Comments: Created by Jesús Merino.
Sirio-10 originally appeared in the Spanish comic Aníbal Gris, published by Planeta's Laberinto imprint. His creator Jesús Merino was the inker on Avengers Forever, and the artist Carlos Pacheco had worked with Merino on Laberinto titles, so one of them presumably was responsible for sneaking a cameo for Sirio-10 into the mass crowd scene of alternate reality Avengers in the series' climactic battle. As a fan of comics from around the world, I absolutely love stuff like this!
I wasn't initially sure that it was Sirio-10 in Avengers Forever; as you can see by comparing the top image and the one to the left, the coloring doesn't match, and we don't see enough of the outfit worn in Avengers Forever to be sure it matches the one from Aníbal Gris, but then I noticed the image on the right, and there's no mistaking those distinctive goggles. I guess the Avengers version has a different color scheme from the Laberinto one - or, in the real world, the colorist just didn't know the correct colors, entirely likely if he wasn't aware who the cameo was, which seems probably given the sheer number of obscure characters making cameos in Avengers Forever#12.
Normally I'd approximate his height and weight by comparing him to another character whose height had been established, but that single panel in Avengers Forever#12 provides no useful reference, and I'm not aware of anybody that he appears alongside in his Spanish appearances having an established height and weight (if that changes, I'll update or correct the profile). Given he's an android, the goggles he wears might actually be his eyes, in which case they are either red (if we go with Laberinto coloring) or white (Avengers Forever coloring).
The Avengers Index's entry for Avengers Forever#12 identifies Sirio-10 only as one of "2 Spanish heroes" (the other being Drac de Ferro), noting "Carlos Pacheco again includes characters resembling those he drew for Spanish comics amongst the crowd scenes." This wasn't entirely accurate, as Sirio-10 was drawn for Spanish comics by Merino; in terms of the vague identification, the Index did know who he was, but had to hedge round explicit identification because of potential copyright concerns.
