Powers/Abilities: Hector is a compassionate family man in good physical shape who can, when provoked, use a broken bottle as a weapon.
History: (Daredevil I#266 (fb) – BTS) – Hector grew up respecting his parents for their hard work and family ethic. He resented his brother, Hugo, who took family less seriously.
(Daredevil I#266) – Hector ordered a beer and arm-wrestled with his brother Hugo, commenting that their mother would be waiting for them to arrive for dinner. Mephisto entered the bar in the form of a woman and influenced the man in the bar while Hector admitted to Hugo that he resented him, his freedom, his defiance of their parents and his carousing with women. Hector demanded that Hugo show respect and return home to their parents but Hugo refused so Hector broke a bottle on the table and used the glass jagged edge to stab Hugo, killing him. Hector came to his senses and immediately fell to his knees crying, unaware of the other patrons in the bar, including Jack the bartender, the heroic Daredevil and Maggie’s ex-husband, or the Pop Tarts band playing on the jukebox.
