The Latina Superhero team.
Renata García is a Mexican illustrator and storyboard artist with a background in graphic design and Motion graphics.
Since childhood, drawing has been her way to express herself and create worlds where she could see the kind of characters and heroes that, one day, she wanted to see become real on the big screen.
Renata's passion for art has lead her to make a career for herself in the Mexican illustration and animation industry and being one of the founders of MUMA (Women in Animation - México chapter).
Ari Navarette is an illustrator specializing in children’s editorials and illustrations. She is also co-creator of the clothing Brand, Vuelo a la Hilacha.
Ari likes to create images where women are portrayed as strong and smart individuals free of prejudices; and believes that today we have the opportunity to change the gender roles that have been imposed on us by using art to teach and spread ideas of equality and empathy.
Ari knows that the representation of all people in the media, including Latins, is very important because being seen, recognized, and embraced is a powerful tool to build up the confidence of overlooked communities and empower them to achieve even greater things. And that's what her work sets out to do; create change.

As a Latin American woman, Aislin has always wanted to share her wonderful culture with the world and with other Latin Americans that so desperately need positive representation in all medias.
While drawing and telling stories, Aislin always transmits the warmth and inspiring culture which has formed her, hoping to inspire other Latin American women to create.

Following her mother's advice, she pursued higher education to be able to work on art, graphics, and work on projects with female leads for other little girls.
The A LA BRAVA team is finally together! Jalisco. Santa. Loquita. Ruca. And Bandita.
The superheroes are brought together by Muneca, an eager agent wanting to prove herself and her new-found grassroots organization. When the controversial Fair Share Bill, a bill to tax the billionaires, gets presented to Congress, females in political powers mysteriously start dying. The media labels it as freak accidental deaths but Muneca has her suspicions as to who's behind it all. So she bands the superheroes together and has them stake out the possible suspects, billionaires.
After a failed assassination attempt on President Hilda Ruth Sotomayor, the superheroes put aside their differences and work together to figure out which billionaire is causing political unrest and the murders.
Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. There are 41 female CEOs in the Fortune 500 (8.2%). There are 120 women serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (23.5%). Though both facts are "ground-breaking" and "historic wins" for women, 8.2% and 23.5% is no where near equal. Which proves the higher you go, the fewer women there are.
We've evolved but our ideas of gender have not. Feminism is used as an insult. Though believing in equality of sexes (the definition of feminism) is moralistic. One day it will be a different world, a fairer world; where a woman's success isn't a threat to a man.
