Grodd was born in 1998. Grodd was an ape subjected to Kobra Venom and brain enhancement procedures by the Brain and Ultra-Humanite in Gorilla City hidden somewhere in the Bwundan Jungle. Grodd acquired the power of telepathy but kept it secret from his masters. On September 26th, Grodd and several gorillas were dispatched to capture the Team. Grodd and Solovar easily neutralized them with Proprietary Collars. Grodd and Wolf simply stared at one another before Wolf walked off into the jungle. When Miss Martian regained consciousness, Grodd telepathically communicated with her and demanded help. The other gorillas interjected and explained what happened. Grodd was shocked to learn Miss Martian was not leader of her team despite her mental prowess. He was skeptical of the planned revolution but Solovar pushed forward.

Grodd returned to Gorilla City with Wolf. However, Robin escaped his restraints and attacked Grodd. Solovar commanded Grodd to spare Robin's life. Grodd complied and set up a telepathic link among the Team. He quickly explained the plan to them. During battle against the Brain's forces, Grodd gained the upper hand on Ultra-Humanite to avenge Tolifhar but revealed his telepathic powers. After Gorilla City blew up, Grodd was reunited with his mate Primat and son Simeon. With Congorilla gone, Grodd contemplated his own ascension to fill the void left by the "Holy One." On December 1st, Team Year Five, Grodd was teleported to the Moon and imprisoned in Weapons Room 16 by Kylstar. He was later freed along with the others taken. Once in Metropolis, Grodd used his telepathic powers to render himself, Devastation, Mammoth, and the Terror Twins invisible to the Team and Justice League. Grodd reminded them they all owed him.
