Template:Character BoxGorilla Grodd is a genius gorilla and an enemy of the Flash.



Gorilla Grodd is a highly-evolved ape with extraordinary mental abilities. Fueled by his intense hatred for humanity, Grodd uses his advanced intellect and mind control in his ongoing battles with The Flash and the Justice League. These powers along with his brute strength and ferocious animal nature make him a lethal threat to all who oppose him!



Powers, Skills, and Abilities,

    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Superhuman Agility: Being a Gorilla, Grodd has agility many times of a human.
    • Superhuman Durability: White not invulnerable in a traditional sense, Grodd has shown greater durability than a human or normal gorilla, being able to stop Barry's super-speed punch with one hand and surviving being hit by a subway train with no physical after-effects.

    • Animal Control:
    • Mind Control: Althrough not as forceful as his telepathic abilities, his ability to control another sentient mind is a dangerous one. He was able to control the likes of Captain Cold without ever being to noticed by the JLA or Cold himself.
    • Mind Transference:
    • Empathy:
    • Telepathy: In spite of not being one of the eiders, Grodd's time trapped in the speed force gave him the psychic abilitie apes grow into with age.
    • Telekinesis: A unigue trait all his own, is Grodd's evolved ability to effect and manipulate matter with his mind. With the transferal of Barry's Speed Force energy into himself, Grodd has since reestablished these powers.
    • Power Asborption: By taking to the old Gorilla City tradition of devouring his fallen enemies' brains Grodd or any of his species would gain the knowledge and abilities of their victims. Grodd could potentially assimilate any powers of those whose minds he devoured possess. 
    • Speed Force Evolution: All apes of Gorilla City possess their accelerated physical and mental attributes due to their societies interactions with the quantum phenomena called the Speed Force. Through further exposure to it, Grodd could enhance himself, greatly expediting his evolution by leaps and bounds, even coming further along than an originator of his kind like King Solovar.
