|~ El Supremo about to almost kill Freddie|
El Supremo is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Messina) in the 1992 animated film, Freddie as F.R.O.7. He is the villain who is responsible for capturing various monuments, which he plans to use to create a sleeping virus.
He was voiced by Brian Blessed, who also played Cecil Clayton in Disney's Tarzan.
Role in the film
El Supremo is the true villain who is extremely responsible for capturing the famous buildings in the United Kingdom. He is also working alongside his partner and lover, Messina. Freddie notices that he plans to steal Big Ben next. El Supremo plans to use the buildings, by shrinking them to a size of a trophy and using them as batteries to a giant crystal, which will send a powerful sleeping virus across the world (starting with the United Kingdom), which will put people to sleep, allowing him to invade and enslave them.
Freddie, Daffers, and Scotty are captured by a giant robotic snake and are taken to a secret island in Scotland. Freddie and Scottie are thrown into a pool of sea monsters, while Daffers is brainwashed into a mindless follower of El Supremo and Messina. El Supremo uses the crystal to send his sleeping virus all across Great Britain and the whole country shuts down.
Later in the film, after the battle of the army of soldiers, Daffers and Scotty come too close to the crystal's energy and fall unconscious. Freddie manages to infiltrate the crystal's energy with his mind powers and destroys it, but also falls unconscious. El Supremo and Messina (who are preparing to attack their next target - The United States) arrive to kill Freddie, but he, Daffers and Scotty defeat El Supremo by shrinking him down to an ant's size and trapping him in a matchbox.
