I feel like we need to talk more bout America Chavez.

She’s a teenage latina gay superhero from another dimension. Like, how could you not just love her? Oh, and she’s a member of the Young Avengers.

Yes. As in THOSE Young Avengers. Did I mention she’s incredibly bad-ass?

You wanna talk powers? This lady has powers up the wazoo. We’re talking super strength and durability, flight,

as well as bullet-proof skin.

Is Loki checking out her ass? goddamn it Loki she will kick you so hard in the face. Oh yeah, there’s another thing.

She can literally kick holes between dimensions to allow for instant travel across worlds. So, basically…

America Chavez is essentially the ultimate superhero and someone we DEFINITELY need to be talking about more often.

“Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation”

It’s the one year anniversary of Beyoncé’s song “Formation”, and issue #2 of Marvel’s America comic (due in April 2017) has a cover by Joe Quinones of Miss America Chavez, paying homage to the classic Bey track.
