Amazo was the world's first android, an artificial being constructed by the immortality-obsessed genius Professor Ivo as a means to secure eternal life. Through miraculous "absorpting cells," Ivo imbued Amazo with the ability to duplicate the powers of any meta-human he encountered, particularly the founding roster of the JLA. Though initially defeated, Amazo returned to plague the JLA and other heroes repeatedly, awakened from an electronic sleep to fulfill Ivo's singular goal of finding a means to prolong his life indefinitely. Though "upgraded" into different costumes and configurations over the years, the current Amazo is in fact the original model, resurrected from the moment of his creation by the current JLA's Hourman, Amazo's time-manipulating android "descendant" from the 853rd Century. Faced with an android many times more sophisticated than himself. Amazo developed an instant enmity for Hourman, who made the original android feel obsolete. But having absorbed part of Hourman's unlimited power, Amazo will devote the rest of his existence to dogging Hourman's steps and proving once and for all which of them is the superior android.
