Titan was a massive green-skinned warrior who served as Darkseid's highest field commander in the first war between Apokolips and New Genesis.

After leading his army into an ambush which only he survived, Titan was locked in Darkseid's dungeon for half a century. Titan finally received a chance to redeem himself when Darkseid sent him to fight Orion and make him believe Darkseid was attacking elsewhere, so that Orion would leave his charge General Maxwell Torch unguarded.


  • New God Physiology: The beings of Apokolips call themselves Gods and live outside of normal time and space in a realm called the Fourth World. These New Gods have evolved due to their close proximity to the Source, a primeval energy, believed to be one of the ultimate foundations of the Universal Expression of Energy, along with their superior technology, into beings of genetic stability and evolutionary perfection. The denizens of New Genesis are immortal, stronger, faster, and smarter than Homo sapiens, despite their resemblance.



  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. 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 Gerry Conway's revival of New Gods Vol 1, Titan filled a similar role to that of Kalibak, who had been killed off at the end of Jack Kirby's run.
