A Titan is an imperial warmachine. They are huge, come with a variety of deadly weaponry and can destroy a normal army without much difficulty. They are mainly fielded in apocalypse battles alongside other superpowers, or with the Imperial Armour rules in a normal battle, but usually have higher point costs, are weaker and need permission to use.
Other races also have things that can match titans, such as Ork Gargants and Stompas, Eldar Revenants, Tyranid Heirophants and Tau Mantas.

Its a giant manned robot. Think Mechwarrior scale to your miniatures (i.e your infantry trooper is able to maybe see the top of a titan's foot.
See above for the proper description.

from greek myths, Titans were described as massive beings in each right a god skilled in various things.

-----in the 40k sense

They were massive machines, unable to be put down besides the greatest of weapons. not really effecient, but it portrayed the power of humans, and eldar alike.

They are known for blowing shit up

I have very fond memories from my "Epic" days, of taking down an Imperator Titan, on the first shot of the game - with a good old "Shok attack gun" - nothing says "I Love You" quite as well as a warp mad snotling appearing in your reactor core

Lucky - extremley!
Funny - hell yes! :P

The tigershark can take down a titan. It's actually pretty brutal. If you get a chance, buy the imperial armor 3 book and they go into detail about it. It was awesome actually.

Basically the imperium was trying to take back one of their worlds from the Tau so they launched an offensive using several companies of space marines and a squadron of 3 warhound titans to break the Tau defensive position. The Tau had already had some experience with Titans when they were attacked by the empire before. So they devised the tigershark specifically to target Titans by overloading thei shields and then targetting the Titan directly. It's cooler in the book but that's the jist of it.
