Apeslayer is a former slave fighter for the apes who has escaped to lead a human rebellion against 'The Generals' and their human collaborators.
- Apeslayer is exclusive to the continuity of the UK Planet of the Apes comic books published by Marvel Comics. A couple of years earlier, Marvel had adapted H.G. Wells ‘War Of The Worlds’, featuring a young freedom fighter known as Killraven. Thus, with a few quick edits, the adventures of red-haired Killraven were edited and revised as 'Apeslayer'.
