Personality and attributes
Powers and abilities
His power actually derived from the spirit of the Gorilla God Ngi who was summoned into the world by the ancient Jabari tribe of Wakanda. They had called forth a champion to protect them from their enemies with this being a mix of human and gorilla thus making the Gorilla-Man. However, the spirit grew savage and wanted to take over the world as its only god leading to it being slain by a champion thus enacting a curse whereby each person who slayed the Goilla-Man became the next successor. (Marvel Comics Presents v3 #2)
