COMICS: Marvel’s New Queer Superhero

America Chavez

Marvel has launched a kick-ass LGBT superhero to lead her own comic book – and fans are applauding the move.

America Chavez, a queer Latina teenager with lesbian parents, debuted in comic books in 2011, but with the character winning rave reviews as part of a group, she has taken the spotlight for herself.

The comic, called America, debuted earlier this month, prompting an outpouring of support from readers who were overjoyed to finally see an LGBT Latina superhero lead her own comic.

Writer Gabby Rivera, herself a queer Latina, said Chavez is “a foxy, badass, hard femme Latina who dates women and punches into other dimensions.”
