QUOTE: "Grodd touched my mind... gave me knowledge of myself. I had only walked amid the trees, now I knew the roots." A canine soldier of Grodd's army

SUMMARY:  The Flash, Pied Piper, and Vixen are prisoners of Gorilla Grodd! Caged like animals and forced to wear shock collars, the three heroes are powerless to stop the villain's sinister scheme to overthrow human society. The only hope for salvation lies with an inhuman superhero. Rex the Wonder Dog, a canine transformed by a super-soldier serum, has arrived in Keystone City to turn the tide of the conflict. Though Grodd has given his army of animals the gift of sentience, his megalomaniacal personality demands they act as his obedient slaves. Rex is able to communicate with the dogs in Grodd's following and thus begins to sow the seeds of rebellion. The rats, cats, and dogs in its rank are ready to fight for their rights. With some help from the fastest man alive, the vast and diverse animal army that Grodd has spawned will prove to be his very undoing.
