Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Zeus) accuses defendants (the Titans) of war crimes. The accusation claims that Atlas and the other Titans, um, fought back when he led the Olympians in rebellion against the old Titanic regime.

Case Status: Case closed. Zeus and the Olympians won, so he got to be judge and jury. The new king of the gods sentenced Kronos and most of the other Titans to imprisonment in the black pit of Tartarus. Atlas, however, was condemned to forever hold up the sky.
