What is the Onyx Equinox series about?
This story is based on the mythologies of Mesoamerica, which features deities from the Aztec, Mayan, and Zapotec myths. Premiered in Crunchyroll last November and since then he has gained a huge following. The protagonist is Izel, a young man who is left alone when his sister is chosen for a ritual sacrifice. When he tries to kill himself, an emissary of the gods entrusts him with a great mission, since they choose him as the great champion of humanity and he must close the five doors of the underworld. Izel He only accepts because the gods promise to return his sister to him, so he will embark on a journey throughout the Mesoamerican region and must forge alliances, endure betrayals and face numerous challenges to save all humans.
It will be very interesting if they transfer the tone and style of Onyx Equinox al Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe, since surely they will use Latin American characters, either from the past or living today.
