A poor man, Francisco Kuato from a island country struggles to survive on the streets. Until one night while staying at an abandon temple he comes across a golden mask on an alter. Suddenly Kuato becomes drawn to the mask, like some force was complying him to wear it which he does. Henceforth Kuato is now enchantd with the cursed power of the Golden Goblin. With the power to turn objects (including people) into gold, he has gain not only immense wealth but power as well.
The mask has transformed Kuato into a goblin-ish being of superhuman strength, agility and cunning. His skin has been altered into a gold-like tissue; rendering him invulnerable. However, his golden skin can be harm if he’s near an immense heat source. With a single touch from his hands he can turn any object into gold and can change them back to normal.
