La Borinqueña
Creator owned character developed by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez

Inspired by the Puerto Rican national anthem of the same name, the superhero La Borinqueña — a woman named Marisol Rios De La Luz, wearing a costume inspired by the Puerto Rican flag — will make her debut this summer at the Puerto Rican Day Parade. She also will be featured in a comic book to be printed in the fall during an event organized by Miranda-Rodriguez called Café Con Comics (“Coffee With Comics”); it will be held at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies-Centro, CUNY East Harlem campus building in a historically Puerto Rican neighborhood.
 
“This comic book that I’m writing with my team is not going to solve the debt crisis in Puerto Rico, but it’s going to open the dialogue in a way that can be accepted and understood by a larger audience that will absorb it, learn from it, and also take action from it,” said Miranda-Rodriguez, whose talented collaborators include penciler/inker Emilio Lopez, colorist Juan Fernandez, editor Matt Barbot, cover artist penciler/inker Elliot Fernandez; variant cover artist Wilfredo Torres — an all-Puerto Rican roster.
