Gorilla Grodd

Through millions of years of adaptation and change, human beings evolved to become the dominant species on the planet Earth. But for the super-villain known as Grodd, the world shouldn't belong to the humans. It belongs to the apes. 

Hailing from the technologically advanced Gorilla City, home to hyper-intelligent primates living in their own secret, secluded society, Grodd stood apart from his fellow simians through his telepathic and telekinetic powers. Believing that his city’s benevolence was keeping the gorillas from achieving what was rightly theirs, Grodd overthrew the leader of Gorilla City and took his place—a first step in his ultimate goal of taking over the rest of the world and establishing apes as the ruling species on the planet. It was the intervention of the Flash that ultimately stopped the villain's scheme, and forever placed the two as bitter rivals.

Grodd has a brutal nature and a level of enhanced strength that make him incredibility dangerous in a physical fight. This is presuming you're even able to get close enough to him to throw a punch as his powerful telepathic abilities give him a distinct advantage over most of his enemies. Along with his strength and aggression, Grodd is also highly intelligent and a master statistician. It is this perfect combination of brain, brawn and savagery that cements Grodd's conviction of his place at the top of the evolutionary scale. And anyone who challenges his claim, will find themselves learning the true meaning of survival of the fittest.

Powerless: Who the Heck are Crimson Fox and Jack O'Lantern?

They may not inspire the adoration and instant recognition (to say nothing about their value in the Super Hero Fantasy League) as Superman or Batman, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not every bit the hero. Even though one of them is kinda a villain. Yes, Powerless fans, I’m talking about Charm City’s two most frequently spotted colorful crusaders—Crimson Fox and Jack O’Lantern.

Riding Out The Wild Storm

Some of the biggest storms start quietly.

I say this, having just finished reading the first issue of THE WILD STORM, the debut title in DC’s newest pop-up imprint, WildStorm. (Which actually isn’t new per se, but this version certainly is.) The Wild Storm, written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Jon Davis-Hunt, is the flagship and premiere title from the imprint and our first taste of what we can expect from the return of these classic characters.

LEGO Batman Drops a Sweet New Single

LEGO Batman sure seems to like the sound of his own voice, which means he must be a BIG fan of Patrick Stump. The Fall Out Boy singer and guitarist provides Batman’s singing voice for his spotlight song in the upcoming, heavily anticipated LEGO Batman Movie.
