Arkham City Bio
Over a century ago, murderer Cyrus Gold sought to escape justice by hiding in Slaughter Swamp, where he met a fate worse than death. Mysterious forces doomed the now immortal Grundy to an endless cycle of death and rebirth.
Robbed of his memories, he adopted the name of a nursery rhyme: "Solomon Grundy, Born on a Monday, Christened on Tuesday, Married on Wednesday, Took ill on Thursday, Grew worse on Friday, Died on Saturday, Buried on Sunday. This is the end of Solomon Grundy"

Additional Information
You decide!

Possible role in Arkham 3
Considering he's supposed to be immortal, he could quite possibly fill the same role he did in Arkham City, a "henchman" type character for one of the leading villain's gang. Leading Batman to a re-match with him, but in a different scenario, and having to use a different tactic to beat him. If he does return, it would be a nice nod to the comics if Rocksteady gave him a little showdown with Croc, and it would make for an interesting mission for Batman. Maybe having to pass through the area while those two are busy, without being seen. Thanks to Harvey's Bade-Side and Fozzie026.

Essential reading
Long Halloween, Faces of Evil: Solomon Grundy, Justice League of America: Tornado's Path

Chances of appearing in Arkham3
5/10

I enjoyed the Grundy boss battle in Arkham City quite a lot. It was a nice change of theme for me. Hopefully he will be back in A3, but unfortunately I don't think he will be.
So for me, Chances of Appearing in Arkham 3: 1/10
Possible Role: If he does return, it would be a nice nod to the comics if Rocksteady gave him a little showdown with Croc, and it would make for an interesting mission for Batman. Maybe having to pass through the area while those two are busy, without being seen.
Nobody cared who I was until I put on the mask.

I also enjoyed Gundy's boss battle, but I think that's all we'll be seeing from him. I doubt he'll be in the third game. But if he was, he'd most probably be used for another boss battle.
Chances of appearing: 3/10.

Chanes of appearing in arkham 3: 3/10

Possible role: I'm not sure whether he survived his last encounter with batman, but he's immortal right? If he's back then it will probely be in a side mission or work for a crimelord, he's a big, dumb zombie who can be easily taken advan tage of, so we'll probely see his strength being used by the penguin, two-face or black mask.

He's kinda dead. I mean, he IS a zombie, but Batman kinda crushed his heart or something.

Seriously, what else can you do with him now? There could be a riddle or a reference with slaughter swamp, but that's about it.

Agreed with ACD. If he came back smart this time around, it wouldn't feel right after that performance in AC.

Oh, I agree, but people were asking what else could be done with him. I was simply providing left-field approach that most members probably aren't familiar with.
