#70 – BROTHER CYRUS / CYRUS GOLD (SOLOMON GRUNDY)

In the comics Cyrus Gold (Solomon Grundy), is a zombie  supervillain who has clashed with many heroes over the years, including Green Arrow, Superman, Batman and the JSA  . Solomon Grundy frequently dies and resurrects in new incarnations, each of varying levels of strength and intelligence. Solomon Grundy is a reanimated corpse stemming from a cursed place near Gotham City called Slaughter Swamp. He has had many appearances in which he had different levels of strength and intelligence, once surpassing even Superman in power level.

On Arrow Brother Cyrus – The criminal/cultist that was successfully injected with Brother Blood’s mystery serum is named Cyrus.  Most likely, this is a reference to Cyrus Gold, whose body was reincarnated as the monstrous Solomon Grundy after he was killed and dumped in a swamp.  We may see him come back in Season 3
