He Wants a Devolution is a mission unique to heroes that selected Superman as their Mentor at character creation. It is automatically granted to characters following the completion of the mission Gorilla Warfare; He Wants a Devolution takes place in the Little Bohemia district of the city of Metropolis, and is part of the Story Arc Survival of the Fittest: Episode 1.


Gorilla Grodd's attack on Little Bohemia continues, but the city's defenders are rallying against the threat. With a number of Grodd's Devolution Units out of commission, it is time to turn the attention to his Gorilla Neural Arrays. Once these devices are destroyed, it will be possible to halt, and even reverse, the effects of Grodd's devolution technology.
