Skulls of Terror. The Skulls of Terror were created by the Mexican creators Fernando Méndez and Juan Roca and appeared in the movies Calaveras del Terror (1944) and Vuelven las Calaveras del Terror (1944).

The Skulls of Terror are Costumed Avengers. A small Mexican mining town has been oppressed and terrorized for decades by the tyrant businessman El Cuervo. He was responsible for the deaths of many, including the fathers of Rolando, Juan, El Mozo, and El Chicote. When El Cuervo dies, and his son continues treating the mine workers horribly, the quartet of sons takes matters into their own hands, put on costumes, and begin striking back at El Cuervo as the “Calaveras del Terror” (Skulls of Terror).
