Plata Peligrosa is the former superhero form of Maria Rivera. Initially enjoying her crime fighting abilities, the super-heroine lifestyle proved to be dangerously addictive, to the point where she felt it necessary to give it up in order to preserve her life.


Maria came across the glove that contains the Plata Peligrosa abilities at a party during her college years. Initially embracing the power that the glove gave her, Plata proved herself to be a great and courageous superhero, hoisting herself into deadly situations without fear to save the day. Eventually, she became highly addicted to the thrill that dangerous crime fighting provided under the glove's influence, and deliberately began seeking out danger. After realizing just what the glove was doing to her psyche, Maria decided to give up her life as Plata Peligrosa in order to maintain her life (and mind).

Years later, when Manny brings the glove back into her life, she temporarily reclaims her identity as Plata Peligrosa, only to give it up once more, as it's influence is too much to handle.

The Glove

Maria has almost no control over its excessively impulsive and danger-seeking behavior except for the first hour she is Plata Peligrosa. After that interval, she must remove the glove or she will lose her sanity and become destructive again.
