A hulking form lurches from the shadows of the stagnant swamp. It's menacing eyes grip you in their icy glare. A murderous claw grips your throat, crushing the breath from your body. As you breathe your last, a ghostly voice sings an old rhyme "Solomon Grundy, Died on Saturday..."
According to Wikipedia:
m
"In the late 19th century, a wealthy merchant named Cyrus Gold is murdered and his body disposed of in Slaughter Swamp, near Gotham City. Fifty years later, the corpse is reanimated as a huge shambling figure (composed partly of the swamp matter that has accumulated around the body over the decades) with almost no memory of its past life"

All-American Comics #61 (1944)
Solomon Grundy"s 1st Appearance
mm

"He shows up in a hobo camp and, when asked about his name, one of the few things he can recall is that he was "born on a Monday". One of the men at the camp mentions the nursery rhyme character Solomon Grundy (who was born on a Monday), and Gold adopts the moniker."
m
"Solomon Grundy has superhuman strength and endurance...He is virtually indestructible thanks to the elemental energy that imbues his form with pseudo-life. He is nearly invulnerable to physical, magical, and energy attacks and he is not affected by fire or cold...He does not need to eat, sleep, or breathe, although oddly he was once choked to death by Green Arrow"
