Powers and Abilities: In addition to his advanced strength and intelligence, Grodd also possessed vast "Force of Mind" powers, some of which included telepathy, mind control, psychic blasts, consciousness transference, matter manipulation, and telekinesis.
History: At some point during the 19th century, the radiation of a space meteor transformed a tribe of normal gorillas into a super-intelligent society, complete with a hidden Gorilla City of their own making. Amongst the otherwise peaceful super-simians, a rogue scientist and revolutionary named Grodd arose, using his superior mental powers against both his fellow gorillas and humankind.
