In addition to DLev's answer, you can also play with 3D Effects like 3D Rotate or 3D Extrude (via Effects > 3D)

3D rotate effects

The 1st xyz cube is generated by applying the 3D rotate effect to each letter, using the Isometric presets for rotation, but adding a wee bit of Perspective.

The 2nd xyz cube is generating by extruding a square and using the Map Art option using x,y,z as symbols.

Perhaps another tool to explore is the Perspective Grid Tool (along with Perspective Selection Tool):

Have a play, these are fun to use :)
