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.

PUERTO RICAN SUPER HERO

As Puerto Rican superhero makes debut, her writer brings ‘the power of our people’ to comics

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 — will make her debut this summer at the Puerto Rican Day Parade. She also will be featured in a comic book to be printed in the fall during an event organized by Miranda-Rodriguez called Café Con Comics (“Coffee With Comics”); it will be held at the CUNY East Harlem campus building in a historically Puerto Rican neighborhood.

SUPER HERO

There is a real super hero.

It’s the common folk of the Island.

They are braving agitated waters and trying to keep the boat afloat.

The oceans are wild, the environment is against them.

The basic foundation of their society is being rock mercilessly.

Yet, they toil and continue to battle against all odds.

In modern popular fiction, a superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a type of heroic character who possesses extraordinary talents, supernatural phenomena, or superhuman powers and who is dedicated to a moral goal or protecting the public.

(Wikipedia)

The Puerto Rican is heroic, possesses extraordinary talents and superhuman powers.

All needed on a daily basis.

At this moment in time, the Puerto Ricans living on the the Island are super heroes.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. “Captain Puerto Rico”!!

CAPTAIN PUERTO RICO

Captain America’s uniform has three colors: red, white and blue.

It also has ONE star.

The Puerto Rican flag is known as the “mono-estrellada” meaning only one star.

Seems to me, there is no doubt.

Deep down Captain America really came from and represents Puerto Rico.

There you have it!!
