Gorilla City is a city appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The city, hidden in the jungles of Africa, is home to a race of super-intelligent gorillas, that gained their powers from a meteorite. The supervillain Gorilla Grodd is also from the city. Gorilla City first appears in The Flash vol. 1 #106, (April 1959) and was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino.
While the current version of Gorilla City debuted in The Flash vol. 1 #106, the very first appearance of a location identified as Gorilla City occurred four years earlier in Congo Bill vol. 1 #6 (July 1955), by George Kashdan and Nick Cardy. The intelligent Gorillas in this story came from a "two mooned world" that Congo Bill assumed to be Mars.
After an alien spacecraft crashes into the jungles of Africa, a local troop of gorillas become hyper-intelligent and acquire telepathic abilities. These gorillas form Gorilla City. The city, led by Solovar, quickly creates technology far surpassing that of humanity and cloaks itself from human society. Flash first finds out about the city due to Gorilla Grodd, who probed Solovar's mind to find how to control minds, before trying to take over Gorilla City, then the world. However, Flash defeated him. Gorilla Grodd took over the city briefly using neo-magnetic radiation. The radiation caused the rest of the gorillas to adore him, and they made him their king.
In Flashpoint Grodd rules Gorilla City and has taken over Africa, killing many humans in the process.
