John Leguizamo Right About Representation, Wrong About the Complete Lack of Latinx Comics Heroes

As a Latina, I always feel a special kind of pride whenever I see a Latinx hero pop up on the pages of my favorite comics. Though, to hear John Leguizamo tell it, there are none, which has me a little confused.

The Latino Hero You Created Just Had to Have a Drug Cartel Past? You’re Killing Me, The Gifted.

I've been really excited for The Gifted, which premieres next week. I'm not even a huge X-Men fan, and yet every trailer has intrigued me. I'm digging the family approach, the fact that it's about parents protecting their children with newly-discovered mutant abilities from a world hostile against mutants. Yet there's one element (created specifically for the show, so there's no source material to blame) that dulls the luster of my excitement.

Beatriz at Dinner Trailer Provides Chilling Glimpse of the “First Great Film of the Trump Era”

It's important now, more than ever that we see depictions of Latinx in media that go beyond the impoverished immigration narrative. Latinx who may have accents and who may be immigrants, but who've lived and worked (legally even!) for decades and are intelligent, thoughtful, nuanced people. The trailer after the jump promises that the upcoming film Beatriz at Dinner, from Puerto Rican director Miguel Arteta, will deliver just that.

White House Denies Plan to Mobilize National Guard on Immigrants, Which Is Not Comforting for SO MANY Reasons

But here's why it's important to pay attention anyway.

Earlier this morning, the Associated Press broke the story above. That the Trump administration "considers mobilizing" National Guard troops to round up undocumented immigrants. The White House has denied this. The AP has since followed up with receipts. This is going to be a long day ...

Review: Fanbase Press Comic Quince Shows That With Great Coming-Of-Age Parties Come Great Responsibility

Growing up Puerto Rican in NYC, I didn't have a quinceañera. However, I was in one. Yes, in one, bridesmaid-style, because quinceañeras are huge affairs that rival weddings. I had to get a poofy dress and learn a waltz for a group dance and everything. They're exciting, and also enough to drive the girl whose special day it is not just a little bit crazy. For Lupe, the protagonist of the Fanbase Press series Quince, they're also enough to grant a girl superpowers!

UPDATED: Being Latinx Is Not About Color: What We Can Learn From Floriana Lima’s Casting as Maggie Sawyer on Supergirl

I was immediately smitten with Floriana Lima on The CW's Supergirl. Her character's been billed by the show's creators as Latina, and Maggie herself talks about being a non-white lesbian growing up in Nebraska. It's an awesome and rare double-whammy of representation in a fictional universe. I also learned, when looking Lima up on Wikipedia to see her other credits, that she's not Latina at all, but Italian-American. This is where things got complicated.

Disney Channel’s Elena of Avalor Delivers the First Latina Disney Princess

Of the eleven or so Disney Princesses that exist*, one is Asian (Mulan), one is Native American (Pocahontas), and one is black (Tiana). These princesses were added as of the mid-1990s. However, despite the fact that Latinx comprise 17% of the U.S. population and are the largest minority in the country, we had yet to see a Latina Disney Princess...until now.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-Winning Musical In the Heights Set to Be a Film From The Weinstein Co.

I'll admit it. I'm a Lin-Manuel Miranda hipster. Sure, everyone's all over him now because of Hamilton, but I was there back before people all over the country knew his name. Back when I sat mesmerized in a Broadway theater watching a musical that captured so much of my life as a Latinx in New York City, In the Heights. Now, that musical is finally going to be a film.
