Hypnox was born centuries before the human race during the Titan's rule. He was the firstborn child of the Titan Typhon and Echidna, the Mother of Monsters. Hypnox was the greatest warrior among the Titanspawn, and because of this, his father gave him the Sword of the Singing Winds, one of the Titan's greatest weapons.
However, this all changed when the Great War broke out. Hypnox was naturally chosen to lead the armies of Chronos against the Olympians. Hypnox fought like the monster he was, eventually standing against Zeus himself. It is said that Zeus was only able to win the battle by using Hypnox's sister (an unknown monster) as a shield, which broke him enough that Hades was able to put him in chains. Before he was thrown into Tartarus, the Firstborn of Typhon swore that Zeus would pay and that his kind would one day take back what was theirs.
Hypnox remained in the Underworld for countless millennia, chained in the pits of Tartarus, helpless as he watched his brothers and sisters enter the gates of Hades, slain by the mortal sons of Zeus and his kin. While most of the Titan's wills were broken long ago, this merely fueled Hypnox's desire for revenge against all of Olympus. Long after even mighty Chronos's spirit was broken, the First Warrior struggled against his chains, screaming for the blood of Olympus.
Hypnox got his chance to escape from Tartarus the day Hades lead an army of undead against the Freedom League. In the chaos of the invasion, Hypnox was able to trick a Cyclops into breaking his chains, freeing him from an eternity of torment. While Hades was fighting a war for Freedom City, Hypnox was fighting his way through the Hekatonkheires and other guardians of the Underworld. By the time Hades was returned to the Underworld, Hypnox had broken to the surface and was prepared to seek his vengeance.
However, Hypnox was to be denied his revenge. When he reached the summit of Mount Olympus, he saw that the gateway into the home of the gods was closed. The gods had sworn not to interfere with the affairs of man long before Hypnox had escaped from Tartarus, and now there was no way there. It was then that Hypnox decided that humanity would suffer in the place of the gods. If he destroyed enough of the humans Zeus had prized so much, the gods would have to break their oath and interfere with the affairs of Earth. And then Hypnox would show them pain....
Hypnox only cares for causing chaos in an attempt to draw the Olympians out so they can face his blade. He is driven by a desire for revenge that few mortals can even comprehend, a desire tempered by watching his brethren march through the gates of Hades, knowing that their only crime was being his brother. He is an unstoppable force of destruction, only agreeing to work with others if they promise him a way to Olympus. Even when Daedalus was forced to kill him, the beast was able to fight his way out of Tartarus again. The mythological prison of the Titans could no longer hold him.
Finally, Daedalus was able to send Hypnox into space with the other villains in an attempt to stop Star Khan. Hypnox had spent his entire existence facing the worst torments of Tartarus, so a great space war was nearly nothing to him. He now plans to return to Earth and destroy the heroes who tried to deny him retribution. Starting with the immortal Daedalus....Hypnox

Enemy-Daedalus: The immortal inventor Daedalus has proven quite a thorn in Hypnox's side since his escape from Tartarus. He hates the hero for serving the gods just as much as he hates the gods themselves.
Enemy-the Gods of Olympus: Hypnox is defined by his desire for vengence against the Olympians. To him, Zeus and his bretheren caused the slaughter of his entire family over the past eon. Now he is prepared to end all of them, slowly.
Hatred: Hypnox has no love for humanity, the lesser beings who took this Earth from the Titans. He sees them as vermin at best and the slayers of his kin at worst.
Prejudice: Hypnox is clearly monstrous in appearance and makes no attempt to hide his nature from the world.
Sacrificed for the Good of Humanity....and Lived: Hypnox has little qualms with bathing in the blood of the countless alien forces that the Star Khan led. However, he was angered by the fact that Earth's heroes expected him to die without taking the Gods of Olympus with him. Hypnox is now heading back to Earth, now ready to kill both it's heroes and it's gods.
Warrior's Code: Hypnox will always face his enemies head on, especially if he is facing the Olympians or their champions. He dislikes using poisons or the tools of an assassin and prefers to give his opponents a proper death by his sword.Languages
