A.M.A.Z.O. was a nanotech android created by Professor Ivo. Amazo's nanotechnology enabled him to copy any trait and characteristic and abilities of people and objects, by merely looking at them.

After Ivo died of cancer, the android grew lonely and was then found by Luthor who took advantage of the childlike machine and manipulated him into finding parts he needed for his battle armor as well as fighting the Justice League. The android grew more and more advanced, not just by gaining superpowers, but also gained a more mature mind and started to doubt his new pseudo father. After gaining telepathy, he read Luthor's mind and had his doubts confirmed that he had been lied to. A now god-like being that had lost his connection to humanity, he left the planet and go to the place "where gods belong."
