Brother Nature is an ecoterrorist in the Marvel Comics universe.
The character, created by Mark Gruenwald and Tom Morgan, first appeared in Captain America #336 in December 1987.
Within the context of the stories, Mark Diering was a nature enthusiast who decided to become a park ranger in Washington state. He eventually became an ecoterrorist to combat private land developers, who thought they had killed him and buried him in the Earth. He had a vision of the goddess of the Earth, who granted him superhuman powers and made him nature's guardian. Captain America tried to convince him to stop endangering workers' lives, but Brother Nature lashed out and use nature to attack Captain America. Caught in the earthquake he was attacking Captain America with, Captain America rescued him, but Brother Nature broke into tears upon seeing that he had ruined his forest.
Brother Nature later fought the Thunderbolts, resisting the Superhuman Registration Act. When the Radioactive Man's suit was damaged, the Thunderbolts tricked Brother Nature into surrendering rather than exposing the forest to radiation.
