Kung-Swing: the Dance of the Pachuco
Martial Arts: superior (rank 2)
"Pachucos" are Mexican American youths who developed their own subculture during the 1930s and 1940s in the western United States. Jazz, jump-blues and swing music played a role in their self expression. Growing up in this environment and culture, Jesus began dancing and practicing his dance moves at an early age. Eventually he would evolve his dance moves into a personal style of martial art which would be perfected as a young Ranger in World War II.

Iron Will: standard (rank 1)
Assaulting a strange Nazi device, Jesus found himself transported to the Nexus of All Realities: Khazan. What he saw and experienced there taught him to press on against seemingly insurmountable powers. He would not let his will be broken by temptation, illusion or seemingly overpowering odds.
Corazon: the Heart
Disintegration: superior (rank 2)
Focusing his "Corazon" - his heart - Jesus Salazar summons forth Chi energy during battle to punch through tough substances and opponents.
Studying with grand masters at the Nexus he began to understand how to focus his martial Chi. During these years spent training and battling in Khazan he developed his martial force to what would appear super-human levels. When this power is used it can shatter, splinter or break substances which would not normally seem vulnerable to the human hand.
