Titania

(ti-tah -nee-ă) The largest satellite of Uranus, discovered in 1787 by William Herschel. Photographed by Voyager 2 in 1986, its icy surface shows many small craters, a few large impact basins, such as Gertrude, which is more than 200 km in diameter, and an extensive network of faults up to 5 km deep, such as the Messina Chasma, which runs up to 1500 km. See also Uranus' satellites; Table 2, backmatter.

Titania

(pop culture)
The Marvel super-criminal Titania, otherwise known as wife of the villain the Absorbing Man, first burst onto the pages of Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #3 (1984) in a story written by Jim Shooter and penciled by Mike Zeck. Readers are told very little about the life of Mary “Skeeter” MacPherran before the extra-dimensional Beyonder transported her suburb of Denver through space to become part of an artificial “heroes-versus-villains” Battleworld he was constructing (as part of the first Secret War storyline, 1984–1985). The supervillain Dr. Doom was fervently building up his arsenal of supervillains to do battle against Battleworld's heroes, and contacted MacPherran and offered her superhuman powers. Doom subjected MacPherran to radiation treatments, augmenting her petite body by several hundred pounds of muscle and giving her superhuman strength and near-invulnerable skin that also gives her resilience to heat, intense cold, and disease. MacPherran designed a costume for herself and took the name Titania, becoming a highly effective fighter on Doom's team. (She is not to be confused with the professional-wrester-turned-professional- criminal Davida DeVito, sometimes referred to as Titania I, who was murdered by the vigilante Scourge.) Titania and ten of her fellow criminals escaped the planet of the Beyonder's world when the Molecule Man returned the Denver suburb to Earth. During the first Secret War Titania became attracted to her teammate, “Crusher” Creel, the Absorbing Man, and they became a couple after they returned home. Titania continued to engage in various criminal activities, most often with the Absorbing Man, although the two often ran afoul of one superhero or another, such as Spider-Man and the Avengers. Titania also had a personal feud with her archenemy, the She-Hulk. Titania and the Absorbing Man have both served in the Masters of Evil, and Titania briefly belonged to the Frightful Four. Titania and the Absorbing Man finally got married (inviting the grimace-worthy pun from She-Hulk about “Absorbine Jr.” being the ideal name for their child) in a ceremony attended by many of their supervillain colleagues. Later, though, Titania contracted cancer. Their old enemy Thor saved Titania's life by arranging for medical help, and Creel publicly thanked his former foe. Mr. and Mrs. Creel entertained a life of lawfulness, but ultimately returned to their villainous ways.

a satellite of the plant Uranus. Titania has a diameter of about 1,800 km and is at a mean distance of approximately 439,000 km from the center of Uranus. It was discovered in 1787 by W. Herschel. Titania’s orbital plane is nearly perpendicular to that of Uranus. (SeeSATELLITE.)
