My first ever issue of Swamp Thing was this one:
You read that right! Crystal Man's Midas touch did THIS to one of the most mysterious, potentially powerful entities in DC's stable:
At a guess, I'd say that if he is from another realm (say he's an Archangel as per one of his possible Secret Origins), then his body on Earth might just be some vessel, created out of random material and animated by his spirit. Any number of supernatural origins could fit this theory. So really, he's dust rendered back into dust, and the Stranger's consciousness will merely have to find the proper materials again and rebuild its shell. That's how I see it, anyway. Because it really isn't the end for him here. He shows up at the end of the next issue, narrating the final page.
And the Crystal Man's final fate?
