Kayden Phoenix grew up wanting to see herself on the big screen as a superhero. But, since that wasn’t happening, she took matters into her own hands and created not one Latina superhero, but five that now compose the first Latina superhero team in comic book history. Phoenix talks about her motivations behind the comic book series as well as the excitement of attending her first San Diego Comic Con.
Everybody needs a superhero, but if you’re a woman or a person of color, chances are you won’t find yourself reflected on the big screen, much less in a comic book. Kayden Phoenix is the creator of Jalisco, a comic book featuring a Mexican superhero that uses her culture to fight villains.
