One of the Elder Gods.[1]

The Elder Gods were an ancient and incredibly powerful alien race that claimed to be, and were thought to be gods.



History unknown.

Earth 5C10L1

Ipsissimus was the lord of the Elder Gods during the time of the War in Heaven. He was defeated by Etrigan, who was then given the sacred duty of giving guidance to Adam, the first man.[2]

Starro claimed he was one of them when Oliver Queen was stranded on Starfish Island. He even told him that the Elder Gods were older than the Old Gods.[3]

Known Elder Gods

  • Ipsissimus: Ipsissimus, just like his followers, was a large dark purple multi-tentacled monster. He was vastly powerful, but not enough, as he was taken out by Etrigan. He had many followers assisting him during the War in Heaven, all of them resembling him and clearly of the same species.
  • Starro: Starro resembled a giant starfish. Despite the fact that he referred to himself as an Elder God, this seems questionable, as he didn't look anything like Ipsissimus or any of his followers. It's more likely that he is a different species, or that "Elder Gods" are not strictly a species, but rather a group of people that came together as common deities, regardless of what their species was.
