Aztek: The Ultimate Man
was the brainchild of writers Mark Millar
and Grant Morrison
and artist N. Steven Harris
. The ongoing series was designed to debut a new hero of the DC universe
. The series followed the anti-hero Aztek
; a hero whose big picture mission meant he took unusual solutions to solving the small problems. Aztek: The Ultimate Man
featured an unusual city, unusual villains, and the supporting cast of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital.
Throughout its run, Aztek: The Ultimate Man
had counted Millar and Morrison as its writers, and Harris and Keith Champagne
as its artists. Famous DC cover artist Steve Lightle
lent his pen to the majority of covers of the series.
While Aztek: The Ultimate Man
was a critical success (it was rated one of the top 10 books of 1996 by Wizard Magazine
), it was not a commercial one, and Aztek: The Ultimate Man
was cancelled after ten issues. With its cancellation imminent, Aztek creator Morrison brought Aztek into one of the other comics he penned at the time: JLA
. The final issue of Aztek
has the titular hero joining the Justice League
Over the years, we would never go back to get a glimpse of Vanity City
, and Aztek would eventually die at the end of Grant Morrison’s run on JLA
, in issue #41
