- — Monsieur Mallah src
Mallah was once a normal gorilla until he was taken into captivity by humans. He was experimented on by a French scientist who gave him a human intellect and the two formed a lasting friendship. One night there was a fire in the lab set by jealous competitors and the kindly scientist was fatally injured. Using what the scientist taught him he was able to save the scientist's brain by placing it in a jar. From that day forth the pair held scorn for humans who had only ever harmed them. The pair became members of the Brotherhood of Evil calling themselves Monsieur Mallah and the Brain and the team came into contact with the Teen Titans and the Doom Patrol as low grade villains who weren't taken very seriously by their enemies. Eventually the Brotherhood disbanded but Mallah and the Brain continued waging war against humanity.
