- "Moctecuzoma's revenge." You know, on the Earth that I come from, that's pretty much a slang expression for diarrhea...and I'm afraid that's pretty much what all your golden dreams of empire have suddenly turned into.

Synopsis for "Aztech Nights"
In a parallel Earth, an advanced and futuristic Aztec Empire has been invading and ruthlessly conquering other countless, parallel worlds under the reign of Moctecuzoma with assistance from their literal artificial intelligent god, Quetzalcoatl-9, who helped in guiding their conquest. Their next expansion is in Tom Strong's world.
Tom Strong investigate a strange golden ziggurat that appeared in Millennium Park. He manage to enter the structure but is ambushed and captured by the Aztec. He is restrained to a sacrificial altar where he is to be sacrificed to Quetzalcoatl-9; in this case his intelligence will be fatally and digitally recorded into the artificial god. However, Quetzalcoatl-9 unexpectedly frees Tom in exchange for his help in freeing the A.I. from his handlers. Following the instructions of Quetzalcoatl-9, Tom destroy the programs restraining the A.I. whom then proceed to laying retribution on the Aztecs.
With the Aztecs defeated, Quetzalcoatl-9 decide to leave Tom's Earth and retain the other worlds to be rule by a benign theocracy. Tom had initially believe that Quetzalcoatl-9 would use his new found freedom to enslave the multiverse, which Quetzalcoatl-9 even concur on Tom's rationale but point out that they both trusted each other based on the "prisoner's dilemma" which had achieved better results.
