Background notes: James Bond has M and U.N.C.L.E. had Mr. Alexander Waverly, so the two agents Mortadelo and Filemón needed a chief at T.I.A. (tia = aunt). Both M and Waverly were reasonable men, known for keeping their cool at all times so obviously the leader of T.I.A. had to be choleric. It could be argued though, that if he hadn't been choleric to begin with, he would soon be with the staff he's got.

When Mortadelo y Filemón was transferred to movies, El Súper was played by Mariano Venancio.
