Her name is Tonatzin Mondragon and, by day, she is a 30-year- old property manager. But, on Thursday nights, she is Lemuria on the Sci Fi Channel reality show, Who Wants To Be A Superhero?
As Lemuria, Mondragon has the power to project balls of sunlight and teleport herself to anywhere she chooses.
Mondragon applied for the show at the request of her cousin, who was going through chemotherapy and, so far, shes done pretty well.
Shes one of three finalists competing to have a comic book based on their hero but, despite her success, Mondragon can walk around in public without being recognized by supervillains.
She attributes this to another heroic effort. As she puts it, Ive lost 25 pounds since I filmed the show.
