerry Conway writer of (Man-Thing) lived with Len Wein (Swampthing) writer, Len refused to alter the origin of Swampthing to make him more different. Marvel may have considered Legal action against DC but in the end nothing official occurred.

Man-Thing is generally considered to be good.  He has effectively lost his conscious human mind and only retains bits of his old self.  The lack of full understanding make him dangerous to everyone around him.  He basically reacts to others emotions.  If others emotions are violent he will in turn react violently, if others emotions or benevolent then he in turn will act benevolent.

Biography:
Ted Sallis is working on Project Gladiator in the Everglades.  Project Gladiator is an experiment involving the Superhuman Serum that transformed Captain America.  Learning that AIM is operating in the area, Sallis breaks into his lab with his lover Ellen Brandt.  He begins to destroy his already memorized notes.  Unfortunately, Brandt betrayed Sallis and agents appear.  Sallis escapes with his serum that he injects himself with right before crashing his car into the swamp.
His body merges with murky water around him and he emerges as the dim red eyed monster Man-Thing with only faint memories of Ted Sallis.  He then attacks Ellen Brandt scaring her face, then shambles off into a new existence living in the Swamp.
