Aztek, the Ultimate Man was a woefully underrated comic series. And it kicked the proverbial "donkey", if you know what I mean.

I was so happy when I saw that Mattel was making a figure of him.


the series will finally be released in trade in march!

I tried so hard to find and read issue 10 where he joins the JLA and they supposedly show the ritual of joining the team. I've gone to conventions and bought the same isues twice coause I could not remember which ones I was missing. All except #10. Now, maybe, I'll finally get to read that missing chapter of JLA history.

And yeah, "pointy headed dude" is one of the coolest JLU sculpts.

I have to give props to Aztec... I didn't realize he had such a following, I admit I don't know alot about the character... I will look up his comics and try to get them, sounds good.

And one venting thing about JLU, I hate the one short leg syndrome. Hate it. :x

I only know Aztek from the JLA comics...I'll have to pick up the trade paperback and see what's what. Love the action figure, though...almost picked him as a fave.

Original sculpt Wonder Woman, Vigilante, Blue Devil

3 Favorite Villain Figures?
Grundy, Ultra Humanite, Joker

3 Figures that could/should have been made better?
Stargirl/Supergirl(same problem, the body should've been bigger) Vixen (head sculpt) Kilowog (should've had a neck sculpted to make him a bit taller and more on model - great head sculpt though)

3 Figures most difficult to stand/display?
I think this comes down to the actual figure you own, some people may have no problem with say their Atom figure, where somone elses hits the deck every time.

3 Figures best made?
Grundy, Vigilante, Blue Devil

Is there any figure you did not or will not purchase?
Mostly repaints, but I do hate buying figures like Barda or Amazo when I know they are too short and not show accurate. Yeah, basically I dont like buying figures that are not on model.

Top 3 obscure characters you were thrilled to have been made? Grundy, Vigilante and Blue Devil

Aztek: Grant Morrison goodness! After you check out his trade, go and find the JLA issues that feature Aztek. Since the series was cancelled, Morrison sort of continued his story into JLA and wrapped things up...kind of.
