Titán (II). Titán (II) was created by the Spanish creators Jose Canellas Casals (Amiel, Armando, Jaime Bazán, Black (III), Carlos and Marcos Bon, Bronkos, CesarJuditThalma Klan, Mario, Nick, Red Circle, Rin-Tin-Tin (I), Sam, Sankro, Spaceman (II), Toby, Capitán Velez, Mack Wan, Fernando Zabal, ZimbraKhun Zivan) and Marc Farell (Corsair X, Isaak & Benjamin, Margaret, Pablo & Sidney, Red Circle, Sam, Toby, Mack Wan, Khun Zivan) and appeared in El Titán de los Mares #1-40 (1935).

Titán (II) is a vehicle modeled on Jules Verne’s Nautilus, but the Titán can fly, can drive overland, can navigate the seas, and can bore through the earth. The Titán is captained by Bruce, the 14-year-old son of the Titán’s inventor. Together with six of his friends Bruce wages war around the globe against the megalomaniacal pirate Krowek, the “Emperor of the Seas,” who was responsible for killing Bruce’s father. Krowek has hundreds of men and a fleet of submarines on his side; Bruce has his father’s SCIENCE! inventions: bulletproof suits, death-rays, and electrical stun batons. During the conflict Bruce discovers a castle filled with ghosts, axe-wielding decapitating cyclopses, and a two-headed giant imprisoned in an igloo in Greenland.

The Titán appears in stories with titles like “A Hand-to-Hand Melee, “An Ocean Without Water,” and “The Canal of Death.”
