Default DC's Giant Characters

Ok, here's an off-the-wall question: What DC characters were either giants or had the super ability of Super-Growth? Can be past, present or future, and can be a power only acquired for a short time. Can you help me think of some? Here's the list I have off the top of my head:

Giganta
Atom Smasher
Elasti-Girl
Colossal Boy (Wasn't there a Colossal Girl at one point?)
Atom (from his Teen Titans days)
Blackbriar Thorn
Spectre
Troia (from the Total Chaos storyline)
Trigon
Brother Power
Devilance
Couldnt Shrinking Violet grow when she was known as Leviathan?

Any others?

A lot of the Vertigo-ish magical characters seem to get giant from time to time. Like, I know that Swamp Thing has been giant. And all of the Endless, obviously. And a bunch of those myth-type gods. Y'know...Zeus and so on.


Also? Titano. Nowhere did I see it specified that it had to be a giant human.

Yet, despite Superman's warning, there he was in Countdown, all giant and green again and fighting Darkseid. Will he never learn?

Black Alice. Y'know, when she channels some growing-person's power. She copied Giganta's power a couple months ago, for example. Punched her way into a prison. Then Count Vertigo made her fall down. Not her proudest moment.

She could be on the tiny-people list, too, but I don't want to be repetitive.

Monster Girl could by the end of Young Heroes in Love change her size at a whim to grow small and presumably large as well, she may have done that as well but I couldn't say for sure.

Tribulus is certainly large, but I don't think he has the ability to change in size or anything that would make him a giant.
