Omega The Unknown #4 (1976)
If any outside stimulus distracted el Gato, or he was injured or rendered unconscious, those under his influence would be set free.
El Gato was not about to let Teresa get away from him, and he traveled to the second-hand-shop where she was recovering to claim her. Gramps, the shop's owner, and Omega were not about to let her go without a fight, but el Gato's uncanny powers proved to be more than a match for mere brawn. Much to Omega's disappointment, el Gato triumphed and took Teresa for his bride. The night of the ceremony to solidify the pact between husband and wife, Omega broke into el Gato's home and interrupted the ritual. The two men fought, but this time it was Omega who had the upper hand. The final victory was achieved when Teresa used a mystic branding iron to seal el Gato's powers inside him – and against him – forever.
