- Do you not know me, human? Often before we have fought and you defeated me. But today I have raised an army. An army of little brothers and they long to meet with you. Do you not know me? I am Grodd.

Gorilla Grodd was The Flash ‘s foe from Gorilla City, a city in the jungles of Africa populated by intelligent gorillas.
He possessed amazing intelligence and force of mind capabilities, powers allegedly granted him when he was exposed to a space-rock that landed in the african jungles ( though another report states that Gorilla City originated on the planet of Calor and was brought to Earth as a leave of Grodd ‘s machinations when he already had his powers ). [ citation needed ]
Grodd ‘s thinker took over the body of criminal William Dawson, who was in prison. When released, he traveled back to Gorilla City. Upon reaching his address, Dawson ‘s body devolved bet on into Grodd ‘s original gorilla imprint. There, he saw and fell in love with Solovar ‘s fiancee, Boka. Determined to have her, he designed a machine that caused his body to emanate neo-magnetic radiation. As a solution, everyone who saw him immediately liked him. He arrived at the wedding procession, and Boka immediately became infatuate with him. They were married, and Grodd was declared king of Gorilla City. not quenched, he had the gorillas build him a plane, which he flew to Central City, where the humans quickly began adoring him, including the Flash. He began running for governor as the Statewide Party candidate, planning on continuing on to president after that. however, the Flash foiled Grodd ‘s design when he discovered that the neo-magnetic radiation could be counteracted by solar flare radiation, which he duplicated by vibrating his body at super speed to match the frequency. Afterwards, Grodd was well apprehended. [ 2 ] Grodd had been trapped inside the human soundbox of an fleshy street bum. He was attacked by a gang known as the Vultures. One of them commented on how their member Iggo had the military capability of a gorilla, which reminded Grodd of his on-key kind. suddenly changing back to his master form and size, he quickly defeated the gang, making them believe that they are burning in mellow lava by using his violence of thinker power. Reading the minds of the crooks, he saw that one of the former members of their gang was a friend of the Flash, and a plan began to form in his judgment. Grodd found another space-rock, identical to the one that had given him his powers, and contacted Hector Hammond, a human who had besides gained like powers through another space-rock, hoping to use this meteorite as a super-weapon to rule the world. however, while Hammond and Grodd tried to wrestle this meteorite aside from the Green Lantern, who had joined the Flash in Africa, it exploded, accelerating Grodd ‘s evolution even more then. With these heightened powers, Grodd was able to gain operate of Gorilla City ‘s entire population. With the assistant of Rex the Wonder Dog, the two were able to defeat Grodd. The conflict left Grodd ‘s thinker like a child ‘s, and he and Hammond, who the meteorite had turned into a Cro-Magnon, were left in Gorilla City to be educated into utilitarian citizens. [ 3 ] A few years later, the demon Neron restored Grodd ‘s mind, which allowed him to resume his rule on Gorilla City. [ 4 ] however, Grodd was captured while stealing an artifact in the “ world of serviceman, ” again losing his enthrone. [ 5 ] After being about killed, Grodd was healed by the Nzame, a holy child to the gorilla of Gorilla City. He was prepared to kill the baby, but was on the spur of the moment summoned to Keystone City by Spin in an feat to defeat the Flash. Angered, Grodd proceeded to destroy Spin ‘s lair.
