First Appearance: Action Comics (vol. 1) #248 (Jan. 1959): "The Amazing Congorilla"
Super? (Has Super Powers/Special Abilities/Technology): Yes
Number of Appearances: 35
Enemy of: Janu
Ally: Congo Bill
Note: golden-haired gorilla; sacred to an African tribe
Using a mystic ring, humans were able to switch minds with the gorilla named Congorilla.
Congorilla himself, however, apparently had a regular gorilla consciousness. So despite his peculiar mystical nature and despite his status as sacred beast, perhaps even a being of worship, he is not classified as an "uplifted animal." To be classified as an "uplifted animal," he would have to exhibit true sentience or human-level intelligence.
