Superman and a bunch of apes standing next to ruins of the Incas.[1]

The Incas were a civilization that lived in South America before the European colonial era. They were clever and resourceful, and they were one of the most remarkable engineers and architects in the ancient world. Their civilization began around the 12th century, and by the 17th century, the civilization was wiped out.

  • Contrary to popular belief, in real life, the Incas did not refer to themselves as Incas, that title was reserved for nobility. Instead, they referred to their country as the Tawantinsuyu, which roughly translates to "Realm of Four Quarters", symbolizing how the empire stretched from the coastline, mountains, jungles and deserts of western South America.
