¡Vivan Los Tecnicos!

Today I started playing in  Mutants and Masterminds 3E game with my high school gaming group. We were told that while masked vigilantes have existed in the world, actual supers haven't really made many appearances and are considered urban legends, though this is about to change.

I am a fan of Luche Libre wrestling, so I decided I wanted to make a super luchadore. While I've never played it, my autographed copy of Luche Libre heroes is one of my most prized gaming books.

I discussed my character concept with the gm and he approved. My character, El Hijo de Lobo Plata (The Son of the Silver Wolf), is the child of a the leader of Los Misteriosos (The Mysterious Ones), an order of lucha libre vigilantes that can trace their existence back to the fall of the Aztec Empire. The original Lobo Plata specialized in hunting supernatural menaces, and his son was trained to do the same. Shortly before the campaign begins Lobo Plata is killed by an unknown assailant. An attempt is also made on El Hijo de Lobo Plata, though he escapes. His uncle, another member of Los Misteriosos, sends him to America and tells him to keep a low profile.

Of course the whole low profile thing isn't going to last long.

  1. Looks like a fun characters, but, as you say, does not look like he does subtle.

  2. I've only played him one session, but I'm having fun.

    He's actually the first M&M character that I've played. I've ran a long term and a couple of short term M&M campaigns, but I've always been behind the screen.

    1. I have not played M&M since 1st edition but run short campaign in both 2nd and 3rd, so I understand your position. Have fun!
