Manuel Eloganto, aka The Matador, was a world-famous bullfighter, and swordsman. However, his brutality in the arena made him very unpopular amongst the crowds. In one fight, he was being booed out by the audience which made him become distracted from the fight and he was severely hurt by the attacking bull. Eloganto survived the incident, but swore revenge upon the world and became a mercenary. He later adopted a new suit and often became an employee of Wilson Fisk's criminal enterprises.
