Also a character created by Marvel Comics for their international Contest of Champions limited series.
Defensor, also known as Gabriel Carlos Dantes Sepulveda hails from Brazil, although his superhero duties take him all over the continent of South America.
Dressed like the Spanish Conquistadors, Defensor's power is to repel all energy attacks aimed at him back at his opponent, using a special golden shield, which appears to be his only offence. The shield does not appear to protect him from physical meleé attacks.
The Brazilian hero is also infamous for his machismo attitude, which he sees as a valid attempt at chivalry.
