The cyborg known as Amazo was created by Doctor Anthony Ivo as an experiment in power replication, well before any "Justice League" was formed.

Origins

Being housed in the Red Room, the Amazo robot lay in shambles, its synthetic skin not even applied correctly.[1]

Some time later, its creator Doctor Ivo would, himself, become an enemy of the Justice League and used his fully functioning Amazo robot to fight the heroes. Amazo had been perfected to replicate any super powers it saw, but was defeated by the Justice League.[2] Seeing this monster's power, Lex Luthor had LexCorp begin work on what he would call an Amazo Virus, a disease that would give normal humans super powers like Ivo's android.[3]

At one point, Amazo was sent to infiltrate the Justice League Watchtower while only Batman was on duty, leading to a fight between the android with the powers of the League and the hero with no powers at all. Despite the odds, Batman repelled Amazo and teleported all of his pieces around the world.[4]

Forever Evil

When the Crime Syndicate invaded Earth and seemingly killed the Justice League, Doctor Ivo and his reassembled Amazo android joined the Secret Society of Super-Villains and wrecked havoc around the world with no heroes to stop them.[5]

In a matter of days, the Justice League defeated the Crime Syndicate and returned to power, and Amazo's whereabouts have been left a mystery ever since.

The Amazo Virus

Despite this, Amazo's name remained in the news when the Amazo Virus that Lex Luthor had been working on was accidentally released on Metropolis, causing a widespread quarantine on the city. The first patient, Armen Ikarus eventually lost his mind to the virus and declared himself the new Amazo.[6]

Plastic Man

At some point Amazo joined the Cabal and had a disagreement in which he almost strangled Doctor Psycho, Hugo Strange convinced him to desist and Amazo apologized.[7] Plastic Man infiltrated their base and forced Cizko to control Queen Bee and attack Amazo, who despite suffering heavy damages managed to knock out the mind-controlled teammate and attacked Plastic Man, only to accidentally charge into Per Degaton. Plastic Man then stole Queen Bee's stinger and held Amazo at gunpoint and forced the Cabal to stay away from his loved ones.[8]

Powers

  • Android Body: Amazo is an incredibly advanced android covered with an extremely realistic human skin.
    • Power Replication: Amazo's main power is to replicate the superhuman abilities of any metahuman he encountered, doing so through an artificial enzyme present in his body.[2] He also appears to retain a template with the powers of multiple members of the Justice League.[4]
      • Superhuman Durability: As an android Amazo has great resistance to damage. He could shrug off a blast of lightning from Weather Wizard without much damage but one of Gorilla Grodd's punches was able to make him bleed.[9] Amazo can also keep fighting even after having a hole blasted in his torso.[8]
      • Superhuman Strength: As an android Amazo is naturally stronger than most humanoids. He could easily overpower Batman with a backhand slap and smash computers to pieces with his hands[4] and can hit people with enough force to easily knock them out.[8]
      • Superhuman Speed: Amazo can move and react at great speeds.[4]
      • Heat Vision: Amazo can emit powerful concentrated beams of heat from his eyes.[4]
      • Sound Manipulation: Amazo can imitate other people's voices. He once imitated the voice of Martian Manhunter to use the Watchtower's computer.[4]
      • Enhanced Senses: Amazo has superhuman senses.[4]
        • Enhanced Hearing: Amazo's CPU can filter background noises.[4]
        • Enhanced Vision: Amazo can see people bioelectric frequencies and thermal signatures. He also has X-Ray vision, which functions by scanning a layer at time and comparing the result to his search parameters before switching to the next layer.[4]
      • Flight: Amazo has the ability to levitate himself and move through the air at great speed.[4]

Weaknesses

  • Rage: While Amazo has incredible power he is not particularly intelligent and can easily succumb to his rage, making dumb mistakes in battle that caused him victory multiple times.[4][8]


  • As an android Amazo has no nipples and belly button.
