Title: El Chavo Animado
Bio: Disillusioned with the current state of lucha libre, and the fact that he doesn’t want to end up a broken and withered old luchador, El Justiciero decides to retire. But then he returns to the ring five minutes later to retain his stronghold on the Lucha Libre Championship.
Signature Move: Retiring then returning to the ring, like most retired wrestlers.
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.
