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]

Machete possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in extensive regular exercise.



Machete has electromagnets in the palms of his gloves to attract a close target weighing 200 pounds or less.


Machete always carries at least two machetes and eight to ten daggers.


  • Due to his death being off-panel, later writers forget he was dead and used his character in a few stories and then killed him off again, these were later attributed to his brother Alfonso Lopez who was said to be his replacement.
