The Creature from the Black Bog is actually a peaceful explorer from another world. As he was flying through our solar system he experienced engine trouble and decided to set down on Earth to make repairs. After fixing the engine, he decided to explore the surroundings and became trapped in the black bog of the Florida Everglades. Slowly sinking, the Creature was unable to reach the vines overhead which would have allowed him to pull himself to safety.

Luckily, the Creature was spotted by an elderly couple named John and Martha who were enjoying their retirement and exploring the Everglades themselves. Though frightened by the giant Creature, John and Martha could not sit idly by and allow another living thing to perish. They got the vines that the Creature needed to escape his murky prison. After explaining how he came to be there, the Creature promised John and Martha a great reward and then took off in his ship. The Creature took John and Martha's memories of him and had sprinkled them in water from the Fountain of Youth, restoring the pair to a younger physical age so they could have their lives to enjoy all over again.[1]

The Creature from the Black Bog later resurfaced where it was among the monsters causing havoc on Earth.[2]
