America Chavez, a superpowered, inter-dimensional being who can literally punch holes through the fabric of reality, is one of the few queer superheroes of color in mainstream comics right now and the first queer hero Marvel has ever given their own solo series.
America, written by openly queer novelist Gabby Rivera and illustrated by Joe Quinones, takes its titular character out of her comfort zone fighting intergalactic threats and places her on campus at the Sotomayor University for metahumans studying to learn more about the cultural history of the world(s) they’re trying to protect. Note the Department of Radical Women & Intergalactic Indigenous Peoples:
The series’ first issue does a solid job of establishing who America is and what it is she’s trying to get out of her time at Sotomayor, but the issue ends with an iconic exchange that has a significance that transcends the story Rivera is trying to tell. As a part of a homework assignment, America is accidentally transported back to a World War II battlefield where she meets Captain America, who, as luck would have it, was in the middle of a fistfight Adolf Hitler.
Naturally America is…stunned.
