“Miranda-Rodriguez’s comic book creation— an Afro-Latina, environmentally powered superhero, La Borinqueña— is a superpowered love letter that basks in the spiritually connective pride that all Puerto Ricans feel toward La Isla del Encanto. He created the heroine, who shares a name with the Puerto Rican national anthem, not just to continue the growing diversity that has reached superhero comics, but to serve as a reminder that Puerto Rico can weather its storms, be they financial or natural disasters.”– The Washington Post
