Latina Super Heroes: Let's Discuss

America Chavez, The Newest Latina Superhero to hit the MCU Big Screen

At Luz we’re obsessed with everything and anything media-related. If you’re looking for a place to chat comic books, cos-play, and the comic book universe (and the multiverse too, perhaps?) then check out our newly added Luz Discord Comic Channel.

And don’t worry, it’s a safe space for Luz Members only so don’t forget to sign up for your free account to get the Discord invite if you’re not already a Member.

In the Luz Comic Channel we’ll be talking everything Latina in comics to dissecting America Chavez in the new Doctor Strange movie and more. Latinas and Latinos don’t have nearly enough presence in the comic universes, but that’s starting to change. That’s happening because the fandom keeps demanding it! Bad Bunny as El Muerto didn’t happen on its own, after all.

And yes, we know people have thoughts about Puerto Rican Bad Bunny being cast as Mexican El Muerto, so that’s what the Luz Discord Comic Channel is for - to discuss! Respectfully, of course. Our comunidad is your comunidad after all, we’ll see you there!

I grew up being told, “you can’t do that because you’re a girl” or “your brother can because he’s a boy” and I hated hearing that. It’s been something that has tormented me my entire life.
