Erik Gorbo was a scientist working for S.H.I.E.L.D. who used their facilities to create a serum that enabled him to turn into a monstrous ape in order to commit crimes. His persistent monkeying around led him into conflict with Captain America and the Falcon.[1]

He later sacrificed his life when protecting Captain America from Mole Man's attack.[2]
