A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Captivating Puerto Rican Minds …. “!!


~~September 24, 2016~~ 


La Borinqueña is a fictional character created by writer/artist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez officially endorsed by the National Puerto Rican Day Parade.


La Borinqueña is an original character created by graphic novelist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez which debuted at the 59th Annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade.

The first full-length issue is in production under Somos Arte.

La Borinqueña is a patriotic symbol presented in a classic superhero story.

Her powers are drawn from elements and mysticism found on the island of Puerto Rico. The fictional character, Marisol Rios De La Luz, is a Columbia University Earth and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate student living with her parents Flor De La Luz Rojas and Oscar ‘Chango’ Rios Velez in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

She takes a semester of study abroad in collaboration with the University of Puerto Rico.

There she explores the caves of Puerto Rico: Ventana, La Cueva del Indio, Las Cuevas de Camuy, La Cueva del Viento and the caves at the Julio Enrique Monagas National Park.

At each of these caves she finds five similar sized crystals.

Atabex, the Taino mother goddess, appears before Marisol once the crystals are united and summons her sons Yúcahu and Juracan.

Yúcahu, God of the seas and the mountains gives Marisol her superhuman strength.

Juracan, god of the hurricanes gives her the power of flight and control of the wind.

La Borinqueña #1 will debut December 17 and 18, 2016 at the Comic Fest (Aguada Con) 2016 in Puerto Rico.

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.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”



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.
