Amazo (DC Comics) from the Who's Who



This is a capsule writeup for the classic version of the character, before the 1999 revival.

This is part of the material that was back-upped from the Knight of Shadow page, back when we did that because RPG “personal web pages” kept vanishing without warning.


  • Real Name: Amazo.
  • Marital Status: N/A.
  • Known Relatives: N/A.
  • Group Affiliation: None.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 8’ Weight: 485lbs.
  • Eyes: Black Hair: None



Amazo was the creation of Professor Ivo, a scientist obsessed with immortality. He used Amazo to fight the Justice League several times, with Amazo only barely being defeated each time. Amazo would much rather not fight and just sleep, but he has no other choice when activated.

Of late, though, he has been given other motivations. JLDetroit fought Amazo with another person’s mind inside. JLQ gave some damn reason for Amazo to fight. I think. Anyway, his programming is not just to fight, but to fight the *Justice League*.
