Hyperion is one of the Titans, an extra-dimensional race of beings once worshipped as gods by the people of Ancient Greece and whose descendants are the Olympians.
Hyperion somehow became aware that Theia was not by his side in Tartarus and freed himself. In doing so, he freed the other Titans and they tried to retake Olympus but were defeated by the Olympian gods and their allies in the team of costumed adventurers known as the Teen Titans. They later helped the titans to free the Amazons and rallied for the Olympians against Thia and her progeny. Hyperion himself confronted Thia, conjuring a funeral pyre to destroy them both in order to defeat his lover.
