“Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday…”
The undead monster known as Solomon Grundy is powerful, immortal and bad news for every hero unfortunate enough to cross his path. Grundy was a corrupt man named Cyrus Gold until his untimely death in Slaughter Swamp. Since then, his entire existence has been an unending cycle of death and rebirth. When Grundy dies, he eventually rises again, emerging from the depths of his original resting place in the swamp to wreak havoc on the living.
However, there’s a twist to this otherwise dependable cycle. When he’s reborn, his personality often changes. Sometimes he returns a mindless monster, destroying everything in his path. Other times, he’s reborn with a high level of intelligence, granting him a deadly combination of brains and brawn. But no matter the changes in his personality, he always has the same superhuman strength, stamina and near indestructibility, and his desires remain evil and corrupt. He is a monster—an invulnerable one that will keep coming back again…and again…
