History: (Avengers VII#12 (fb)) - Kofi managed
his small bar in Timbuktu as the Gorilla-Man began accruing a tab. When
the Black Panther arrived at the bar to speak with Gorilla-Man, Kofi
cleaned a glass while the two spoke. Curious if the Black Panther had
come to kill him, Gorilla-Man warned that his death would transform the
killer into a talking gorilla like himself and asked Black Panther if
he knew how much beer it took to get a gorilla blackout drunk, further
informing Kofi to keep the beers coming. When Black Panther offered
Gorilla-Man a job, Kofi chose that moment to remind Gorilla-Man about
his tab. Gorilla-Man responded by telling Kofi to send the bill to Tony
Stark, as he was an Avenger now, but Black Panther commented that he
didn't want Gorilla-Man for the Avengers.
Comments: Created by Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness, Cory Smith, Mark Morales, Karl Kesel and Scott Hanna.
Kofi's height & weight were impossible to
approximate, as he was only ever seen standing up while characters
whose height & weight had been officially determined were sitting.
There was no good angle to determine what Kofi's height & weight
might be in relation to either Black Panther or Gorilla-Man.
Additionally, his eye color was impossible to determine, as he was seen
either squinting or his eyes were colored as black dots instead of
Profile by Proto-Man.
Kofi has no known connections to:
