It is not clear what A.M.A.Z.O. stands for, but Tabula Rasa (the first episode he appeared in) is Latin for 'Blank slate'.

A.M.A.Z.O. is a synthetic android whose unique metabolism allows him to absorb and duplicate the powers and abilities of others. It is also suggested that he can copy the personality of people. However, he does not assume the detailed appearance of the people he duplicates.

An android created by the deranged scientist, Professor Ivo, a former specialist in nanotechnology working in LexCorp. He continued his AMAZO project in private. Ivo intended AMAZO to start out as an empty vessel and over time scanning and accumulating various abilities and evolve into a god. So far AMAZO has copied the abilities of notables such as Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, Batman and J'onn Jonzz.

Despite months of traversing the galaxies accumulating great power, AMAZO still was confused about it's purpose and returned to Earth to confront his only paternal figure left alive, Lex Luthor. Luthor was able to convince it to spare the universe and create it's own destiny. Dr.Fate then offered it sanctuary at his home in Salem where it currently resides.

When Solomon Grundy resurfaced and went on a rampage, Dr. Fate and Aquaman were called to aid the League. Shayera Hol and AMAZO accompanied the duo. AMAZO attempted to use his powers to kill Grundy. However, Grundy absorbed AMAZO's power and added to his own. Alarmed by this situation, AMAZO retreated to space. It is unknown what came of it, but most likely, AMAZO chose an omniscent role after all.
