Have I ever mentioned that the second issue of the Fantastic Four that I ever purchased for myself featured them fighting a giant golden gorilla?
See, the High Evolutionary "created" Gorr, and sent him to Earth, so he could bring back help to fight off Galactus.
And not only was Gorr super-evolved and intelligent and talkative...
And he had clothes:
Anyway, after the Counter-Earth/Galactus dust-up, Gorr stayed with the High Evolutionary. He had a glorified cameo in a Marvel Two-In-One story in 1980. And then he was kidnapped by the Stranger during a Quasar storyline in 1990, because Mark Gruenwald...and he hasn't been seen since.
Marvel...you've got a super-strong intelligent golden gorilla (who can sometimes grow to giant-size) in your menagerie of characters--and you haven't used him in 25 years!! What the hell?!?
I expect the All-New, All Different Gorr #1 soon, guys.
From Fantastic Four #171-172 (1976)
