Robot-man’s the Puerto Rican college kid who started The Guardians. He’s struggling with multiple sclerosis, which drove him to build the supersuit that ensures he can keep moving even on the days he’s paralyzed. At first, he was just trying to keep high schoolers out of trouble by channeling their vigilante energy into safe, armored superhero activity. Now he’s balancing local police with government investigators and adult superhero teams that want information about his teen supersoldiers.
The other Guardians don’t know all that, though. He keeps them out of the politics. His job is to
keep them safe.
So when they start dying, it’s his fault.
