Manuel Eloganto, aka The Matador, was a world-famous bullfighter. However, his brutality in the arena made him very unpopular amongst the crowds. In one fight, he was being booed out by the audience which made him become distracted from the fight and he was severely hurt by the attacking bull. Eloganto survived the incident, but swore revenge upon the world and turned to crime.

He ran up against Daredevil[2] and various other superheroes over the years. At one point, he manipulated the Man-Bull into stealing the Golden Bull of China for him[3]. Later, he reformed, paid his debt to society, and resolved never again to disgrace his family name as he had in his youth[4]

Nevertheless, he later became targeted by the Scourge of the Underworld organization, but the Scourge sent to carry out the hit could not bring herself to kill him, as he was babysitting his sister's children at the time[4].


Matador possesses no actual powers but is extremely agile and quick. Highly skilled swordsman and formidable in hand-to-hand combat.


He employs a cape and sword which he uses for both offense and defense. The Matador has also been seen carrying a bullwhip.

The Matador should not be confused with the Golden Age Matador.
