Horus is the son of Osiris and Isis, and great-great-grandson of Ra.

While Horus is known for avenging his father's murder by Set, at some point in history, Set and Horus made a truce.

The truce depended on Set staying out of human affairs, which was broken when Set found the Helmet of Fate and was going to use it to put humanity through pain and misery for a thousand years. Thanks to Thoth and the new Ibis the Invincible, Horus could be summoned and battled Set until the Helmet was put elsewhere. Horus's sword is said to be the brightest ray of the sun.

Horus, as "Heru", provided Black Adam and his former sidekick Osiris their powers of speed and flight.




  • Power Loss: Without followers, Horus will gradually lose his powers and fade away.[1]

  • In the first appearance of Hawkman, his enemy Hath-Set worshiped a statue of a god named Anubis, but it had a hawk for a head instead of a jackal (Hawkman even dons a hawk-shaped headpiece to appear as this "Hawk-God" Anubis). In Egyptian mythology, the hawk-headed god was Horus; it can be explain that the writer had a lack of knowledge of this or an error of the artist. If the god was really Horus, then his first appearance is in Flash Comics #1.
  • This character is an adaptation of Horus, a character in traditional stories. These include, but may not be limited to religious texts, myth, and/or folk lore. More information on the original can be found at Wikipedia.org.
