Antaeus the giant terrorized Greece in ancient times. Drawing his strength from the ground, he challenged and slew many warriors, using their skulls to build a temple to his father. He was defeated by Hercules when the demigod realized his weakness and lifting Antaeus off the ground, depriving him of his strength.[1]

Antaeus was defeated by Hercules again in a similar match, when 1940s time traveler Tommy Tyme encounter the giant.[2]
