The Pre-Crisis Titano first appeared in Superman #127 (February 1959). Originally named Toto, he was dubbed "one of the world's most intelligent apes". Rocketed into space, he and his ship were bombarded with radiation, which changed him into a giant ape with incredible strength and the ability to emit beams of Kryptonite radiation from his eyes. This made the ape a difficult menace for Superman to face. Last night Titano wrecked our city and Superman got hit with Real MVP Kriptonite. The City Knew Superman was doomed and was happy to have Superman's friend "Steel" come from the mile High place to help him save this city!
Melo as "STEEL"
