Killer Gorilla is believed to have been another attempt by the evil Dr Otto's experiments to try to create a perfect super-soldier.
Dr Otto, one a respected government scientist, was disgraced when his super solider program ended up a failure, and since them he had continued his work in secret, financing his research through crime. his super-soldier program is responsible for creating a wave of supervillains- the rejects from his experiments, cast aside as he pursuits other areas of study.
Killer Gorilla isn't Dr Otto's first attempt to 'up-lift' an ape- it is believed that Deathorilla, the criminal super-genius, was the result of one of his experiments, but while Deathorilla had his intellectual capacity was greatly enhanced, Killer Gorilla has tremendously augmented physical prowess. The great ape has been pumped full of the mutogenic agent, and he is now a giant, standing twelve feet tall. While few can match his physical strength, Killer Gorilla has been further 'enhanced' by Dr Otto's experiments, addition of an array of cybernetic weaponry, including a gauss cannon and an electro-gauntlet.
Killer Gorilla is another of the Reaper Bones, purchased from Miniature Heroes- this model is a lovely one to paint. I am very aware that I have been a bit poor at painting any four-colour supers figures for ages, and that this blog has 'strayed' somewhat from it's roots as a 28mm supers blog, and so I thought that for the end of the year I would have to paint something suitable...I hope you like it.
