In 1946 Stalin came to the conclusion that he needed soldiers that were obiedient, and loyal beyond the point of doubt, or contempt.  He came to the conclusion that human soldiers, no matter the physical or psycological conditioning would never attain this state.  He then sought scientists who could MANUFACTURE soldiers that were completely loyal to him, and more importantly disposable in the name of the state.  To this end PROJECT: OCTOBER SWORD was born.  One division of this project manipulated simian DNA through chemical and radiation process to where an end product of loyal human like apes were produced.  As an added bonus several of the 500 apes made from this processed special powers.  One of these ape-men, dubbed SAPIUS, had the power of telepathy and telekenesis.  This subject however did develop a will and personality of his own, and soon used his powers to free his fellow ape men from the bonds imposed by his creators.  Sapius then waged a war with this small army against the both sides of the cold war.  On several occasions he came close to victory, but was thwarted time and again by costumed adventurers such as The Alliance and The Phantom Five.  Sapius in 1968 after years of stalemate approached the United Nations for formal diplomatic talks.  In 1972 the UN gave Sapius a probationary nation status, and was allowed to live with his followers on a small South Pacific Island.  In 1975 an event from an invading alien force brought Sapius and his people to the aid of the human race.  The conflict left thousands dead, dozens of heroes and villains killed and Sapius’ entire people wiped out. Sapius now resides alone on his island in a dead deserted city, contemplating if there was something he could have done to save his people…
