"THE FORCES OF JUSTICE WILL ALWAYS PREVAIL! WE ARE POWERED BY THE PRAYERS, VITAMINS, AND HEROIC LOVE OF OUR FANS! YEAHHHH!
-El Grande to the bewilderment of his associates.
Boris Valentino a.k.a El Grande is, in some ways, the opposite of Adonis. A former professional wrestler, El Grande suffered the same fate as many older mid-card wrestlers. He was addicted to painkillers, suffering from numerous chronic conditions, ravaged by steroids, and bankrupt. When his daughter in a car wreck on N-Day, as a result of his gaining superpowers, he completely lost his mind.
Boris Valentino came to believe that his professional wrestling identity of El Grande, a gentle giant Face with almost superhuman-like abilities was actually his true self. He's even come to believe he hails from Parts Unknown, is possibly an alien, and draws his power from the loving support of his fans.
Boris suffers rare moments of lucidity, especially around the Order, and becomes deeply depressed during these times. At least part of him is aware he's play-acting and he desperately wants to atone. Unfortunately, he believes what happened to his daughter was unforgivable.
In fact, of all things, El Grande draws his strength from Mother Earth. While Mister King is skeptical, Mister Arcane has come to the conclusion that El Grande is a geomancer who gains incredible physical strength and invulnerability as long as he's on the ground. When he's firmly planted, he exerts a field around himself that he's able to keep skyscrapers from falling over and able to lift a battleship over his head (he needed scuba gear for that, though).
El Grande is capable of doing other geomancy stunts like healing polluted lakes, rivers, skies, and so on but he hasn't the spiritual background to understand this. If he did, ironically, he could start changing the planet's ecology alone.
Obviously, this gives El Grande an incredible weakness as his power immediately halves when he is lifted off the ground and drains away shortly thereafter. He is also completely powerless on any other planet than Earth-0 or in space. Still, El Grande hasn't gone around advertising this weakness so few villains know this. The exception to this is, ironically, during super-leaps. Due to his background in wrestling, he doesn't see this as leaving the Earth and can move around like The Incredible Hulk
with no loss to his power.
Ironically, El Grande could expand his abilities to draw from the entire universe or Nexus but that's way above his pay-grade.
Furthermore, there's some indications he's immortal. When the Murder Machine
impaled him on a flag pole, Mister Arcane appealed to the fans of El Grande over a television set as a last ditch effort. Much to everyone's surprise, El Grande pulled himself off and proceeded to beat Murder Machine into next week. He also seems able to gain a temporary boost from having his memorabilia around him, which the WWE has been quietly re-releasing.
Quietly because El Grande isn't seeing a cent of this.
The UFFC has recently hired El Grande as one of their star attractions and made billions in merchandising off of him. Due to El Grande having Pendulum's lawyers behind him, he's got a significant chunk of this that he's given away to charity.
Most of the money is used in his daughter's name to help children suffering from rare diseases and to help underprivileged kids go to college. He doesn't feel it's nearly enough to pay for his sins and prefers to sleep in a ratty trailer than enjoy any of his money.
El Grande is over seven-feet-tall, weighs over four hundred pounds, and is never EVER out of costume. This includes a one piece spandex suit, a huge flamboyant mask, and a long shiny cape. Sometimes, if he's attending a formal occasion for example, he makes sure he puts on his World Heavyweight Championship Belt. A title he only held for a week as part of a promotional gimmick.
Super Dragon Punch Zero is a bit in awe of his teammate, having grown up watching him wrestle. Mister Arcane is oddly protective of the man, considering him a goodhearted but broken soul. Mister King couldn't care less about the man's damage and makes liberal use of him. Shadow Lynx considers him nothing more than a fool while Dark Sun's opinions are...mixed. As for El Grande, himself, he thinks all of his teammates are fellow professional wrestlers.
Who fight crime.
One thing to note about El Grande is he's fanatically protective of children. While all of the Order are protective, seeing someone under the age of sixteen harmed causes an unstoppable superpowered rage within him. He gains the ability to do things like cause an earthquake with his foot, cause plants to grow into giant beakstalk like weapons, and can totally ignore his normal weakness.
During their mission to Earth-17, El Grande witnessed the tongues of children being cut out so they could be made into slaves and single-handedly devastated the Imperialists First Army. An army which included many Nexi. He's since adopted several of the children and has them cared for in a mansion he's purchased far away from the danger he experiences.
Sadly, he mostly communicates via teleconference because he sees himself as an unfit father,
