VUCUB-CAQUIX
Also known as VUCAB-CAME, VUCUB CAMÉ, VUCAB-CAKIX

Demonic Deadly Death God of the Maya Underworld

He is Lord of XIBALBA, the Mayan Underworld, along with his second-in-command HUN-CAME.

His name means 'Seven Macaw' and he's the Gigantic Bird God Monster who set himself up as the Sun God but lost at darts to the HERO-TWINS — who cheated and used blowpipes. His sons were also troublemakers, being the giant demons CABRAKAN and ZIPACNA.

According to legend, VUCUB-CAQUIX carried the false sun in his beak and was shot down in flames at the end of the last creation.

Interestingly enough, in the constellation of Cygnus his beak holds the mysterious star X-1, which became a super-nova and now seems to harbor a black hole.
