    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Africa found itself a helmeted loinclothed champion of mammals when Scribe Bob Haney and artist Mike Sekowsky presented B'wana Beast. After his plane crash landed on Mount Kilimanjaro, Mike Maxwell drank mysterious cavern water that granted him great strength. He also befriended the Gorilla Djuba, who gave Maxwell a helmet that enabled him to communicate and control animals and actually fuse them together into a chimera.

    As B'wana Beast, Maxwell protected Africa against the likes of Hamid Ali, an immortal poacher who used robotic monstrosities to do his dirty work. Having thwarted Ali during his two consecutive issues of Showcase, B'wana Beast conquered a loyal following among DC readers.

    I b'wanna read some more 0

    The b'wanna beast first appearance was a very good story. You may not recognize him. He has appeared in batman the brave and the bold, teen titans go auditions, and is now known as animal man. Interesting issue, I mean who would have though of the power to mix animals into awesome hybrids. The only weird part is what is up with his costume It like a where's waldo bathing suit meets the stone age. I also have reviewed the second issue as well. ...
