  1. Cool "clip"... we agree with "Toyman"... "WE want more Toys"....
    The last we saw of Solomon Grundy Swamp-Thing made him "non-violent" to live in the swamps... and told Batman that Grundy was at peace...
    ... So is he back up to his old criminal ways...???

    1. Thanks! I havent read a new comic in a couple of decades but it looks like he has been bad pretty consistently since some time in the 80's when he had shortly became a hero. This is his most recent event : In The New 52, Grundy is once again a villain for Alan Scott. First appearing in Earth 2 #3, Grundy personifies "The Grey" life-destroying forces and opposes the "The Green" forces that choose Alan Scott as their champion. He attacks Washington DC to get Alan's attention. Flash, Hawkgirl, and Green Lantern fight him, but Atom brings him down temporarily by jumping onto him at giant size. The battle continues until Scott once again exiles Grundy to the moon where neither he nor the "Grey" can do any damage.

    1. He came out right at Christmas 2001, he was a gift to myself that year.

    2. Nice! He's detailed enough that I thought he might be more recent - I've always thought that the late '90s/early '00s DC direct figures were all a little plain, but I'm glad to see that it wasn't always true!

    3. Yeah he's not bad at all for his age. I think he might be a little better then the others from the same time because he was a deluxe figure and came in a huge box.

    1. Yeah he's meant to be the golden age version so he has a slightly friendly look to him.
