Top 10 Latino Superheroes
Last updated September 22, 2020
Who doesn't love superheroes? They have to overcome adversity and still manage to win, all while looking like true rockstars. We’re seeing more Latino superheroes as comics become more diverse, so here are 10 of our faves that you need to know. They're from both the Marvel Comic Universe and DC.
Miles Morales (Spider-Man)
Peter Parker isn't the only Spider-Man around. Miles, who is half Puerto Rican, also developed useful powers after being bitten by a spider. And following Peter’s death, it was Miles’ turn to take on the great responsibility of being Spider-Man. Please tell me you've watched the movie Into The Spider-Verse.
America Chavez (Miss America)
There’s been more than one Miss America in Marvel’s history, but I've gotta admit to being partial to America Chavez. She’s a Latina teen who was raised by two moms, and she can travel through different dimensions.
Robbie Reyes (Ghost Rider)
For Robbie Reyes, dying has an upside. The Latino teen gets a new life as Ghost Rider.
Kyle Rayner (Green Lantern)
You say Hal Jordan, I say Kyle Rayner. Kyle, whose father is Mexican-American, is one of the most important Green Lanterns in the history of DC Comics. How important? For a while, he was the ONLY Green Lantern — there's usually an army of them!
Anya Corazón (Spider-Girl)
How many other superheroines can say they have an exoskeleton? This girl from Brooklyn, whose ancestry traces back to Mexico and Puerto Rico, shows that Spider-Man isn’t the only comic book character who can use spidery talents.
Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle)
Jaime Reyes is the third person to be Blue Beetle, but he's at the top of our list. He lives in El Paso, Texas, with his fam and feels a big responsibility to take care of them.
Roberto da Costa (Sunspot)
Sunspot is an X-Men!
Ava Ayala (White Tiger)
Miguel O'Hara (Spider-Man 2099)
