Ed’s note about these Characters:
- Congorilla,a spin on an old Golden AGE DC Character, was introduced in between the 1st appearances of Brainiac (Action #242) and SUPERGIRL (Action #252). Not bad for a back up character.
- So who the heck is Congo Bill or Congorilla? Well, we suggest you think of a Congo Bill adventure as “Indiana Jones meets Tarzan”
- Congorilla (gorilla, origin); Congo Bill [William Glenmorgan]; Gloria (actress); Janu the Jungle Boy; Chief Kawolo (death); Mr. Reiger (villain, movie director); Reiger’s assistant (villain)
- Synopsis: Congo Bill is a long time DC Golden Age Adventurer character. When he saves the life of tribal Chief Kawolo, he is given a magic ring that can cause his mind to be exchanged with that of a golden gorilla. Later, a movie crew tries to capture the now-intelligent Congorilla.
