Miss American Chavez - Latinx Hero Spotlight

Basic Stats

Creators: Joe Casey & Nick Dragotta
Team affiliations: Teen Brigade, Young Avengers, A-Force

Why We Love Her: America is an all around badass queer lady - she can punch holes through dimensions! Raised by her two mothers, she left her Utopian to follow their examples of self-sacrifice. 

After Young Avengers we were sad to see this Latina go into the Marvel archives but were pleasantly surprised when she came back with the A-Force run of Secret Wars. The Marvel Previews have shown her in not only the Avengers #0 issue but also the Ultimate alongside Black Panther, Blue Marvel, Captain Marvel, & Monica Rambeau.
