With WonderCon having just taken place in Los Angeles last weekend; and, more importantly, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out last week; and, even more importantly, my ongoing 10 Count! series in which I’m booking fantasy WrestleMania cards based on different pop culture mediums, I bring you the ultimate comic book fictional wrestling card. Which is way better than anything Marvel’s Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation has ever put on.
Title: Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #6
Bio: Despite becoming a masked luchador in the name of his father, El Muerto is neither a junior or a El hijo del. After being given 10 years to train and unmask a hero, in order to avenge his father’s death and earn his mask, El Muerto chooses to go after Spider-Man of all people, instead of a regular babyface/tecnico luchador.
Signature Move: Being rescued from El Dorado.
With Lucha Underground fully embracing their comic book influences and releasing their own comic book yesterday, and with the premiere of season two tonight, it only made sense to make this list of the best fictional comic book luchadores. With many of the heroes and villains of Lucha Underground borrowing from the same supernatural themes and conventions found in these comic books, it also made sense to compare the comic book characters to their Lucha Underground counterparts.
