Solomon Grundy made his first public appearance in Gotham during Batman's second year as a vigilante, during the "War of Jokes and Riddles" between the Joker and the Riddler. The two criminals went to war over the right to kill Batman and recruited every villain in Gotham they could to join their fight. Grundy was brought on to fight for the Joker. The war waged on for weeks before Batman was forced to side with the Riddler to end the needless casualties. Grundy was apprehended and brought to Arkham Asylum.
