Behind The Mask (Bajo la máscara)

They will try to protect the city and, while they’re at it, get the number of the girl of their dreams.

The Zombie, tall and strong, and Roque, a short and nerd, are childhood friends. These inseparable teenagers, somewhat marginalized, go to the same high school, and their problems are the same than those of their classmates: exams, boring lectures, sociopathic teachers, and altered hormones that get in the way of their studying. But they have yet another problem… both of them are superheroes! Electrostatic Boy and Captain Toxic!

A giant robot is attacking the area of Santa Fe and is threating to seize the whole world. This will be their first encounter with supervilain Gargantor, whose real name is Mauricio, a lonely and rich boy who has enough money to create nuclear bombs and to clone himself fifteen times.

The problem is that paranormal activities are strictly regulated by the Government. And it will be Ricardo Romero, agent of Paranormal Services and Operations, who will find The Zombie and Roque, recruit them, and keep them monitored, as he has done for decades with every teenager with metahuman abilities.
