    Mobster George “Boss” Dyke died in the gas chamber of the Gotham State prison on a cold rainy evening. On Dyke’s orders, his body was retrieved by members of his own gang and presented to disgraced surgeon Doc Willard. Performing radical surgery, Willard transplanted the hood’s brain into the body of a towering gorilla. Though no longer capable of speech he was able to communicate with his men by pen and paper. Gorilla Boss fights Batman twice and is quickly defeated. The alien Sinestro steals the Gorilla Boss' cerebellum, expands it to a planet-size to use a power source. Superman later destroys the abomination. The boss is later returned to his gorilla body.
