One day while his 5 community day students are in band practice, a shooter shoots up the school but only killing his 5 students. Blaming himself for what has happened, he leaves the school and settles into the world to find peace.
He travels to Mexico after hearing from a local gypsy that witches can cure any problem. Once in Mexico, he sets off to a small unknown village inhabited by strange people and paranormal entities. He meets an old lady who befriends him and shows him to her lair. She turns out to be the ancient witch and promises him the knowledge to help cope with his loss by being able to speak to his deceased students. He is hesitant at first but when the witch shows him the cruel world in which he lives on and how he can prevent more incidents like at his school, he agrees. He gives her his 5 masks that his students got him as a birthday gift. Mr. Avila has a love for Mexican wrestling so all his students got him 5 different masks of his favorite wrestler.
The witch gathers all five masks and with her sorcery, she combines them into one powerful mask with the ability to change colors. Each color to represent each student and calling out their powers that they each all posses. His superpowers come from the masks so whenever he takes it off, his powers turn off too and if a villain takes off his masks then it acts as a form of disgrace just like in real Mexican wrestling. Well, the ancient witch dies, after fulfilling her legacy.
Mr. Avila eventually returns back to teaching and uses his classroom as his secret base of operations. When he starts to fight crime, he ends up needing help so he recruits one of his best friends and interest lover, Ms. Barker.
