History:Hector Ortiz was given a collection of his father's failed inventions.Among the things, he found a "rubberized" suit. Somewhat of an inventor in his own right,young Hector was able to unlock the full potential of the suit.With it on he could jump very high.The more he jumped ,the higher and faster he would be propelled.

Powers:El-co's "frog-suit" absorbs the force of impact and converts it to kinetic energy.The effect of the kinetic absorbtion is increased everytime El-co makes contact with an object.Adhesive padding on the palms and soles of the suit allow El-co to cling to walls (and more importantly ...to stop bouncing!).Flexible lenses in the mask, allow El-co to see in the dark.something he likes to jokingly call "frog-vision"
*The lenses were a gift from Nightbird
