Juan Meroz, also known as El Tigre, was a hunter of ancient treasures. Escorted by two mercenaries, Ramon and Tuloc, he eventually found the Mayan pyramid of the god Kukulkán in Santo Rico.[citation needed]

When the Savage Land native Maa-Gor was transformed into the Man-God, he took El Tigre as his servant. Meroz was exposed to the same mists that had changed Maa-Gor, but he was unable to bear his transformation and threw himself off a cliff.[1]

Powers and Abilities


Telekinesis, Telepathy, and a limited form of Precognition that he called the sixth sense of danger (using a fragment of the Amulet of the Power).

He used a strange energy capable to melting rock after he was mutated by the Mystic Mists of the Savage Land.



El Tigre also used bolas and a knife as weapons.
