"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 Old Gods, Zeus. They are cousins to the Atlanteans, the sea-dwelling inhabitants of Atlantis, and some of them possess a unique genetic trait that allows a small number of them to become the far more powerful metahumans.


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. Human biology is considered to be fairly average for galactic standards. Humans however do carry the genetic potential to become one of the most powerful races in the universe, however human physiology is years away from this level of power.

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 Old 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 Old 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.

  • Metahumans, a subspecies of Human, are an advanced subclass of humanity, often prone to prejudice due to their differences, such as Waylan Jones/Killer Croc.
