Gato Negro, Nocturnal Warrior, El

El Gato Negro first appeared in 1993 under the guiding hand of Richard Dominguez, and he prowled the South Texas landscape for a good four years. After a seven–year time–out, the Black Cat—not to be confused with Marvel’s buxom anti–heroine—got a new lease on life from writer Michael S. Moore and artist Efren Molina, who put a fresh spin on the character in the four–part “Legacy” storyline. Here, El Graduado has begun killing off the leading members of the most prominent crime families of South Texas, and the mantle of El Gato Negro has fallen to Francisco Guerrero, the grandson of the original masked hero and professional wrestler who fought crime in the early 1970s. Like Batman, El Gato Negro is in peak physical condition and relies entirely on his wits and martial arts skills to turn the tide of evil in the Rio Grande Valley.
