Juni Rocket Racer Rebel Cortez is one of the main protagonists of the Spy Kids series. He is an agent of the OSS's Spy Kids Division, the son of Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez, and the younger brother of Carmen Cortez

Before becoming a spy, Juni was timid and a total scaredy cat. He was frightened so much his hands had been permanently sweaty, which had led to warts. He'd spent much of his life covering his hands with band-aids and hanging his head in shame. Once he and his sister rescued their parents from Alexander Minion, Juni had grown more confident. Although at first they fought throughout their first adventure, eventually the two siblings deepen their bond.

Appearance

He has curly red hair, brown eyes and pale skin.

History

Spy Kids

In Spy Kids, Juni, like Carmen, had no idea his parents were secret agents. Carmen acted as a bully to him when she baby-sat him, an example when she forces him to climb the monkey bars everyday and kicks him while he hangs from it, causing him to fall on his face. He is very self-conscious, and is obsessed with the television show, Floop's Fooglies and even has the action figures and draws his own fooglies.

When Juni finds out that Floop is really a criminal mastermind that had kidnapped his parents, he adjusts to the news surprisingly well. As a result, Carmen begins to respect Juni more on their quest and gets her back for calling him names by calling her "diaper lady" because of her bed wetting problem. It was shown within the first two movies that Juni is able to mimic another person's voice (and laugh) perfectly as his mother taught him.

Juni was called weak and defenseless, but rescued his parents, and saved the world and Juni is quite a hero and not scared anymore. Juni has warts on his fingers and has to put a wart killer and band-aids on his fingers. But got over his fears of everything.

Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World

Carmen & Juni

Juni with his sister Carmen in Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World

In Spy Kids: All the Time in the World, Juni is seen assisting the new younger Spy Kids. He is grown up and came back to help them get time back after he was in retirement. Carmen is upset because Juni never called or told her where he was. He said he tried to strike out on his own and struck out. He continued to say he left because he thought that it wouldn't be cool to keep working with his sister. Carmen replies that was what would have made him cool. Juni is still slightly immature because when Carmen was frozen he made her pick her nose, and then took a picture of it. At the end, they become co-leaders of the new Spy Kids program.

Personality

Juni is friendly with a plucky "can do" attitude and an inherent optimism, though he can be naive at times. The most creative of the siblings, Juni is proficient with a big imagination. In the past, Juni was shy and skittish, who had trouble with sweaty warts on his hands because he was so scared a lot and needed some band aids to help while he was constantly bullied by others at school, but on his and his sister's first mission, Juni conquers his fears through action, though he's still a bit of a klutz. He's also sweet, empathetic and supportive to others, as he uses the power of his words to comfort Floop in the virtual room. Despite his age, Juni has a very intelligent mind, such as when he figured out that Floop wanted the Third Brain and tried to destroy it and when he tells Romero that his creations were never monsters and that they never wanted to eat him, but be with him. But he's not as smart as Carmen though. Being rather young, Juni is very innocent, humble and child-like and acts kindly to others. Even though he's younger than Carmen and she does get on his nerves at times, he doesn't want her to get hurt, in fact, his sister being threatened or hurt is one of the few things that manage to bring out his more serious side. Despite his immaturity, Juni does have a sense of honor and respect.

Abilities

Juni is seen displaying amazing feats of martial arts and physical ability, and appears to be adept in ballet, as seen in Spy Kids 2.[1] He is also good at stealth and infiltration. He is also skilled at hand-to-hand combat and sword fighting.[1] His most unusual ability is to perfectly mimic other people’s voices, which he inherited from his mother Ingrid.[2] He is also skilled in cooking, first made apparent in Mucho Madness.[3] He also has the ability to speak telepathy with his sister Carmen.[1] 

Relationships

Carmen Cortez

Originally, the two had a competitive relationship that did not leave them on good terms. Carmen constantly called him names and putting him down with Juni not being able to do anything about it. Eventually it comes to a head with Juni calling Carmen a name. Not long after, they worked out their problems while fighting their doppelgangers.

After the first movie, their relationship had drastically improved with the two working together well and both willing to do anything to protect each other.
