Woodgod is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe.

Woodgod is a genetically-engineered sentient life-form. He physically resembles a satyr, and was created using cloning techniques by combining human and animal DNA.

[edit] Fictional character biography

Woodgod was created by two scientists, David and Ellen Pace, on their farm in New Mexico. They also had been working with nerve gas for the federal government. When people from the nearby town of Liberty, New Mexico discovered Woodgod, they then stormed the farm and shot him. One of the townspeople smashed a canister of the lethal nerve gas within the barn, killing the Paces and everyone in Liberty. When the army came to investigate what happened in Liberty, they found Woodgod (who was immune to the gas) and quarantined the empty town.

Later, the Hulk and Spider-Man turned up in Liberty, and the army tried to kill both them and Woodgod. Woodgod escaped and returned to the Pace farm, teaching himself how to read. He soon left and found a valley in the Colorado Rocky Mountains where he began genetic experiments using methods he had discovered in David Pace’s notebooks. He created a whole community of sentient half-humanoid half-animals of human intelligence whom he called the Changelings, and became their ruler.
