Gorilla Grodd is a silver-back gorilla that was experimented on by S.T.A.R. Labs. After being exposed to the energy from the particle accelerator, Grodd then escaped his cage and developed powerful psychic abilities.
Make America Grodd againGorilla Grodd
After Grodd was struck by the energy of the particle accelerator explosion but also due to all the drugs Eiling injected him with, this altered his DNA and supercharged his cells, augmenting his physiology into well-beyond normal gorilla condition. Grodd is capable of performing extraordinary physical feats.
Grodd is effortlessly able to pick up humans and rag doll them around.
Grodd is able to effortlessly throw a forklift truck at King Shark with one hand. The average forklift weighs about 9,000 lbs. Judging by how casually Grodd did this, it's safe to say that this is far from his upper limit as far as strength is concerned.
Grodd also possesses phenomenal striking strength, as he is able to launch human beings great distances and kill people with a single punch.
Grodd has even been shown strong enough to resist the gravitational pull of a breach and a fully powered speed canon. It was clear on team Flash's faces that they thought this was a remarkable feat and was shocked by Grodd's strength.
Gorilla Grodd is very skilled in combat, as he is able to go toe to toe against a way physically superior opponent in Solovar. He displays decent knowledge on martial arts throughout the fight and mastery of shield and spear in combat.
Grodd also shown himself to be a peer to King Shark in combat. Grodd gains the upper hand against King Shark in their fight, and King Shark needs an amp to defeat him.
Grodd has tanked fire from Heatwave's heatgun on multiple occasions. The fire burns through is fur, but doesn't seem to hurt him a lot, it seems to make him more angry if anything.
Fire... How primitive.Grodd to Mick
Grodd has tanked a barrage of speed punches by the Flash and remained unaffected.
Grodd is despite his size, super agile and can scale buildings with ease.
Grodd's reaction speed is quite remarkable as he has caught a supersonic punch. I repeat, he has caught a supersonic punch.
With the power to send neurological signals beyond himself and into others, Grodd gained mental-manipulation powers. Grodd most commonly uses this as a means to talk to others. He can also control humans that are near him like puppets and maintain the control for prolonged periods of time. For offensive purposes, Grodd can overwhelm the minds of his enemies with his own negative memories and severely disorient and cripple them. Such attacks also can be projected via those under mind-control.
Grodd can access the powers of meta humans while controlling them. Grodd can also mind control multiple people at once.
Inflicts crippling pain on Barry with his TP.
Grodd can take control over a persons body, without taking complete control over their mind. In his fight against the totem bearer referenced earlier, he completely freezes her muscles, rendering her unable to move. In this next situation Grodd has Joe turn a gun on himself and there is nothing Joe can do to stop it.
Grodd can also use his TP to detect the minds of others, he can also detect their emotions and feelings. His TP can also be used as a mental shield, as he is able to prevent other telepathy from entering his mind. Nora also comments on how he can use his psychic abilities to conceal his location and can't be found by satellites.
Grodd is not required to be in the mind of the person he controls at all times. The single second Argus' powering dempning shut down, was enough for Grodd to put instructions in a guards head to free him.
Grodd can use the people he mind controls as spies, as he can see what they see and feel what they feel. Grodd has on multiple occasions used this ability to scout an area to know if it's safe.
Grodd's most noticeable and dangerous trait is his high intellect, making him a threat even to humanity and other meta-humans like the Flash. In 2015, after escaping S.T.A.R. Labs, Grodd went and lived in the sewers and started making math equations on the walls of his sewer home, with his intelligence rapidly expanding. Said intellect include changing the direction of Barry's sonic punch. Very calculating and methodical in every action he takes. He is able to plan for every plausible detail several steps ahead, a trait he learned from Eobard. By 2017, he was able to construct a plan in which helped him take control of Gorilla City and all of his other fellow Gorilla-kind. He also proved to be a strong leader of Gorilla City once Solovar lost his position.
