LGBTQ+ Latina superhero ‘Miss America’ series reportedly in the works
Marvel Studios is rumoured to be developing the series for Disney+
According to their website, Geeks WorldWide has learned that Marvel Studios is in the foundation stages of developing a solo series for superhero Miss America for Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+.
America Chavez (Miss America) was raised by two mothers in the Utopian Parallel, a lush, wonderland dimension once threatened with destruction. Her superhuman powerset includes being able to punch and kick her way into different realities (what we’d give to be able to do that right now!).
Miss America first appeared in Vengeance #1 and later went on to join the Young Avengers in the second volume and the A-Force in 2015, before getting her very own solo series America in 2017. She is also a key member of the Ultimates, alongside the likes of Black Panther and Captain Marvel. Rumors are surfacing that Marvel is also looking into developing the Ultimates as part of their future phases.
If Geeks Worldwide’s sources are accurate, this is another progressive step forward for both Disney and Marvel as America Chavez (Miss America) is not only Latina, but also a lesbian.
This news comes just days after Disney dropped the mic again and again at this year’s D23 fan event, gifting us with reveal after reveal. Amongst these reveals, Marvel announced Moon Knight and She-Hulk for Disney+. They will be the first Marvel heroes to have their reveal on the streaming service.
Viva Miss America, Protector of the Omniverse!
