Solomon grundy



Decades ago in the 1920s, Cyrus Gold was an infamous gangster operating in Gotham City. After a successful bullion robbery, Gold was betrayed and gunned down by his co-conspirators. They cursed his body with a powerful gris-gris and dumped the body in a swamp with its own mystical properties. Over time, the magic mixed, and Cyrus, who was resurrected as a soulless zombie, rose from the swamp. The only things he retained from his past life were his instinctive lust for wealth, which he continued to hoard even though he had no longer any use for it, and a faint memory that he was "born on Monday". For the latter reason, Cyrus was named Solomon Grundy after the nursery rhyme of the same name.Grundy mostly appeared as an opponent of law enforcement and the Justice League. His enormous strength and resillience made him a match for many superpowered individuals, including Superman and J'onn J'onzz. However, when Icthultu invaded Earth, Grundy fought along the side of Aquaman, Dr. Fate, Inza and members of the Justice League. He succeeded, but was ultimately killed in his search for his lost soul. Grundy's grave was indirectly disturbed when three youths attempted to conjure a demon for power. The spell was disrupted, and chaos magic was released that took possession of Grundy, effectively re-animating him. However, little of Grundy's original personality was left; instead, it was filled with innate rage and rampaged. It was opposed by Vixen, John Stewart, Superman, Aquaman, Dr. Fate, AMAZO and Shayera Hol. However, given the nature of the chaos magic, Grundy neutralized Dr. Fate and AMAZO's powers. The only way to stop it was Shayera Hol's energy mace. The mace itself was constructed with Nth metal, the properties of which repelled magic. Ultimately, Shayera Hol put Grundy to rest for the last time.
