* Mildly {{Deconstructed}} in ''Combook/{{PS238}}''--years ago they bio-engineered Argo the Wonder Dog for [[SupermanSubstitute Atlas]], but his SuperSenses combined with a dog's already sensitive hearing resulted in SensoryOverload, so he was sent to live in a special doghouse on the moon. [[SuperheroTeam The Earth Defense League]] has a base nearby, so presumably they help watch over him a bit.

** And then there was the Space Canine Patrol Agency, an LSH-like team of super-powered dogs that Krypto encountered on one of his romps through space and joined, sharing a few adventures. They don't quite qualify for this trope, though, as all the members were depicted as life-like dogs rather than anthropomorphic animals; that was left for the villains! We will mercifully pass over the Space ''Cat'' Patrol Agency, who also appeared in one panel of the first SCPA story...
** As [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] flavour slowly [[{{Reconstruction}} creeps back into comics]], Krypto has returned as Superman's loyal if unpredictable pet.

** And we have a new animal SociopathicHero to boot, [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]] [[CatsAreMean Dex-Starr]]!
** There's also Detective Chimp, a genius (by human standards) chimpanzee who can [[SpeaksFluentAnimal communicate with animals]].
** DC also has at least two gorilla supervillain, Gorilla Grodd, an EvilGenius [[MindControl mind controlling]] gorilla who gained his powers from a [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum crashed alien ship]] [[RetCon or]] a [[GreenRocks meteor]], and Monsieur Mallah, who gained his superhuman intelligence from a MadScientist's experiements.
*** Then there's Grodd's heroic nephew, Sam Simian of ''ComicBook/AngelAndTheApe.''
*** Grodd is connected (exactly how varies pretty much every time his origin story gets retold) to Gorilla City, an entire city of genius gorillas. They're not superheroes (though their former leader, Solovar, wore a cape and had psychic powers similar to Grodd's), but on the other hand, they ''are'' gorillas, so even an ordinary citizen of Gorilla City is far stronger than a human.

** Ace the Bat-Hound in Silver Age ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics. Who wore a cowl to hide a distinctive patch on his fur. And now there's Bat-Cow, who started as a one-off joke in ''ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman'', but has since had a brief solo story in a ''Batman Incorporated'' one-shot and sort of teamed up with the [[ComicBook/NewGods Forever People]].
