Killing Time in Suicide Central
Welcome to a town called vanity. It's the most depressing city in America because it breeds some of the most contemptible villains imaginable... villains you might not have heard of yet... but you will. Soon!
But a ray of hope now shines on this most sinful of cities.
His name is Aztek, the Ultimate Man!
Trained from birth, he is the pinnacle of human perfection, his unique armor giving him powers and abilities far greater than most of Earth's heroes. Like all those who came before him, his life has been dedicated to guarding against a great and ancient evil bent on the destruction of humankind. Like his predecessors, Aztek does not know when evil will strike... only that he must be ready when it does.
And as the Ultimate Man waits -- poised for the big danger -- he becomes a shiny target for the obscure offenders of virtue trying to make a name for themselves in Vanity. Can the novice hero survive long enough to one day face his destiny? Or will Vanity prove to be the hero's downfall?
