Cover Issue #1:
Aztek was a superhero in the DC Universe. He was created by Grant Morrison and Mark Millar.
Aztek's series was critically acclaimed, but only lasted ten issues. He also appeared in
several issues of JLA also written by Morrison. In 2004, he became a recurring minor
supporting character on the Justice League Unlimited animated series.
A young man named Uno was raised by the Q Society, a secret organization, to be the champion
of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl to battle their enemy, the Aztec god Tezcatlipoca. He was at
the peak of human abilities both physically and mentally. He was given a magical suit of
armor that bestows super strength, super speed, super hearing, telescopic vision, x-ray vision,
infrared vision, invisibility and flight upon the wearer. His base of operations was the city
of Vanity, a strange town that had bizarre architecture, and the highest suicide rate in the
DC Universe version of the United States.
Aztek later became a member of the Justice League, but felt he had to resign when it was
revealed that one of the mysterious benefactors of the Q Society was supervillain Lex Luthor.
He was later blinded helping the League save the Earth in a battle against the planet-destroying
machine Mageddon, which, apparently, was the 'Tezcatlipoca' that the cult was referring to
all along. Finally he sacrificed himself to allow Superman the chance to destroy
Mageddon/Tezcatlipoca, during the World War III saga, which ended Grant Morrison's run on JLA.
