HistoryEdit

Tyrannus was born in Rome. He was exiled from Camelot by Merlin during the times of King Arthur. At that point, Subterranea became his home,[2] which inevitably created friction between him and Mole Man. In Subterranea, Romulus came upon a stockpile of Deviant technology, which he used to attack the surface world. On one such attack, he discovered the fountain of youth[2], and on another, he became lovers with Kala. Having failed to conquer the surface world with force and tech, several times, Romulus decided to try another approach. It was then that he organized They Who Wield Power and merged with the Cobalt Flame of Flame in El Dorado. Romulus later had more amazing adventures, including being shot into space, controlling a form of the Abomination, attempting to help Set conquer the Earth, and taking possession of Hulk (as well as trying to take his abilities).

Tyrannus was eventually overthrown by his own people, the Tyrannoids, who turned Romulus into a tyrannoid for abusing them over the years, and threw him in their jail.
