*** ORIGIN ***
Typhon is a monstrous Titan offspring of Gaea and Tartarus. Though he often appears as a human-looking giant, in his true form he has multiple snake-like tentacles in place of his human arms and legs. which can provide as an advantage in combat. Ever since his defeat at the hands of Zeus which took place several Millenia ago his hatred of Zeus and Olympians in general festered and grew while he was imprisoned in the harshest section of Hades, Tartarus.

Typhon is the father of the Chimera, Orthrus, the Sphinx, the Nemean Lion, Cerberus, Ladon and the Lernaean Hydra.

*** IN MARVEL ***
After being defeated by Zeus eons ago, Typhon eventually escaped his prison and sought revenge against Zeus and the Olympians. Finally was defeated by the Hercules, son of Zeus, and his teammates the Avengers and was subsequently returned to his imprisonment in Tartarus.
