Atlas was a Titan defeated by Zeus and the other Olympians along with his siblings were defeated by the Olympians.

The Titan Atlas was made to bear the weights of the heavens after the victory of Zeus and the Olympians over the Titans and was tricked by Herakles into lifting it again during his labors.[2] He once made a deal with the wizard Mamaragan to provide his legendary stamina to a champion of his choosing.[3]

At some point, he escaped his imprisonment and went into hiding. He was eventually found and attacked by Shazam, who had been driven mad by the Batman Who Laughs. Shazam attacked Atlas in order to test his new limits and, despite the Titan's resistance, beat him badly. He was recovered from the rubble by Lady Shazam, who informed him about her brother's anger being out of control and being directed at the various gods of the universe.[4]
