Typhon was the last of the Titans who opposed Zeus' rule over Mount Olympus. Typhon lost the final battle against Zeus was banished from Olympus and swore vengeance. The mortals would know about this battle as a myth but mistakenly they thought that Typhon had one hundred draconian heads.
In the 20th century, Typhon returned to Olympus and destroyed the Temple of the Promethean Flame, which caused all Olympians to be transported to the Land of Shades. He was confronted and defeated by Hercules and the Avengers. The Olympians were restored and Zeus banished Typhon to eternal condemnation in Hades.

During that time, she led US business corporation known as the Olympus Group with Typhon serving as her loyal bodyguard and sexual lover under control by Pluto. Ultimately, her ambition grew to the point that she tried to recreate the a new universe and destroy the old one with the Continuum, but while resurrected as a child, Zeus convinced her to give up such insanity. Unfortunately, Typhon managed to free himself from her control and betrayed her to fulfill his purpose to slay all of the Gods of Olympus, slaying both her and Zeus while protected by the Aegis breastplate.
