Tim Teslow (died May 17, 2020), nicknamed "The Titan", was a former football player tight end for the Gotham Goliaths, turned criminal.
Tim Teslow was born and raised in Gotham alongside his younger brother, Apollo, in a very poor neighborhood, where he used to accompany the kids to the school bus to make sure they were safe. At college, both he and his brother became football champions and afterward started to play as professionals for the Gotham Goliaths, where Tim was nicknamed "The Titan" and rewarded as the team's best tight end of all time.
However, according to Apollo, his will to win turned him into a monster, thus he began taking massive doses of steroids becoming amazingly brutal also, his dorsal posterior insular was seriously damaged by years of head traumas, thus making him insensitive to pain. The team's staff worked to cover it up and falsified his CTs in order to allow him to keep play until one night, during a game, after a referee called him back for an action, The Titan killed him by breaking his neck in front of the whole stadium.
Escaping from Arkham
After escaping from Arkham due to a riot caused by Alice, Tim boarded a train heading to Central Gotham and beheaded the leader of the medical tests performed on the players who was responsible for covering up his medical condition. Then he was approached by Jacob Kane who tried to stop him but was overpowered and disarmed by the Titan; however, before he could kill him, Kate Kane intervened and fought him, getting defeated as well. The Titan however decided to take advantage of this to escape.
The following day, The Titan approached his brother at the stadium while Apollo was training and, despite Batwoman's attempt to stop him, managed to defeat her, crippling Apollo by stabbing his spine with a machete.
The following night, Batwoman and the Crows lure him out of hiding at the Gotham City Arena using his last target, Coach Kurt Donahue as bait; however, Batwoman fought him in the middle of the stadium, trying to reason with him and telling him she knew that it wasn't the real him. The Titan admitted he didn't want to be that way, but just as Kate managed to get through to him, the Crows gunned him down.
According to Tim's brother, Apollo Teslow, he was once a kind individual who would walk the local children to make sure they got there safely. Many years later, due to steroids and head trauma from playing football, he snapped.
