History

History: The Titans are the children and progeny of the ancient primeval sky-god, Ouranus, and his wife, Gaea, the primeval earth-goddess. Ouranus was very proud of the Titans for their physical perfection, but Gaea had other children known as the Cyclopes, who had one eye in the center of their heads, and the many-armed Hecatocheiroi. Ouranus hated his other children and exiled them into the other-dimensional world of Tartarus. Gaea greatly grieved for her children and called upon one of her sons to depose Ouranus and free their siblings from the underworld. None of her sons would raise a weapon against Ouranus except for Cronus, the youngest of the Titans, who used a sickle to castrate Ouranus and dismember his corpse. The dying Ouranus prophesized that Cronus would be overthrown by one of his own sons.

Cronus seized Olympus and ruled over Ancient Greece, but he neglected to free the Cyclopes or the Hecatocheiroi. His wife, Rhea, was guided by Gaea to conceal the birth of her son, Zeus. Upon adulthood, Zeus freed the Cyclopes and the Hecatocheiroi as allies to conquer Olympus. Zeus was supported by a few of the Titans and by his freed siblings, supposedly swallowed by Cronus in order to prevent the prophecy of Ouranus. The Titans were defeated and imprisoned in Tartarus, watched over by the god, Hades, who reserved part of the underworld as a realm of the dead.

In later years, Thia escaped the underworld and gained power both on earth and in the heavens by masquerading as a mortal business woman. Her mortal daughter, Lilith, with the help of the Teen Titans, confronted her. During the battle on Olympus, Thia released the rest of the Titans before she was defeated. From among them, Cronus spawned a new breed of far more deadlier Titans and returned to Olympus a few years later to oust Zeus from power for himself. Powered by the Godwave, he then turned his direction against the other gods of earth, particularly against the Hindu Gods, using their realm as a stepping stone to invade Elysium, the Judeo-Christian afterlife. Confronted by Wonder Woman and a team of Olympian gods, Hindu gods and several archangels, he was defeated by Gaea herself and once more exiled to Tartarus.
