Affiliations Titans of Myth

Cronus, son of Gaea and Uranus, is one of the original Titans of Myth. He killed his father at the request of his mother after Uranus cast his other children out to Tartarus for being too ugly.

Fearing a similar fate, Cronus devoured his progeny birthed by his sister-wife Rhea. In secret, Rhea swept one child away, Zeus, who grew too manhood in seclusion. In accordance with a prophecy that would see the death of Cronus at the hands of his own offspring, Zeus sent his wife Metis to seduce his father. She forced Cronus to vomit up two of his sons, Hades and Poseidon, and together they defeated Cronus.

Long thought dead, Cronus awoke from the tremors of a shaking reality, and rebirthed himself on Earth. Seeking revenge against Zeus and the gods, Cronus rescued his brothers Titan and Slaughter from Tartarus, and regurgitated his own children, Harrier, Disdain, Arch, and Oblivion. He used this army to bestow gifts on a child he sculpted from the same Themysciran clay that forged Wonder Woman, thus creating Devastation. (Wonder Woman Secret Files & Origins #2)
