Antaeus is a name used by two characters in the DC Universe. The original was a member of the New Olympians who fought the Outsiders. He had super-strength, but only as long as he was connected to the Earth. His name is taken from the half-giant Antaeus in Greek mythology, who is the son of Poseidon and Gaia. There was a second Antaeus who became a member of the Justice League during Superpower. This version had cybernetic augmentation from S.T.A.R. Labs. Antaeus was created by Mike W. Barr and Bill Willingham, first appearing in Batman and the Outsiders #14. (1984)
