Background/History: Half human, half alien, Eskappar was an experimental subject born to a human mother (Ruth Abelgas) on the alien world of Igbao. Eskappar's mother escaped with the help of the scientists Irroian and Agaddon, but Eskappar was left behind. Irroian cared for the boy for some years. Eventually, fearing for Eskappar's life, Irroian helped the child escape to Earth.
On Earth, Eskappar was adopted by Caloy Asis, taught Tagalog and more of human culture, and renamed Miguel. Upon the death of his foster father, Miguel decided to use his strange powers to protect the innocent as the superhero Lastikman.
Now a college student, Miguel loved with the beautiful Yellena White until her tragic death. He lives with his foster mother Dolores and his foster sister Madonna.
Lastikman has fought numerous criminals and monsters, sometimes teaming up with other Superheroes (most notably Darna). He recently discovered that his mother is alive on Earth, and that she has become a Supervillain partnered with the Alien scientist Agaddon.
Personality/Motivation: Moody but good hearted in his civilian life, Miguel becomes outgoing, a showoff and a jokester as Lastikman. He fights crime and protects the innocent both to honor the ideals of his foster father and for the pure joy of letting loose with his powers. He keeps his true identity secret to protect those he loves.

Powers/Tactics: His half human/half alien origins grant Miguel numerous superhuman powers. He can stretch and distort his body as if he were made of rubber; is almost immune to cutting or penetration damage (including bullets); can actually change his shape in order to assume a disguise or take advantage of the powers of his new form. However, Miguel suffers one odd limitation when changing shape; the colors of his black and green costume can't be changed, and the costume is always visible. Lastikman shows amazing strength.
Lastikman is cocky and overconfident, but has been seriously hurt by attacks from Superhuman enemies. He is no more resistant than any normal human to heat or cold. He may defend innocents by forming a shield with his own body, and attack with punches or kicks (he may turn his fist into a club or blade). Lastikman can inflict considerable damage (14d6) by smashing directly into a foe, but rarely uses this attack. He enjoys jokes and quips in combat.
Campaign Use: Lastikman was created by the great Filipino comic book artist Mars Ravelo in 1964. This write up is largely based on the character as portrayed in the 2007 TV Series, with elements from the comic character (including his knowledge of other Ravelo superheroes).
His Strength was a tough choice, but he lifts some very heavy objects in the show and comic (usually when stretching, but not always), and has been shown turning into vehicles that can carry multiple passengers.
Appearance: Out of costume, a handsome Filipino man in his late teens, casually dressed. As Lastikman, a muscular young man in a green & black skintight costume (see picture).
Character by Mars Ravelo. Character sheet by Robert Dorf, 2007.
