From the wiki:

Solomon Grundy has superhuman strength and endurance. His strength has varied greatly through the years, for instance, in the Long Halloween story arc, Batman beat Grundy, while at various points his strength is on par with Superman's. He is virtually indestructible thanks to the elemental energy that imbues his form with pseudo-life. He is nearly invulnerable to physical, magical and energy attacks and he is not affected by fire or cold. He has proven highly resistant to the effects of the
original Green Lantern's power ring (which is attributed to his part-plant essence; originally because he had absorbed plant matter from the swamp, and later because he was a partial "plant elemental" like Swamp Thing). He does not need to eat, sleep or breathe.

While he has occasionally been destroyed, he has always returned to life sooner or later, though often with different personalities and powers.
