Grodd, also known as Gorilla Grodd, is a non-human meta-human. Before the particle accelerator explosion, Grodd was part of an experiment done in collaboration between S.T.A.R. Laboratories and General Wade Eiling of the United States Army. During the particle accelerator explosion, he received many powers, including super-strength, enhanced agility and durability, and telepathy, all of which allowed him to escape from S.T.A.R. Labs.
