"Men are still good; we fight, we kill, we betray one another - but we can rebuild. We can do better. We will, we have to."
Bruce Wayne to Diana Prince about humankind[src]

Humans (also known as Terrans to the Ko'erst[1]) are the dominant species that inhabit the planet Earth. They were created over 200 millennia before modern times by the King of the Olympian Gods, Zeus. They are cousin to the Atlanteans, the sea-dwelling inhabitants of Atlantis, as well as possess a unique genetic trait that allows a number of them to become powerful individuals.


Human beings are of the Primate order in the family Hominidae, and the only extant species of the genus Homo. Humans are distinguished from other primates by their bipedal locomotion, and especially by their relatively larger brain with its particularly well developed neocortex, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, and culture through social learning.

Humans use tools to a much higher degree than any other animal of Earth (due to Zeus having created them in the image of the Olympian Gods themselves), and are the only extant species known to build fires and cook their food, as well as the only known species to clothe themselves and create and use numerous other technologies and arts. The scientific study of humans is the discipline of anthropology. Hence, even Kryptonian alien Jor-El saw humans as the perfect race for his son Kal-El to live among and protect (notably considering them more open-minded than Kryptonians), following the destruction of Krypton.



Mankind Corrupted

Humanity after their corruption by Ares.

Many millennia ago, Zeus, King of the Olympian Gods, created humanity, making them in the gods' likeness, and imbuing them with their virtues. As Zeus' son Ares started corrupting humanity with war, Zeus created a new race - the Amazons, who were intended to protect humanity from Ares' influence, while spreading love and compassion.

First Invasion of Earth

Roughly 30 millennia before the Black Zero Event, humans joined with the Amazons and Atlanteans in fighting off an invasion of Earth by Steppenwolf and his massive Parademon army. Before being forced to depart, Steppenwolf left behind three Mother Boxes, and each of the three factions of the army that helped save Earth would be given one of them.

"You Are Not Alone"

"My name is General Zod. I come from a world far from yours; I have journeyed across an ocean of stars to reach you. For some time, your world has sheltered one of my citizens. I request that you return this individual to my custody. For reasons unknown, he has chosen to keep his existence a secret from you. He will have made efforts to blend in: he will look like you, but he is not one of you. To those of you who may know of his current location: the fate of your planet rests in your hands. To Kal-El, I say this: surrender within 24 hours, or watch this world suffer the consequences..."

Notable Humans



  • Metahumans, a subspecies of Human, are similar to the concept of Mutants from Marvel Comics, as tgey are an advanced subclass of humans, often prone to prejudice due to their differences, such as Waylan Jones/Killer Croc.
