History

Ferdinand Lopez was a revolutionary in his native South American country of San Diablo, but he could not manage to organize a successful revolution. He began working as an international mercenary to get the money for his revolution, considering himself "El Liberador de San Diablo." He joined Batroc's Brigade and Doom's Brigade as a means towards that goal. This led him to fight Captain America and other superheroes.[1]

Zeitgeist (Larry Ekler) killed Machete during his serial murders of South American costumed fighters.[2]
