Other Characteristics

  • Blindness: Aztek was briefly blinded before giving his life to stop the ultimate threat.


  • Quetzalcoatl Battle-Suit and Helmet: Aztek's battle-suit and helmet are masterpieces of occult engineering. The ancient battle helmet provides the focus for the four dimensional power source.[1] This power source can only be recharged via special rituals.[2]
    • Collective Memories: The helmet contains the stored memories of all the past wearers. A normal person would have his mind driven to the strain of death if he donned the helmet and was assaulted by the collective memories. Thus, as part of the final initiation, the current champion learns mental puzzles that keep the past personalities occupied.[3]
    • Energy Projection
    • Energy Resistance: Aztek can increase the exterior temperature of his suit to free himself from frozen situations. He can also shift its internal density to resist certain forms of energy and damage.[5]

    • Wire Nets: These are electrified and can be used to incapacitate enemies.[7]
    • Missile Launchers[2]

    • Invisibility[8]
    • Superhuman Speed: Aztek has precise control over his speed. He can accelerate and decelerate within seconds.[4][11]
