Marvel Studios is Reportedly Planning on Bringing Miss America a.k.a. America Chavez to The MCU
A report has surfaced from MCU Cosmic that Marvel Studio is planning to introduce Miss America, a.k.a. America Chavez to the MCU at some point in the future.
I guess this really shouldn’t come as a surprise, as any Marvel character that celebrates diversity will probably end up finding their way into the MCU at some point! For those of you not familiar with the character, she is a a Latin-American gay immigrant superheroine who was a member of the short-lived New Teen Brigade, the Young Avengers, and the Ultimates. She is a tough, no nonsense super heroine, yet one with a genuine desire to help others and do good.
The report speculates that her inclusion furthers Marvel’s possible plans to assemble The Ultimates in the MCU. Other members of that team include Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Monica Rambeau.
Miss America was created by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta in 2011 and first appeared in Vengeance #1. Her powers consist of superhuman strength, superhuman speed, flight, invulnerability/superhuman durability, and she can create a star shaped portal to other realities/dimensions with her kicks.
There’s no word on where or when she will pop up, but it could be in one of the Disney+ shows or films. This is just a rumor for now, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the character did show up at some point.
What are you thoughts on the possibility of Miss America being introduced to the MCU?
