"Titan was like most planets; too many mouths, not enough to go around. And when we faced extinction, I offered a solution."
Thanos and Doctor Strange[src]

The Titans[1] were a race of beings from the planet Titan who were all but one destroyed by a catastrophic event.

The Titans are now an extinct species, as all Titans except Thanos died when overpopulation plagued Titan. The last Titan, Thanos ended up perishing without biological descendence after Iron Man snapped his fingers in 2023 to kill him and his forces.


Thanos was born on Titan, and due to his severe deformities, was considered an anomaly by the Titan society and grew up as an outcast. Despite so, Thanos loved his people nonetheless.

Due to overpopulation, the planet began to run out of resources. Thanos offered a solution, to randomly kill off half of the planet's inhabitants so that the other half could truly live without having to fight each other. The Titans saw his solution to be madness and refused to let Thanos intervene. This led to Titan eventually being devastated when the people finally snapped and turned on each other for survival, and left mostly uninhabitable. The Titans themselves went nearly extinct after the conflict.[1]

Thanos began to believe that other planets would suffer the same fate, causing him to become obsessed with "saving" the universe, by killing half of each planet's inhabitants.[2]


Titans are much larger than humans, and their physical constitution is strong enough to wield the Infinity Stones without strain and easily overpower and severely injure beings as strong as Vision, Hulk, and Thor, as displayed by Thanos. Titans, despite their large size, possess incredible superhuman speed and reflexes that allows them to easily outmaneuver and overwhelm not only other beings of similar sizes, such as Hulk but also even smaller and highly agile individuals as well, such as Loki, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, and Iron Man in his Mark L Armor. They are also able to react swiftly to high-speed projectiles.

They are invulnerable to many forms of damage, as even Gamora has stated that killing Thanos may not be possible, and the only known weapon with the power to kill Thanos was Stormbreaker, the most powerful weapon forged from Uru, and only if the axe was powered to the maximum and the attack was lethal.

Known Titans


  • In the comics, the Titanians were an offshoot of the Eternals that inhabited the Saturn moon of Titan. They were mostly exterminated at the hands of Thanos.
