Created by writer/artist Karl Comendador, Blue Turbo Max first appeared in the first issue of The Adventures of Machine Men Komiks-Magasin (March 19, 1994). Published by Counterpoint Publishing House, Inc., the short-lived magazine featured characters inspired by the Japanese Metal Hero series. After the book folded, Max was relaunched the following year, with a modified look, in the pages of Ace Superheroes Komiks #1 (June 1, 1995), published by Adventures Illustrated Magazines, Inc.
A "super android" from the planet Plutos is sent to Earth, assuming the identity of woodsman Maximo "Imo" Briones. When evil threatens, he transforms into the armored hero Blue Turbo Max.
