El Muerto’s Power in the Marvel Universe

So basically El Muerto is a wrestler who inherits the powers from his ancestors through his mask, which gives him superhuman strength. The fun part is, in the comics, El Muerto has gotten into the ring with Spider-Man himself!

He also added that he grew up watching wrestling, which will be no surprise to the fans who have followed his WWE career. Sony executives reportedly portrayed Bad Bunny’s character as an antihero on the verge of inheriting his father’s power. According to Marvel’s official provided the description of the character, El Muerto is a wrestler who gains superhuman strength. His powers and mask have been passed down in a generational battle with the evil character el Dorado.

El Muerto also faced Spider-Man in a match with the intention of unmasking him, but the two of them ultimately ended up joining forces. It’s still not clear if there is any chance of Spider-Man making an appearance in this film. But we have to keep in mind that even if we do hear anything, rumors from Spider-verse actors can’t always be trusted.
