Belize is a country in Central America. Once part of the Mayan, and very briefly the Spanish Empire, it was most recently affiliated with the British Empire, prior to gaining its independence in 1981. The country is bordered to the south and west by Guatemala, to the north by Mexico, and to the east by the Caribbean Sea.
More than five-hundred years ago, an alien space fleet came to Earth and landed in Belize. They used their technology against a Mayan leader named Talaoc, transforming him into a disembodied spirit. Talaoc believed that he had ascended to godhood as the Mayan God of War. The Mayans constructed an elaborate pyramid around one of the alien ships. As time went on, the Mayans eventually stopped fearing Talaoc, and his power diminished as faith in his existence waned. He placed himself into a state of hibernation and slept for more than five-hundred years.
Only a few years ago, Talaoc's soul awakened anew and he took possession of an American CIA section chief named Grace Kasaba. He used her influence in a bid to regain his former power. At this time, Talaoc encountered another being who shared his particular non-corporeal disposition, the super-hero known as Deadman. The two beings fought one another, during which time, the five-hundred year old alien vessel suddenly came to life. It smashed through the pyramid and took off into the sky. With the pyramid destroyed, Talaoc lost all of his power and dissipated into the ether.
