The Q-Society was an ancient group on Earth that held many names across the ages. These included being called the Quetzacoatl-Society, the Q Foundation and the Q-Brotherhood. Their name stemmed from the Aztec/Pre-Aztec god of light known as [[Quetzalcoatl]] and the Society was founded with the task of preparing for the return of the shadow god, [[Tezcatlipoca]]. In order to battle their enemy, they began to groom champions for centuries with the express purpose of creating a vessel for Quetzalcoatl's power in preparation for the final battle against Tezcatlipoca. Across the long centuries, they were noted to had formed an elaborate network of influential individuals across the world which included the criminal mastermind and businessman [[Lex Luthor]] though he joined the Society to achieve his own agendas namely the destruction of the [[Justice League]].
