Lost and the 1980 Marvel Comic Connection

1 02 2010

Last spring, while searching the web on some kind of connection between JJ Abrams and Aztecs, I ran across some information that I didn’t share with anyone. It was a snippet of text taken from a podcast in which JJ Abrams was talking about how much he loved reading old Marvel Comics as a kid. He mentioned the series of comics based on the Gods of various ancient civilizations. (It may have even been Damon Lindelof or Carlton Cuse talking about this… the old memory ain’t what she used to be.) But the connection was there. That is when I found the following:

The Teteoh, first seen in Thor I#300 (October,1980) from left to right: Mictlantecuhtli, Chalchiuhtlique, Xipe Totec, Quetzalcoatl, Tezcatlipoca, Huitzilopchtli, Xochiquetzal, Tlaloc & Xolotl. In Front: Ozomatli.


They all possess different superhuman physical attributes and are all immortal. In other words, they cannot be killed. Wonder if there is a loophole to that?  It says here that the only way one of them can be killed is if something would happen to their body that would cause a major portion of his or her molecules to disperse.  I wonder if that includes being burned? I’ll have to look into that a little more.

Oh, and one last thing… it also says that Tlazolteotl, the goddess of sin and witchcraft, leads a tribe of vampire-like female spirits who died during childbirth.  That sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it?  

Hey, in what language was the Green Lantern and Flash Comic of Hurley’s that Walt later found in Season 1? Oh, yeah, that was Spanish. hmmmm…

For more information on the Teteoh click HERE. I especially recommend reading the information on their origins. 

Until Next Time: “That douche is my dad.”

Brilliant making the connection between Hurley’s spanish comic book and a comic based on Aztec myth. And as we know, we saw mayan myths along with sand and shells laying on Juliet’s parents coffee table in her flashback.

I definitely think you’re onto something.
