Aztec of the City comic books were first created and published by Fernando Rodriguez on Cinco de Mayo, 1993 in San Jose, CA. Aztec of the City is a 32 page, black & white comic book that features two cousins who become Latino Super Heroes. Tony Avalos is a 19 year old college student, recovering from an accident that has left him using crutches. Whenever Tony Avalos is unconscious or falls asleep, the spirit of Cuauhtemoc, rises from his body and the young Avalos is unknowingly transformed into the Aztec of the City.
Avalos' cousin and tocayo, Tony Torres, is a Mexican-American who decides to use his martial arts and boxing skills along with his power to sense danger, to fight crime and help others as the Super Chicano. 
Aztec of the City is published by DeLilia Images, a small independent sole proprietorship, owned by Luis Rodriguez with art by Ernie Polo of Mt View, CA (issue # 1) and Jaime Nava Pastrana of Cabo San Lucas (issue #2 and # 3).
