Sam Simeon is a gorilla detective and cartoonist, partnered with Angel O'Day as the crime-fighting duo Angel and the Ape. His ability to talk is shared with the other simians of Gorilla City, as his grandfather is Gorilla Grodd. After the New 52 reboot, Sam was completely reimagined as the human-turned-gorilla Primeape. Sam Simeon was created by E. Nelson Bridwell and Bob Oksner, first appearing in Showcase #77. (1968)
