* 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.

''Aztek: The Ultimate Man'' lasted only ten issues before being wiped out in 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.

** Likewise, the concept of the Joker's personality constantly reinventing itself is something Morrison has frequently used, especially during his run on ''[[GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman]]''.
