WTF are you talking about? Agents of Atlas? Charles Atlas? Atlas from the Thunderbolts? Be more specific since none of your poll choices make a lick of sense.

I'm referring to Atlas from Bioshock. I thought the first two choices would've made it clear for those in the know. :p

Are the Titans considered Gods?

The Greek God?
Atlas was a titan, not a god. I am so very disappointed in you.

Aren't titan's considered the elder gods whom the the younger gods (the Olympians) overthrew? Saying Atlas isn't a god, he's a Titans seems as faulty as saying Zeus isn't a god, he's an Olympian.

Maybe he should've started a thread asking "What is Atlas?" :)

Probably should have made it clearer in your opening post. I don't play Bioshock (Need to though).

Kinda sorta, in that both titans and Greek gods are powerful immortals, but there is a distinction. The titans birthed the gods and then the gods overthrew the titans. Atlas was sentenced by the gods to hold the heavens aloft on his shoulders for all eternity. What was holding the heavens up before Atlas I'm not sure.

A giant pole? Nah, I can't remember how the legend goes but I think it was there were no heavens until the gods helped make them.

Or maybe they just wanted to keep him out of the way so they gave him a real useless job they could have solved with magic, then they were just too busy messing with the mortals and they forgot about him.
