As Solomon Grundy is an individual and the Blood Worms are a species, I think that the Blood Worms would ultimately take Solomon Grundy down. He has had little interaction with J'Onn. Now, in the New 52, he seems to exist only on Earth 2.

Still not getting the polls, despite disabling my ad blocker. Also, I am not sure how well supernatural threats work with J'Onn, whose back ground is more science fiction than fantasy.

Sorry. I don't know what to do except try another polling site.

I picture the Bloodworms burning the flesh off Solomon Grundy and his regenerating from the bones to brutalize the B'ool Sporath in a perpetual stalemate.
