Ten years before his own death, a French scientist experimented upon a large gorilla that was stronger and more agile than most others of its species. Through a combination of secret teaching methods, shock treatments and other experimental methods, the gorilla's IQ was raised to 178. The gorilla learned to speak English and French, among other languages and took the name Monsieur Mallah.
When the scientist died, Mallah, following instructions, removed the scientist's brain from his body and placed it inside a specially designed receptacle. The Brain and Monsieur Mallah then formed the Brotherhood of Evil and tried to take over the world.
- Mallah is an iconic villain who appears at various locations in Metropolis as part of the More Than You Can Chew and Fanboy feats. If a hero encounters him he will knock them back and then leave, if a villain encounters him he will make a comment and then disappear.
- Monsieur Mallah first appeared in Doom Patrol #86 (March, 1964)
