A first? Hispanic Business reports on the arrival of Americo, which it calls "the first Latino superhero." The comic book, created by Eli Hernandez, is scheduled for September release:

"Americo is a first in many ways. He was chosen by the people, by the spirits of our people and our land; he's not an accident of nature. He didn't become a superhero because he was bitten by an insect, and he didn't come from another world."
