Let's see here. You've got this big dude with a lantern jaw, flowing hair, and an obsession with belts. A "superhero" with a hideous costume and all the personality of an unflavored crouton, and isn't even the star of his own story. The "hero's" "love interest" who thinks ludicrous high-heel boots and S&M gear are casual wear. Goofy, disconnected action scenes that go on far too long and then just stop. Powers, plot elements, and (at least in the MST3K version) characters who just appear when needed. A storyline around infiltrating the stronghold of a super villain bent on world domination because reasons.

* This theory does explain how Tony never noticed he had super strength until being told, despite having been in fights in-costume by that point.

* Perhaps the opening scene gives a clue. The the weird Space Aztecs leave the mask at not-quite-Stonehenge, the booming alien guy voice goes "....with this mask, I'll always be with you....". The mask itself is a stand-in for the Great God Puma. In other words, the mask is the god by proxy so his guidance & powers can remain on Earth. The mind-control thing is really just misusing the god-powers of the mask rather than the sole chief function. Puma Man is the Protector of the Mask (Puma's stand-in on Earth). Kobras basically took control of the Puma god (in a way). This is one reason why the Gods couldn't just swoop down & do everything themselves, they were compromised & could only help from afar.

An equivalent would be an Englishman who lives in Morocco and practices Tibetan Buddhism.......Of course a better explanation could be that the writer's noggins were filled with gelato.

So, in the end, Vadinho can be a bit [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], but [[IDidWhatIHadToDo there's no arguing with results]]; he took down Kobras, destroyed the mask, and saved the world.

It was made by a splinter group or other folks. This explains why they could make such a mask ''and'' believe every man is free. Or maybe that creed came about because of the mask.

** Tony's father, who really ''was'' a great and heroic Pumaman, saw early on that his son was a wuss. So, he conferred with Vadinho (who's much older than he looks) and got his help in setting up those powers early on. Then, he gave Vadinho permission to do the rest on the grounds of, "Sure, my kid is a loser, but at least he'll have the chance to do something semi-useful with his life, if only by proxy." So, the theory holds, except that Tony wasn't some random American schmuck; he was a specifically-chosen American schmuck.

** How long was Vadinho give Tony the power to "sense danger" or see in the dark, powers that be possessed way before they met each other?
