BiographyEdit

From Man to MonsterEdit

The youth of Ken Hale has yet to be revealed, though he was likely born in the early 20th century. Ken Hale was a soldier-of-fortune who was preoccupied with immortality so much that when he heard of a legendary "Gorilla Man", a half-gorilla creature that would grant immortality to any man able to slay it, he left his wife and child to kill it. When he finally found the beast, he found it too human and chose not to kill it. However, after attempting to leave the jungle, Ken got lost and Ken confronted by the Gorilla-Man, and Ken was forced to kill it in self-defense. Upon killing the Gorilla-Man, he transformed into the Gorilla-Man himself (with increased strength speed and immortality), unable to return to human form.

G-ManEdit

In the 1950's, he was recruited by FBI agent Jimmy Woo to join his team of special G-Men. His first mission involved saving President Ike Eisenhower from the supervillain (and Jimmy Woo's archnemesis) the Yellow Claw, which ended with the President saved and the Claw defeated (though he did escape). This team of G-Men disbanded after 6 months.
