Super Malon

Super Malon is a fictional comic book superhero team published by DC Comics. They first appeared in Flash Annual #13 (2000), and were created by Chuck Dixon and Enrique Alcatena. Super Malon was introduced during the Planet DC Annuals event of the nineties, an initiative to introduce international heroes. A few members of the team later appeared battling the Cheetah in an issue of Wonder Woman. Cimarrón later made a cameo appearance in Batman Incorporated #3, pretending to be a crime lord named Black Miguel.The Super Malon (Spanish: Súper Malón) were inspired by 1950s Argentine hero the Gaucho, a founding member of the The Dome. The heroes are a mix of fledgling adventurers and experienced vigilantes. Together, the Super Malon are the modern defenders of Argentina. Many of their personal origins remain a secret, their identities seem to have been influenced by Argentine folklore and traditional beliefs.

  1. I've not become familiar with these heroes. I'd like to see them in person and pet the animal that Vizachacha's name comes from.

  2. Do you think Super Malon could take on the X-Men?
