Latinx x Superhero x Queer

Two films are currently playing in theaters with latinx LGBT representation.

The reboot of the ‘90s children’s TV show Power Rangers is the first big-budget superhero movie to feature an LGBT protagonist.

During Power Rangers’ second act, there’s a scene in which the titular heroes learn that the Yellow Ranger, Trini (portrayed by Mexican American singer Becky G.), is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, with one character assuming she’s having “boyfriend problems,” and soon realizing
that perhaps she’s actually having “girlfriend problems.”

A young Rictor makes his debut in the film “Logan”. Portrayed by Latino actor Jayson Genao, Rictor is a mutant child experiment of Dr. Zander Rice
from Transigen lab escapes Transigen lab along with other children. He helps led the group across the border of Mexico where there is a safe haven for mutant kind.

The Rictor of Logan shares the same seismic powers as his comic book counterpart. His origin is different, but the idea of him being a young mutant used for sinister purposes is still present.

In X-Factor comic #45, in 2009, Rictor kissed Shatterstar. The two character first on-panel kiss became the first male-male kiss between two mainstream male superheroes in mainstream Marvel comic book history.

Fans probably shouldn’t expect the young actor from Logan to reprise his role in the X-Force movie, but it’s one more X-Force character in the film universe’s continuity.

“Is this seat taken?” Erik grinned as he asked the man scribbling in a small notebook.

“Oh, no please go ahead,” The writer replied as he cleared his stuff from the small table “Charles Xavier.”

“Erik Lensherr. What are you working on?”

“Some notes for my classes.”

“You teach?”

“I run my own school for gifted children.”

“What’s your gift?” At this Charles lightly blushed.

“Oh i’m nothing special. Do you have any gifts?”

“I’m really rather good at metal work.”

“Order for uh… magnet-o?” A waitress called.

“It’s actually magneto,” Erik said while winking “Goodbye Charles.” He grabbed his coffee and walked out the double doors.


Once again Charles and Erik were sat opposite each other. Erik spent his time looking at a book and never bothering to read because he was to intent on sneaking glances at Charles. Charles on the other hand was aware of this and was unable to make any notes because of it. Instead he had taken to doodling small pictures of Erik in the margins. They were both unable to think of anything other than the man in front of them.

When their drinks were called at the same time they both left their books at the table and when Charles came back he saw Erik leaving with the wrong book. He froze for a second thinking of the doodles and packed everything as quickly as he could and chased after the tall german.

Erik had walked down a long street and down an alley before finishing his green tea and then he waited for 10 minutes around a bus stop before realising that he was at the wrong one. He walked down another five streets before getting on the current bus. He had noticed Charles walking a few meters behind him trying to remain unseen but decided he would see what Charles intended to do. Charles hopped on the bus just  after Erik and in his tiredness sat on the lap of the man he was trying to catch.

“Oh god, I am so sorry-” Charles mumbled as he

“Don’t worry about it,” Erik smirked as he wrapped his arms around the smaller mans waist. “You know if you wanted to come to my house you could have asked?”

“I, uh wasn’t, you, y-you a accidentally took my notebook and I didn’t want to bother you so I was waiting for a good time to steal it back without bothering you.”

“You came all this way?” Charles nodded sheepishly ”We could have walked together”
