Origin

Atlas was one of the Titans, a race of primordial gods who ruled the cosmos before being overthrown by the Olympian gods led by Zeus. The Titans waged war against the Olympians for ten years before eventually being conquered by the younger gods. While most of his fellow Titans were imprisoned deep beneath the earth in the infernal realm of Tartarus, Atlas was instead condemned by Zeus to carry the heavens upon his shoulders for all eternity.
