Weve got the goods on America Chavez, Marvels latest genre-busting superhero helping to transform the comic book business into the entertainment industrys most surprising mecca of diverse leading characters. Chavez is the queer, ass-kicking Latina...We sat down with America Chavez writer Gabby Rivera, who first garnered fame as the author of Juliet Takes a Breath, a YA novel about a Puerto Rican lesbian...Gabby Rivera: "I work at an LGBTQ non-profit called GLSEN as a youth programs manager. I got an email from Marvel when I was at work. And I was like, whaaat?...America is from this Utopian dimension where I think it was all women. [She has two moms who] seemingly sacrificed themselves to protect both that world...Lets talk about the title: America.
