The series sets up a couple of ShipTease moments only to immediately subvert them.

* NightmareFace: Heatsnap (they were once two people, Heatstroke and Coldsnap)
* NinetiesAntihero: Parodied with Bloodtype, deconstructed with Death-Doll.
* NoSocialSkills: Aztek, who up to the start of the series has spent pretty much his entire life in the Q Society's secret lair. In one issue, it has to be explained to him that a restaurant menu is a set of options, not a description of the entire meal.

* MythologyGag: The seventh issue reveals that the Joker was using the Burroughs cut-up technique to commit crimes by flinging around words cut out of a magazine and committing crimes depending on what the words spell. Morrison had used the Burroughs technique in his first two ''DoomPatrol'' arcs.

He was created by Creator/GrantMorrison and Creator/MarkMillar, and debuted in 1996, at the tail end of TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks -- against which he stands as a reaction. Aztek is TheCape: brightly dressed, noble to a fault, the kind of superhero who will happily take the time to search for a lost pet or fly halfway across the country to persuade a sick child's favourite celebrity to come and visit.[[note]]Actual examples from the series. --[[ClueFromEd Ed.]][[/note]] By way of contrast, ''Aztek: The Ultimate Man'' drops him into the kind of violent, crime-ridden urban setting one would expect to see a NinetiesAntihero striding through. (It does, in fact, have a NinetiesAntihero striding through it -- up until halfway through issue 1, when he gets blown up by one of his many enemies.) Much [[PlayingWithATrope trope-juggling]] ensues.

* {{Mayincatec}}: Aztek's backstory and costume design. During the conference where Aztek gets his name, one person points out that his costume resembles Incan, but everyone else decides on Aztek because Inca doesn't sound cool.
