The Man Ape

Man ApeThe Man-Ape is the head of the Wakanda White Gorilla tribe.

The Man-Ape challenged King T'Chaka for the kingship of Wakanda, having arranged for Klaw to secretly help the Man-Ape by using a sonic weapon to weaken T'Chaka during the fight. The Man-Ape killed King T'Chaka and usurped the throne.

The Man-Ape opened the Sacred Vibranium Mound to HYDRA, who had just begun mining operations when the Black Panther returned with the Avengers to challenge the Man-Ape.  Defeated in ritual combat by the Black Panther, the status of the Man-Ape is unclear, but presumably he is imprisoned in Wakanda.
