Zorro was created by Johnston McCulley in 1919, first appearing in "The Curse of Capistrano". In 2019, he became the protagonist in the Lovecraftian "Zorro: Rise of the Old Gods" by American Mythology Productions.
Don Diego de la Vega is a wealthy landowner who takes up the masked identity of Zorro to "to avenge the helpless, to punish cruel politicians, to aid the oppressed". He lives a double identity in which Zorro is a man of action, a courageous hero with the mind of a fox. Originally, his civilian identity was that of a proud young man who cared little for the poor, was not a man of action, and was perceived by women as lacking passion. One version of Zorro has battled the forces of the Mythos.
