Powers/Abilities: Titanis is a member of the Eternals race, and possesses all of her people's natural abilities, including the power to manipulate cosmic energy to rearrange molecules, fly, and emit blasts of cosmic energy. She also possesses an unknown degree of superhuman strength, endurance and durability, and is virtually immortal.

History: (Marvel Super-Hero Contest of Champions#1)- Titanis was in the Andes with Ajak, Ikaris and Sersi when they were all teleported off-planet by the Grandmaster, so that he and Death could choose from the ranks of Earth's heroes to find champions in a game for the life of the Collector. Titanis was not among those chosen.

(Marvel Super Hero Contest of Champions#2-3 (BTS))- Titanis observed with the other heroes as the Grandmaster won his contest with Death, only to die himself in order to restore the Collector to life.

Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Bill Mantlo, Steven Grant, John Romita, Jr. and Pablo Marcos.

Titanis was named in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #4, which identifies her as a "gladiator."

Titanis' name is likely derived from Titanos, the original home of the Eternals. Possibly she was born after the city's destruction and given the name as a reminder?

The Eternals were presumably in the Andes to visit the City of the Space Gods for some reason (visiting Ajak?).
