Minnesota may be known for its lakes, but it's also home to Minneapolis, the fifth nerdiest city in America, according to real estate site Movoto. One of the big annual events is CONvergence in Bloomington, a suburb of Minneapolis. Back in 2005, CONvergence brought in Len Wein, the creator of Swamp Thing. Here, the swampy fella stands next to his creator. Swamp Thing should be right at home with all of those lakes around.
