  • This is for the post-mortem version of Menœtius, as he exists in Hades.
  • There’s very little material, so much of the entry is speculative. Furthermore I haven’t studied the Titans in the Marvel Universe, so there might be boilerplate Titanic powers he’s missing.

Background

  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: Iapetus (deceased, father), Clymene (mother, deceased), Atlas (brother), Prometheus and Epimetheus (brothers), the Twelve Titans (uncles and aunts), etc. etc. etc.
  • Group Affiliation: None
  • Base Of Operations: Tartarus
  • Height: About six meters Weight: Unknown
  • Eyes: Orange sparks over a black background Hair: Orange, electrified


Powers and Abilities

While dead, the Titan is still very tall and strong. Furthermore he’s now suffused with lightning.


History

Menœtius is the son of two of the Twelve Titans of Ancient Greek mythology. His name can be loosely translated as “doomed power”. Though not having a god-like role like the Twelve Titans, he was considered a minor god of violence and recklessness.

Menoetius chasing the Angel

This Titanson was a glorious but reckless and overbearing warrior, who behaved insolently toward Zeus. He was predictably smitten by a lightning bolt and sent to Tartarus for an eternity among the fields of the reviled dead.

Menœtius was once summoned from the netherworld by the Huntsman of Zeus to fight super-heroes, the Champions. The undead giant was taken down by the Black Widow — as he was standing in half-melted ice, she shot a metallic Widow’s line anchored to a flagpole at him, shorting him out.

He presumably returned to Erebos.
