Real Name: Curtis Falconer
Search for 'Aztek' on Amazon

One of the most powerful heroes of his time, Aztek was at the peak of physical and mental perfection. He wore an ancient helmet and armor (powered by a "4-dimensional mirror"), from which he derived flight, superhuman physical abilities, infrared and X-Ray vision, invisibility, intangibility, bodyheat camouflage, entrapment nets, plasma beams and density manipulation.

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.

A younger African-American female Aztek was seen in Grant Morrison's run on JLA during "The Rock of Ages" storyline in which the JLA traveled to an alternate future overrun by Darkseid. She had the same abilities and her existence may imply that the Q Society is not defunct despite the death of the original. However, it could also be concluded that in the time of "Rock of Ages", Mageddon had simply not yet appeared, and therefore another Aztek was needed.
