One day while Carlos was taking his lunch break at the Void City dumps, a genetically modified cockroach that escaped from a Military bio-weapons engineering lab crawled into his sandwich. One bite into the cockroach, and Carlos transformed into La Cucaracha!
Carlos is a normal guy that one day got the power of the cockroach and now he uses that power to make his world a better place. He was once an amateur wrestler with hopes of getting into the WWE, until he blew out his back.
His fighting style is a mix of street brawling, boxing and wrestling (like the one on TV).
