Human beings, humans or man (Origin: 1590–1600; < L homō man; OL hemō earthly being, also Homo sapiens — Latin: "wise human" or "knowing human"), are bipedal primates in the family Hominidae. DNA evidence indicates that modern humans originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago. Humans have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the forelimbs (arms) for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other species.

Humans are widespread in every continent except Antarctica, with a total population of 6.8 billion as of November 2009.[1]As of 2008, humans are listed as a species of least concern for extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Approximately 1.3 million are known as metahumans.

Humans are a race that evolved on the planet Earth. Although generally considered a backward and unintelligent species, certain humans began to play a prominent role in galactic affairs. The New Gods have long been fascinated with humans. Darkseid of Apokolips believes that humans have the Anti-Life Equation stored within their minds, while Highfather Izaya of New Genesis knows a prophecy that says Earth would see the rise of the Fifth World, and humans would play a vital part. The Guardian Ganthet claims that Earth is the most emotionally diverse and rich planet in the universe, most likely due to the humans.
