Solomon Grundy Boss is a unique card that deals exponentially more damage as his health depletes. He is able to inflict up to 10x damage with basic attacks at very low health.
He has a few very noticeable drawbacks: as a Solomon Grundy character, his attack speed, particularly that of his heavy attack (which also has a painfully long recovery time), is notoriously slow and his heavy combos are extremely easily interrupted by specials and basic attacks alike. Also, he has the lowest base damage stat among all gold cards, meaning his 10x damage is much less impressive than it sounds, especially since additional sources of bonus damage (such as basic/crit gear) scale according to his base damage, and he can get knocked out very easily trying to do any serious damage with his passive. For these reasons, he is almost non-existent in multiplayer.
If you do want to use him however, his specific gear is a good fit for him, adding more damage to his basic attacks, giving him unblockable chance on basic attacks, excellent for such a basic-reliant character, and a self-heal on special 1, allowing him to have one foot in the grave significantly longer. Gauntlets of Azrael is also good for him, as its gives a high chance to heal the amount of damage dealt in a combo ender, which increases as his health decreases, acting as a counterbalance to his passive, while giving a large max health increase. With enough basic damage/crit gear, a combo ender at 10x damage could heal more than a heal on s1. Block gear can be useful to prevent him from going down when he is already at low health.
Another good gear strategy to use with Grundy is the full Fourth World Set, as it both increases his already-overwhelming Health stats and gives a good heal on SP1, allowing him to take beatings to lower his health and gain immense damage boost for his basic attacks, then use his SP1 to regain back health and restart the process over and over again.
Please note that battles are highly situational: this section only mentions cards that have mechanics that, for any reason, are particularly effective with/against, or particularly ineffective against Solomon Grundy. Having a card that "counters" Solomon Grundy does not mean it is always a good choice.
- Green Lantern/John Stewart: If Grundy reaches low enough health without getting KO'ed, he will have the maximum boost to his basic attacks and John's Emergency Barrier will activate on Grundy. This could give him an ample opportunity to use maximize his passive's use.
