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.
