Brass Monkey
Real Name:
Search for 'Brass Monkey' on Amazon

Made of solid brass through and through, the Brass Monkey possesses super-strength. He is strong enough to easily tear through Jack-in-the-Box's confetti. He also possesses all the agility one would expect of a monkey.

The Brass Monkey is an Astro City crime boss who, as his name implies, is literally a brass monkey. Formerly a janitor at Fox-Broome University, he used an experimental device there to transfer his mind into a brass monkey statue. He planned to use this metal body to commit crimes, but when his real body was killed, he found himself stuck in that form.

His underlings, the Gorilla Troops, are regular humans who wear gorilla masks and army camo. His primary foe is Jack-in-the-Box.
