History

In 1655, Earth astronomer Christiaan Huygens discovered the largest moon of the planet, Saturn. Unofficially, the satellite became known as Saturni Luna until 1847 when English astronomer and mathematician, John Herschel renamed the moon, Titan.

Earth-Two

Titan and the other bodies orbiting Saturn were the base of the Empire of Saturn, a cruel society of telepathic slavers that tried to invade the earth shortly after WWII. Their scouts were repelled by Wonder Woman and the Holliday Girls. After multiple clashes Wonder Woman fought her way into the Emperor's throne room and forced him to sign a treaty ending the conflict and returning those humans that had been abducted and enslaved.[1] The incursions continued, but with far fewer numbers as the Emperor tried to ensure he could not be tied to them while trying to force the people of earth to be the first to publicly break the treaty.[2][3][4][5]

Earth-One

At some point in the late 20th century, the ruling council of Titan looked upon Earth as a possible target of conquest. They sent a young scout named Kral to Earth to learn about it's culture. Kral landed in Smallville and met the teenage hero Superboy. He pretended to be Superboy's friend, and lured him back to Titan so that he could be imprisoned with Kryptonite. Superboy demonstrated his powers to the Titanian ruling council. Suspecting treachery, Superboy claimed that everyone on Earth had powers just like his. The Titanians decided to cancel their invasion plans. [6]

New Earth & Prime Earth

Later, the alien race known as the Dominators began experimenting with humanoid beings in the hopes of genetically enhancing them with various super-powers. Their experiments eventually culminated in a galactic Invasion of the planet, Earth. A Daxamite named Lar Gand became the custodian of these metahuman experiments and used them to seed various planets and moons throughout the galaxy.[7] It is believed by many that Titan was one of the seed colonies established by Lar Gand. These colonists eventually developed acute psionic talents, including telepathy and mental manipulation.

By the 30th century, they had established what is reputed to be the most efficient system of democratic government in the solar system. A large portion of this is due to the fact that the Titans' natural affinity towards telepathy make corruption in government a virtual impossibility.

Titanians have a reputation for bad cooking.[8]

Notes

  • Early inhabitants of Titan possessed a variety of super-powers including heat generation, cold generation and telepathy. By the 30th century, they had lost their heat and cold powers, maintaining only their telepathy.
