Okay, in Adventure Comics #219 back in 1955, Superboy battled this rare giant gorilla called Chandu who drank water contaminated with Kryptonite that "blessed" him with a host of super-vision powers including X-Ray, heat, and Kryptonite Visions (yeah, I know, sounds a lot like Titano the Super-Ape) every time a lightning storm strikes.

Well, I wanted to have a Chandu figure for my Superboy set, so I got myself an extra Gorilla Grodd. First, I set about removing his telepathic headpiece, and then I filled the exposed holes in his head with Milliput. Once the Millupt was dry, I used my dremel with my engraving tool attachment to carve out the Milliput to more closely match the tufts of hair on the sides, top, and back of his head. Next, I mixed myself some dark gray paint to more match the dark areas of the Grodd body and I repainted the entire back portion of the head. Once the paint was dry, I applied a light dusting of light gray paint in a dry brushing method over all of the areas of the hair, and TA-DA...Chandu the Gorilla With X-Ray Eyes!!!!

Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.
