Solomon Grundy is a big figure like The Hulk. He has light, bluish-grey skin and wears a tattered dark grey suit. Solomon also has tousled hair the same colour as his skin and disfigured facial features.
Background[edit | edit source]
Cyrus Gold was a wealthy merchant living in the 19th century who was murdered and had his body thrown into the Slaughter Swamp outside of Gotham City. Near modern day, Gold rose from the swamp as a zombie who could not remember anything about his past life except that he was "born on a Monday". A hobo the zombie met made the connection to Solomon Grundy, a character in a song who was born on a Monday. The zombie took the name as his own.
Solomon Grundy is usually manipulated by other villains, such as Lex Luthor and Two-Face to do their bidding rather than come up with schemes of his own. His strength is enough to challenge Superman or Shazam!.
