After a huge build-up last season for a single full-episode appearance, iconic Flash villain Gorilla Grodd will make his way back to The Flash during Season Two, ComicBook.com has learned while on set for the show this week.
Grodd, for those who didn't watch or don't remember, is a hyperintelligent gorilla with abnormal strength and reflexes. In the comics, he got his powers from meteorite exposure, along with another gorilla named Solovar, who is king of a whole culture of superintelligent gorillas. In the TV show, he has enhanced strength and mental powers as a result of being near the particle accelerator when it exploded.
Grodd has been a major nemesis of the Flash ever since Barry Allen took the job; he first appeared in 1959's Flash #106. In more recent comics, he's been known to have a loose connection to the Speed Force, giving him enhanced speed not on the level of Barry Allen, but certainly enough to make him a serious threat given all his other abilities.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
