However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • In Greek myth, Tethys was one of the Titans who helped Zeus overthrow Cronus.
  • In Greek Myth, Tethys was the foster-mother of Hera, Hestia and Demeter.
