    The film synopsis explains that Batman Azteca will follow the story of Yohualli Coatl who is a young Aztec boy whose village is raided by the Spanish conquistadors, leading to the deaths of his father and village leader. Somehow Yohualli escapes to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and the high priest, Yoka, of the imminent danger looming over them.

    Using the temple of Tzinacan, the bat god, Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, to develop equipment and weaponry to confront the Spaniard invasion, protect Moctezuma’s temple, and avenge his father’s death.
