I had no idea the Young Avengers had a Latina superhero in the group named Miss America Chavez. Check her out.
But what is even more cool is the interview Fox News Latino’s Victor Garcia conducted with Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso to talk about the increased visibility of Latino characters in the comics he produces i.e. Miss America Chavez in Young Avengers and Miles Morales in Ultimate-Spider-Man.
Most of you by now my real name isn’t Hector Ayala. For professional purposes and as an inside joke to my fanboy colleagues, I used that name because back in the day, Hector Ayala used to be the name of Marvel’s only Latino character at the time – THE WHITE TIGER! When a Latino Superhero dies in comics, he stays dead. I’m STILL waiting for Marvel to resurrect Hector Ayala somehow.
Anyway, we embedded the interview below for you all to see. Check it out & petition Marvel to bring back Hector Ayala!
But that’s not all cool kids!
