2) ANGEL & THE APE
When Ange; O’Day and Sam Simeon first popped up in the pages of DC’s Showcase in 1968, no real explanation for Sam’s clearly gorilla nature was given. Their solo book likewise glossed past this bit, playing off the strange ‘Beauty and The Beast’ dynamic in charming adventures that never focused on what their actual deal was. AFter the Crisis On Infinite Earths, though, the truth came to light by way of a brilliant retcon: Sam was in truth a resident of Gorilla City. Moreover, like his grandpappy, he has the ability to use ‘Mind-Force” to convince people that he’s just a normal, albeit beetle-browed and hirsute, guy.
Fans of The Flash are painfully aware of said grampa’s mental powers; we know him as… Gorilla Grodd.
