Ape Man is an OC superhero of Nighlocktheawesome's. As his name implies, he is a human who can transform into a gorilla.
Originally known as Ricky Apemen, along with his sister, was part of Project: Weapon X, in the African chapter. He was then forcefully subjected to experiment that turned him into a brown haired gorilla. Feeling that this was an act of betrayal towards him, he took his sister and fled with her, fearing they would do the same to her.
They were pursued by Weapon X mercilessly, until his sister was killed. He buried her in the jungle and proceeded to make a new home and hide out.
