Behind the Scenes
Universe Real

Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens) are usually regarded as the only extant members of the hominin clade (or human clade), a branch of the great apes. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion, manual dexterity and increased tool use, and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies.


The average human can lift about 150 pounds, though some people have been known to lift over 1000 pounds. Certain people can pull about 400,000 pounds[1]. Humans can run at speeds up to 27 miles per hour, though is has been theorized that humans are physically capable of running at a speed of 40 miles per hour. There are unconfirmed reports of certain humans having unique abilities. Humans can adapt to nearly any situation. When a human reproduces with another species (this can't be done in real life), any weaknesses inherited from the non-human parent are either dulled or eliminated entirely because of this adaptability.

Humans in Mythology

Humans are not only a huge part of mythology, they are usually the most important to the development of legends. Also their fear and curiosity about the unknown has been recorded in history. The time when mankind began to draw cave art and also the first written words, human beings started to create deities and also became major gods in some legends.
