|Solomon Grundy (JLU)|
|Real Name:||Solomon Grundy|
|Place of Origin:||Earth|
|First Appearance||Injustice for All|
|Character Type:||villain, anti-hero|
Solomon Grundy is an undead creature that was a member of the Injustice Gang. While he is slow to wit, he is incredibly strong and has a high tolerance for pain. He accepts "jobs" that will yield him gold or treasure, but not for power or gain, necessarily. His desire for wealth is pure instinct, revealed to be tied to his origin.
Secret Origin RevealedEdit
He later strikes a deal with Dr. Fate for gold. Dr. Fate discovered that Grundy had actually been Cyrus Gold, a Gotham City gangster back in the 1920's. After a heist, he'd been doublecrossed, killed and dumped in a swamp. His killers cursed his body with a powerful gris-gris prior to dumping him. The swamp's own magical properties reacted with the magics and resurrected him as a large soul-less zombie, intent on collecting wealth, but never knowing why.
Some time later, Grundy is resurrected, on accident, by some children dabbling with the occult. This results in him being consumed with "chaos magic". Now completely mindless, it takes the combined might of Superman, Vixen, Aquaman, Dr. Fate, Amazo and Green Lantern to try and stop him. His chaos magic, however, cancels out Dr. Fate and Amazo's power, and the rest are forced to use brute-strength attacks. However, ultimately, it is his friend Hawkgirl, now known only as Shayera Hol, who grants him peace in death with the use of her Nth Metal mace, which weakened the 'chaos magic'.
Many years later, he resurfaces as the leader of the Metropolis Mafia, now with a completely new personality and a heightened intelligence.
