Congorilla is a superhero in the DC Universe who was an explorer who's mind was place in a gorilla's body.


A gamekeeper in the Congo, William Glenmorgan had made friends with a local witchdoctor.  The witchdoctor, on his deathbed, gave "Congo Bill" a magic ring that he claimed could put his mind in the body of a golden gorilla.  Though skeptical at first, Bill learned in a time of crisis that it was true and began to fight evil as the Congorilla.


William Glenmorgan was born in the United Kingdom the son of a Scottish gamekeeper (no other information of his parents is known) and was born in 1898.  For a time, he was a member of the IRA and was a soldier at the Battle of Somme during the first World War.  He became an explorer and an adventurer, making his home somewhere in Africa (where exactly is unknown).
