Solomon Grundy is THE original big, strong, tireless, deadly villian in the comic world and one of my fave comic villians.
A zombie-like swamp creature, Solomon Grundy is a mindless brute hell-bent on killing Green Lantern in this 1946 Justice Society Of America issue that was reprinted in Super Team Family from 1976. Grundy battles the entire Justice Society to get to Green Lantern.
