Bon, Carlos and Marcos. Carlos and Marcos Bon were created by the Spanish creators José Canellas Casals (Amiel, Armando, Jaime Bazán, Black (III), Bronkos, César, Judit, Mario, Nick, Red Circle, Rin-Tin-Tin (I), Sam, Sankro, Spaceman (II), Titán (II), Toby, Capitán Velez, Mack Wan, Fernando Zabal, Zimbra, Khun Zivan) and Francisco Darnis (Mario, Nick, Rin-Tin-Tin (I), Samuel, Spanish Explorers, Tom (I)) appeared in Los Vampiros del Aire #1-45 (1933-1934).

Carlos and Marcos Bon are Costumed Avengers. The Bons are a pair of adventurous English brothers who help Scotland Yard fight crime. When a group of criminals steal flying suit technology and use it to fight crime, while wearing bestial red masks to frighten people, the Bons put on flying costumes of their own–grey, with operating mechanical wings–and go after the criminals, the titular “Vampires of the Air.” Besides the Vampires and a Spanish Mad Scientist, the Bons fight a variety of evildoers, from German pilots to witches to werewolves to ghosts in Gothic castles. The Bons appear in stories with titles like “The Monster of the Belfry,” “The Pit of Death,” and “The Madman in the Cave.”
