The Man-Apes were Neanderthals[1] (or Neanderthal-like creatures) living in the Savage Land.[2]


Maa-Gor's tribe were said to have been the last living Man-Apes in the Savage Land.[3]

Ka-Zar killed the last male Man-Apes of this tribe except Maa-Gor himself. When Maa-Gor was transformed into the Man-God, he resurrected his tribe, but they disappeared after he lost his powers.[4]

A bunch of Neanderthals were shown living on an island in the Savage Land's inland sea. They ended up in a fight with Wolverine (who was trying to save the S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent that they captured) until Shanna the She-Devil arrives.[5] While setting out to destroy the Cthulhu-type machine, Wolverine and Shanna the She-Devil encounter heavy Neanderthal resistance.[6] During the fight against the Neanderthals, Shanna was killed by one of them, leaving Wolverine alone. Luckily for Wolverine, Amadeus Cho was also on the island and convinced the Neanderthals that he was their god and to help Shanna[7] by using the life blood of a Man-Thing native to the Savage Land to resurrect her.[8]
