El Hidalgo. El Hidalgo was created by the Spanish author Jean Martet and appeared in El Vengador Hidalgo Don Cristóbal (1930).

El Hidalgo is a Costumed Avenger. In rural Spain in the 18th century the peasantry are oppressed by a cruel Governor. The only person defending the poor and avenging the wrongs done to them is a costumed vigilante. The Governor’s soldiers call him “el Vengador,” and see him as a desperate, cold-blooded killer. But the poor know the vigilante as “el Hidalgo.” In reality he is the noble Don Cristóbal, a dashing, fiery hero who eventually defeats the Governor, helps the poor for good, and gets the beautiful girl (Dolorès).
