Doctor Zaius was an orangutan leading member of the Ape National Assembly, Minister of Science and also Chief Defender of the Faith.

Zaius was a statesman who lived in Ape City during the latter half of the 40th century. He was a leading member of the Ape National Assembly, and served a dual role in ape society as Minister of Science in charge of advancing ape knowledge and also as Chief Defender of the Faith. He saw no contradiction between his two roles but in the end he chose to emphasize the blind faith of the ape religion and traditions over the scientific suggestions of the chimpanzees, preferring a stagnant, imperfect, faith-based ape culture that kept humans in check, to the open, scientific, human-curious one proposed by Cornelius and Zira's generation.

 

About MEGO Corporation

Originally founded in 1954 by Dave Abrams, Marty Abrams, now commonly known as 'the father of action figures,' took the helm of the company in 1971 and shifted the direction to licensed action figures.  He included the 'World’s Greatest Super Heroes' line), celebrity dolls, and the Micronauts toy line. Mego became famous for its 8-inch scale figures with interchangeable bodies. Eventually, this became an industry standard.

Mego Corporation re-launched in 2018 with a partnership between Marty Abrams and Joel Rosenzweig, focusing on 8-inch Action figures and launching with popular licenses from CBS, Warner Brothers, Sony, and Epic.
