Aztek was a Creator/DCComics superhero, who appeared in ''Aztek: The Ultimate Man'' and for a while was a member of the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica.

Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica.



''Aztek: The Ultimate Man'' lasted only ten issues before being wiped out in UsefulNotes/TheGreatComicsCrashOf1996, but by then Aztek had already been established as a serious enough player to be invited into the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, and his story continued in the JLA's own series (which, not entirely coincidentally, was being written at the time by Aztek's co-creator Grant Morrison). In the pages of ''Justice League of America'', Morrison finished out the string-pulling subplot, and ultimately had Aztek, the JLA, and every other superpowered person on Earth unite against a world-threatening menace which was identified as the fulfillment of the Tezcatlipoca prophecy.

* ImpliedLoveInterest[=/=]TheNotLoveInterest: Julia Frostick, the main female character, fits the role that would normally be the love interest, but already has a boyfriend and isn't interested in ditching him for Uno. 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.
