Sorry, Ant-Man, but You’ve Got Nothing on El Chapulín Colorado

Marvel / Televisa

Ant-Man is the latest Marvel superhero to get his own movie…


Some people might be thinking, “An insect? Seriously?”

YES. Don’t forget about a certain quirky Mexican hero named El Chapulín Colorado.

Ant-Man’s powers are no match for El Chapulín’s powers. Here’s how these two insect superheroes size-up:

Ant-Man may be able to shrink in size…

But El Chapulín is more agile than a turtle…

And stronger than a mouse.


So what if Ant-Man rubs shoulders with Iron Man and Captain America…

El Chapulín can always count on Súper Sam…

Sure, Ant-Man’s helmet may allow him to mentally control ants and assemble an army in minutes… 


But El Chapulín’s antennae can translate any language to Español.

Ant-Man may have to struggle with a villain like Yellowjacket…

But El Chapulín has to deal with mobsters like El Cuajináis.

OK, Ant-Man’s wrist gauntlets may enable him to fire bio-electric blasts…

But El Chapulín has a squeaky mallet.

I guess it’s a big deal that Ant-Man has helped rescue Iron Man…

But El Chapulín rescued Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!


Ant-Man’s slogan may be this:

Ant Man Heroes

…But El Chapulín’s is:

We ? you Chapulín Colorado!
