Gorilla Grodd is a supervillain appearing in DC Comics, primarily as an enemy of The Flash. He debuted in Flash v.1 #106 (April–May 1959), and was created by writer John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino.

Gorilla Grodd is a hyper-intelligent telepathic gorilla with the power to control the minds of others. At one time, he was nothing more than an average ape, but after an alien spacecraft (retconned from a radioactive meteor, the same one that empowered Hector Hammond) crashes in his African home, Grodd and his troupe are imbued with super intelligence by the ship's pilot. Grodd and fellow gorilla Solovar also develop telepathic and telekinetic powers. Taking the alien as their leader, the gorillas construct a super advanced home named Gorilla City.

Not long after this Grodd begins his machinations to take over, not only Gorilla City, but the world - and clashes with The Flash and other heroes numerous times.

When Solovar is captured by humans, Grodd tracks him to Central City (with sinister intentions, of course) where he runs afoul of The Flash.Since first appearing in The Flash #106 (May 1959), Grodd has assumed a dominate role in the DC Universe. He was once a leader in the short-lived Se” read more
