Background

Junta.

It meant military rule by force, and Cristian Enrique Palma envisioned himself leading such a militaristic uberhuman junta against the governments of the world. Since he was able to read, Cristian would digest thick volumes of military history, particularly in South American history. He contacted many of those involved in the Pinochet regime from the 1980s to the 1990s. He investigated the Caravans of Death and the covert assassin organisations which thrived during this period. His father, the original Tupungato, was also a member of an uberhuman criminal syndicate which operated worldwide. Cristian tried to discover as much as he could about these other ubers.

During his secondary schooling at a military school, Cristian decided on his plan to be at the forefront of an uberhuman revolution. He would need to emulate previous successful military campaigns such as the Nazis, the Pinochet coup and even the Americans. He was fixated with a militaristic style, a uniform which would embolden its wearer while intimidating its opponent.

Over the next few years Cristian finalised his vision and marked his graduation from school with a destructive move against the Chilean government. He took on his father's name, Tupungato, which was the name of an imposing mountain. His father had semi-retired and lived mostly in Europe, so Cristian assumed he would be proud of his son's move to take over the legacy.

He was wrong.

The elder Tupungato was enraged that his son would show such supremacist views and destroy major tracts of Santiago. While Cristian took great joy in tossing tanks through the walls of banks, his father's heart shrank. After the uprising, which led to weeks of riots and a destabilisation of the Chilean government, Cristian found himself cut off from his father.

The isolation only fuelled his need to make his father proud.

He attacked two other cities in successive weeks and drew to him more uberhumans who shared his vision. Together with Gauntlet, they moved their attacks across to Brazil and lay siege to Brasilia for two weeks, sending that country into months of disorientation and confusion.

News of Tupungato and his Junta spread across the world. Uberhumans were either inspired by his words of a great future for their kind, or a little frightened. The general public viewed Junta as a major threat, and there was even some talk of uberhuman registration in some countries. This news bolstered Cristian's support in Chile amongst the uberhumans, and although he has not succeeded in taking over the government (something he doesn't actually want to do because the responsibility would be too detrimental to his bigger campaign), Junta has been successful in keeping Chile's government fractured. There have been frequent riots and attempted coups in the past five years, testament, Cristian believes, to his initial work.

Personality
Cristian was born into a privileged family in Santiago, being the only son of the wealthy criminal Tupungato, who was also one of the founding members of the organisation which is now known as S.U.M.M.I.T.. He knew from an early age that he was an uberhuman and since his parents were both ubers as well he began to look down on those without such gifts, including his two sisters. His supremacist views embarrassed his father who has since cut ties with his son, apart from brief meetings within S.U.M.M.I.T. where Cristian is an associate member. Cristian publicly views his father's rejection as a weakness but inwardly feels the pain growing as each day passes.

Cristian organised Junta to ensure he was at the forefront of any uberhuman revolution against the masses. He has had some interaction with the Kinder der Zukunft and Dr Mengele, but has since cooled ties with the Nazi-based organisation. He has also made connections with Gauntlet and Professor Quake.
Quote
"This world is nothing but the cradle of the genetic elite who will one day rise beyond our skies and dominate the very universe."
Powers

Tupungato is one of the strongest and most durable ubers in the world, able to lift in excess of 200 tons. He is fond of tossing battle tanks around in front of the media and there have been several iconic photographs of him doing so. Beyond his incredible strength and his near-invulnerability, Tupungato is also a staunch uber supremacist, his beliefs fuelling the Junta's progress.

One weakness in Tupungato's powers is his reliance of a connection with the earth. In the past his powers have diminished when he was dropped in the ocean, as well as a memorable battle on board a space station. Since learning of his limitations, Tupungato rarely leaves the ground and only does so with significant support.

Appearance

An imposing man in his mid-twenties, Tupungato is a second-generation uber who has been blessed with confidence and a regal bearing. He is very tall and has a chiseled physique including defined cheekbones (one of his trademarks). He has short black hair cut close to his skull and dark brown eyes which reflect intelligence and a strategic mind (although, as some have commented, Cristian's intelligence falls far below that of his father, the original Tupungato).

The Junta Uniform is a dark green with gold piping.
