There are so many characters in the DC Universe that are gorillas, monkeys, chimpanzees, or some other kind of primate. Let’s have a thread that celebrates them!

I just finished this book, it was good fun!

Nice to see Gleek, and at least the Wonder Twins got a mention in a text box.

Reportedly the issue of Strange Adventures that started the ape craze at DC Comics, Strange Adventures no. 8 (May 1951). Apparently, it sold so well that apes started appearing regularly on issues of Strange Adventures and then spread to other DC titles as well. Just think, if Strange Adventures no. 8 had sold poorly, we might not have Titano, Gorilla Grodd, Monsieur Mallah, or any of the other wonderful primates at DC!

then dc knows what they need to do now to boost sales (and it could be why the ape-ril special even exists in the first place)
