An Aztec elder seeks out an American comic book artist to paint creatures using magic paints so as to build an army from the 3D creatures the paint creates. The artist is hypnotized by the paints to travel to Mexico and create ZZutak, but after hearing the elder's plans, he mutters under his breath "ZZutak is your enemy" while painting the second figure. When the magic paint brings the second figure into existence, his plan has worked and it begins a battle with ZZutak. The elder attempts to get them to stop fighting, but they ignore him. They damage the temple supports, and the edifice crashes down upon all three of them. The elder escapes, but as he was struck by a falling stone, he has developed amnesia and his plans for conquest are lost forever.
