NEWEST AFRO-LATINA SUPERHERO

La Borinqueña

La Borinqueña shows solidarity with the horrible events of June 12, 2016

This was the day that 49 members of the LGBT community in Orlando lost their lives at the hands of a shooter at Pulse.

An American security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Hispanic.

It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history, as well as the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

It was also considered a hate crime.

The art of collaboration was instilled in Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez at an early age, when making the classic Latin American dish pasteles with his grandmother.

“No Puerto Rican can think of their heritage and the island from which it comes from and not start thinking about the current financial crisis plaguing Puerto Rico,”

Miranda-Rodriguez said.

The comics creator decided that his hero wasn’t going to be a crimefighter per se, but instead a symbol of Puerto Rico who could shine a light on issues that Miranda-Rodriguez felt should be on the minds of all Puerto Ricans.

Thus, La Borinqueña was born.

Inspired by the Puerto Rican national anthem of the same name, the superhero La Borinqueña – a woman named Marisol Rios De La Luz, wearing a costume inspired by the Puerto Rican flag is the newest super hero.
