I might not know a Space Marine from an exploding squig, but I know a true action hero when I ram his weapon down the throats of a couple thousand Orks.

Let's get to know Captain Titus, the warrior supreme of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

You've seen enough of Captain Titus to know that he's a fearless and powerful combatant, but did you know he's also a wise teacher? A boon companion? A potentially tender lover?

Okay, maybe not a tender lover. He is encased in metal and genetically enhanced to be much larger than average, but I've a feeling once you get past that bulletproof exterior you'll find something special inside this tin can of a man.

Actually, once you get past that bulletproof exterior you've got a dead Space Marine. Only the very worst attempts to humanize a military killing machine result in a pile of guts once held together by powered armor.

For now we'll leave his heart (or hearts) a mystery. It's less messy that way. Just sit back, relax, and bask in his titular glory.
