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 mind, 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.


  • Super strength
  • Increased stamina
  • Super speed
  • Flight
  • Energy projection, most often manifesting in the form of electricity


In her Plata Peligrosa persona, Maria has green eyes with a silver mask covering them, a silver sombrero with three stars on each side, a matching leotard, boots, a glove that is longer than her powerful one, and a red cape with a gold clasp with the initials, PP for Plata Peligrosa, and her same gold earrings. Her hair is put in a high ponytail. Her glove is mostly silver, but the middle has a skull and the wrist is black studded with silver spikes.


In A Mother's Glove, She is driven into complete madness when she is out seeking danger. She does her battle cry whenever starting a fight or eager to fight villians. In The Return of Plata Peligrosa, she becomes flirtatious around White Pantera and made a deal with the glove. But after she is Plata Peligrosa for one hour, she must take it off or else she will become unstable and destructive again.
