Subj: marvelous monkey puns (will edit to add more when i think of them)

I have read marvel apes, spider monkey, and gruntline and have mostly enjoyed them (the original marvel apes watcher back up story sucked, but otherwise i liked them). But I do notice marvel seems to have run low on monkey puns.
They have reached the point of just inserting OOK into names, i didn't mind doctor ooktopus in the first story as i like discworld and found the librarian reference amusing but it is getting old.
I noticed alot of the older monkey puns I made as jokes got used in marvel apes (i said boom-orang and they had boomeranutan, i said batroc the lemur, they had batrook who just happened to be a lemur, etc.), this is likely just coincidence, but if marvel is swinging froma vine looking for ideas lets give them a banana bunch of marvel monkey puns to choose from. This is much tougher than it sounds as most of the good ones have been used, i could only think of three or 4 and i am good with puns. Maybe you can add more.
Langur the Screamer
Macaquerrai of the Eternals
Squirrel Monkey of the Great Ape Avengers
Serpent Crown of Marmoset
Chimpion of the elders of the universe.
I wonder if the favorite candy of marvel apes are Rhesus Pieces.
