Watching Young Justice this morning when this DC Nation short came on. Love it!

Cyrus Gold was a wealthy merchant who was murdered&had his body disposed in a swamp. He was supernaturally reanimated fifty years later, turning into a zombie. While it was possible to “kill” Solomon Grundy, he always returned. The weird elemental energy that imbued his form with pseudo-life made him virtually indestructible; he’s impervious to bullets, fire, and extreme cold, and can survive indefinitely without food, water, or oxygen. Grundy’s personality differed from incarnation to incarnation, but he seemed to retain some memories of his experiences. Occasionally, his strength was on par with Superman’s but at times, even the Man of Steel couldn’t (physically) take Grundy down.
