Aguila Solitaria / Lone Eagle Comic Book - Mexico, 1970s
“Aguila Solitaria was a Mexican superhero that flies using artificial wings, is a marksman akin to Green Arrow, and knows ‘the secrets of the eagles’. (As a side note, he’s also a big time stud). And of course, his parents were killed by filthy gringos.
These villains certainly are interesting: stereotypical Indians - but with gorilla heads. I can’t decide if they’re cool or unbelievably lame. And what’s with the “Guba!” I can’t take them seriously as bad guys if they’re going to spouting such things. I’ve seen GUBA as an acronym for “good, ugly, bad and awesome” and according to Wikipedia, it’s also a prehistoric Hungarian coat.
It’s interesting to note that in Spanish language comics, cowboys are quite often murdering rapists, whilst the Indians are the good ones. A complete reversal from their American counterparts. Don’t expect to find Roy Rogers, Gene Autrry or the Lone Ranger in these comics!”
