Eric Gore was a medical specialist working on revolutionary skin grafting techniques. An explosion in his lab destroyed his hand and left him partially blind. Gore replaced his hand with that of a research ape. He soon found that he craved power and withdrew to an uncharted island to plot his conquest of humanity. There he found the apes on the island mistook him for a god and did his bidding. Gore's plans were undone when Thunderbolt was washed up on the island during a storm. Thunderbolt was captured and forced to fight Gore's apes to earn a chance at freedom. Gore broke his word when Thunderbolt won. The apes sensed Gore didn't honor his bargain. When an explosion occurred in Gore's lab, Gore's ape assistant, Gon-Da, saved the honorable Thunderbolt and left Gore to die.
