Hear me out.

I'm asking this because I am looking for some strange comic book stories, but also because in the Captain America films, the captain himself draws/has a drawing of a dancing monkey. Yes, I know that it is simultaneously a reference to Captain America's cartoonist roots while also being an allegory for the US government's treatment of Captain America. However, I would just like to know if the captain of America has ever been a simian. The closest thing I can think of is the Marvel Apes universe. I'm guessing that there could be at least one more instance (the '60s were a weird time for comics).

    @JohnP That seems like a proper answer, worthy of more than just being a comment. – JAB Mar 30 '18 at 20:17

    Technically, he's always been an ape, as humans are apes – alexgbelov Mar 30 '18 at 21:49

    @jpmc26 - Hence why a comment rather than an answer :-) – Valorum Mar 30 '18 at 22:43

    I don't recall this scene of Cap drawing himself as a dancing monkey. – Azor Ahai Mar 30 '18 at 23:42

If you count the Marvel Apes universe as an example, then yes, Captain America has been depicted as a simian:
