Default "Born on a Monday..." The Solomon Grundy Thread

Let's get this started



Love how they're translating the character to the show.

Agreed. They're setting this whole show up wonderfully. I initially jumped on only to see Barry become the Flash, but now I think I'm going to watch all of Season 1 to get caught up then start following this regularly! I agree that this would make an awesome addition to the Man of Steel universe. They'd be crazy not to reconsider using it.

I love how they are setting up Grundy! When Diggle saw the poem in his room I geeked out

I am praying for an "Arrowman no hurt Grundy-Arrowman yes hurt Grundy" scene.

I really liked the sound FX during the final fight.It sounded like Grundy's punches were whizzing by as Ollie ducked them.

So what did Gold take to the face? Was it a massive dose of Mirakuru?

Yup. Hope that means he comes back even stronger. And hopefully with some brain damage, since he basically overdosed.

I'm kinda stunned that they did it but I BELIEVE in this character as much as I do any other character in the show... hell he's ten times more believabl than Laurel.

Love their take on Grundy, hoping and assuming he comes back recurring.

Who knows, he may even show up on the Flash show. Grundy's one of those characters that pops up every now and then facing different heroes.

I expected a scene where his brothers disposed of his body in a swamp.

They could still conceivably do that. Perhaps as a flashback in a future episode?

That should definitely happen. Have them dispose all of their failed experiments in some remote swamp. Then a Season later, Grundy returns!

As I posted in another thread it would be great that Brother Blood had his cop brother take Gold's body to Gotham and dump the body in the swamp. And have Blood say something like "let those nut jobs over at Arkham take the fall for this"

Looking at the injury he received, is anyone else concerned that - should he return - Grundy would have a Two-Face like appearance?

Aware it's possible? Yes. Concerned? Not really.
