El Guapo (Marvel)
Real Name: Robbie Rodriguez
Search for 'El Guapo (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
El Guapo can fly through the air on his skateboard. He also seems to share some kind of psychic link with the board, akin to Silver Surfer's link with his surfboard.

Bio:
Robbie Rodriguez was a stunt man working on filming the new X-Statix movie when the director decided to move into the role of a star in order to promote a latin presence in the film, and soon the character, El Guapo was written into the movie. One day, when the real X-Statix came to visit, a mutant named Sharon Ginsberg, who blamed the loss of her wings from X-Statix, attacked and killed the actors, believing them to be the actual team. Rodriguez later defeated Ginsberg and was soon recruited into X-Statix.

Later on, El Guapo learned how to communicate with fellow X-Statix member, Doop, and cheated on his girlfriend, Consuela, while knowingly being under surveillance. The pictures were published by the tabloids, and El Guapo threatened to attack Doop, but he was stopped by the rest of X-Statix. That night, he was attacked by his own skateboard for cheating on his girlfriend.

Later on, the team travelled to Afghanistan to rescue the cast and crew of a reality TV show who were kidnapped by members of the Taliban. During the battle, a missle deflected off of Phat and exploded near El Guapo, which had blown off both his legs.
Shortly after the death of Henrietta Hunter, the record company released a single by her which ended up killing anyone who sang it. El Guapo hummed along with it, and was shortly impaled by his own skateboard.
