Sankro is a Superhuman. A native of the Aragonese Pyrenees, Sankro, who dresses like an ancient Roman, has the powers of invulnerability, superstrength, and flight. He was originally Alejandro, a peasant boy, but the super-scientist Professor Crucius Henneken, inventor of SCIENCE! devices and owner of a secret lab in Monte Perdido, subjects Alejandro to various chemicals and treatments, and produces a superman. Sankro uses his powers to save villagers from floods, bears, wolves, and wicked Parisians.
