"What do you take me for? A troglodyte!?"[2]

Ultra-Humanite was an albino gorilla-humanoid whose intelligence is far superior to most men. Unfortunately, his true talents were not put to use when he served as a member of the Injustice Gang.

History

Unique among the supervillains, Humanite was a true lover of the arts, such as opera. That passion was so strong that Batman took advantage of it to persuade him to turn on Lex Luthor and his Injustice Gang. As a result, Humanite turned himself in so he could savor in prison the cultural programming made possible by a massive donation Batman gave in his name, double what Luthor was paying him.[2]

Ultra-Humanite showed his more "human" side some time later. He originally wanted to destroy a massive museum collection of statues of modern art, which he saw as "garbage," but he took a break from villainy to spend Christmas with Flash and some orphans with a toy the Flash was bringing that he accidentally broke, but refitted to tell the story of The Nutcracker.[1]

Background information

In the Golden Age comics, Ultra-Humanite was a genius scientist, possibly the first comic book supervillain, who in fact transplanted his brain into a plethora of different bodies to preserve his own life, eventually settling for the albino gorilla due to its immense strength. The mad scientist in his original body had a very weak body due to old age but genius-like intelligence, which was meant to be the antithesis of Superman, who had super-strength and a healthy body but his mind and intelligence were the same as other men. Early on the creators decided to instead focus on Lex Luthor as the "mad scientist villian", and Ultra-Humanite was less seen.

While initially he was a Superman foe, he eventually preferred to have the Justice Society as his enemy. In recent years, a new Ultra-Humanite has shown up to battle Power Girl, while the original became part of the Time Stealers in Booster Gold's title.
