    DC has some really awesome Latino characters on their roster so I decided to ask you guys who your favorite is?

    El Diablo just debuted in the DCEU last weekend. Is he your favorite?

    Blue Beetle has been appearing a lot in recent animated series/movies and was just announced for IJ2. Perhaps he's your favorite?

    Maybe your favorite is Batman villain Bane? Or perhaps Legends of Tomorrow star Hawkgirl? Maybe Flash wisecracking amigo Vibe is your favorite?

    Or all of the above? The poll is multiple choice so let me know.

    Probably Kyle, because there's little focus on his ethnicity most of the time. That probably sounds bad. I don't have a problem with Latinos, I just get really tired when things like a character's ethnicity or sexuality or religion drive narrative. I mean, it's good that comic characters are diverse, and that should be shown in dialogue or whatever, but the main focus should always be on defeating bad guys. I'm not saying that all those characters are purely defined by their ethnicity, but characters like Vibe are notorious of basically being stereotypes. Check what George Perez says about Vibe if you haven't already.

    @mattydavehalpeo: Yeah, no doubt stereotyping could be problematic. But if you don't inject culture into these characters on some level what's the point? It then turns into tokenism or black/brown/yellow face. I'm not saying black characters need to walk around looking like Chaka Zulu, but there's a lot more to ethnicity than skin tone or melanin concentration.

    If you can't get a Latino to write for a Latino character, reach out to the Latino community. Minorities want these characters to be well recieved too.

    Jessica Cruz is great. I voted for her. It's fairly early days for her but I can see us developing into something special. Her - I can see HER developing. Haha did I say 'us'? Crazy typos.
