The name for the combined entity of Congo Bill and the Golden Gorilla. Though magical rings worn by both Congo Bill and the Golden Gorilla, the two were able to switch minds for one hour. Thus, the mind of Congo Bill was in the body of a very powerful gorilla.
In the area of the Golden Gorilla's natural African home, Congo Bill received the added bonus of the legend surrounding the gorilla, which sometimes worked to his advantage as much as the gorilla's strength.
Although Congo Bill first appeared in 1940, his last name was not revealed until 60 years later in Justice League of America (2007) #47.
