As Comic-Con International hits San Diego for the first time since the pandemic began, one artist is working to bring diversity to the convention.
Kayden Phoenix is the author who created the first Latina superhero universe in comic book history. She created these superheroes from her experiences as a Chicana woman.
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.
Boyle Heights resident, Kayden Phoenix, is on a mission to bring more Latina representation to film and TV, starting with her very own universe of superheroes that are being introduced via comic books.
