Captain Tormenta. Captain Tormenta appeared in the Mexican comic strip “Cápitan Tormenta” (Pepín, Aug. 25, 1940-Apr. 18, 1941).

Centuries ago, when the Spanish ruled America, an evil-hating adventurer from Venezuela, Diego, first defeated his wicked half-brother and then ran way with his half-brother's lover. For this he is banished from Ibero-America by Don Ildefonso, the father of his lover, but Diego and his lover remake themselves as the pirates Captain Thunder and La Marquise, assisted by their friends Robert and Sheyla.

Then, suddenly, evil Jupiterian lizard-men appear and kidnap everyone, and Captain Tormenta and La Marquise die en route to Jupiter.
