Added DiffLines:

* LatinoIsBrown: A large portion of the cast consists of Latinas, and America's backstory shows her going through various places in Central and South America. Every one of these people are brown-skinned.


The series is written by Gabby Rivera. Gabby has also written an LGBT novel, ''Juliet Takes a Breath,'' which, like this comic, deals with a brown lesbian figuring out her life on a journey of self-discovery.

Rivera.



* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Every non-white antagonist is only acting in a negative manner because of circumstances - the Guerillas only kidnapped Lisa to get America's attention and have her save Malixta, and Magdalena only kidnapped America because Arcade was using her father as leverage. This even extends to [[{{Chupacabra}} La Legion]], whose presence on Fuertona was not meant to be malicious, and simply lacked the ability to communicate their goals to the natives.

''America'' is a 2017 comic book starring the eponymous ComicBook/AmericaChavez. America is a queer Latina superhero, who's been on multiple hero teams and saves countless worlds. But now, she's hanging up the cape to focus on her studies at [[AcademyOfAdventure Sotomayor University.]]

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The book throws in a lot of Spanish. While it usually makes sense, the grammar is often shoddy.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A very odd example that (presumably) wasn't planned on by the creators. One of the letters in issue #6's letters column contains a StealthInsult to the comic, essentially equating it with ''Film/TheRoom'', and the letter is even signed "[[Website/FourChan C.O.]]" Gabby Rivera was apparently unaware of both references, and took the letter as a compliment.


* GratuitousSpanish: Granted, America is a latinx character, but the Spanish in the book is actually pretty bad at times, with serious grammar or spelling errors.

Added DiffLines:

* PlotHole: The crux of La Legion's plight is that they had no way of communicating their peaceful wishes with the natives of Fuertonas, as they didn't speak the same language. The same issue that revealed this earlier showed them possessing Madrimar and communicating in plain English through her. So they have no way to communicate with others, except for their way of communicating with others.

One of the letters in issue 6's letters column contains a StealthInsult to the comic, essentially equating it with ''Film/TheRoom'', and the letter is even signed "[[Website/FourChan C.O.]]" Gabby Rivera was apparently unaware of both references, and took the letter as a compliment.

** America has to fight Magdalena in order to appease the villains, because they are using Magdalena's father as a hostage. They have to fight, because they can't rescue her dad when they don't even know where he is, and they could kill him long before they could ever find him.. Which would be a legitimate cause for concern, except America recently gained and mastered the ability to find missing people through thought and feelings, and can time travel with no problem.

* {{Hypocrite}}: The eleventh issue has David preach for the removal of security cameras in the school, because the villains were able to hack them and use them against the students. He says that he knew this when ''he'' hacked into the security cameras, which he then used to help save the school. He decries cameras as a tool for evil, [[InsaneTrollLogic despite praising them in the same breath as a tool for good.]] Somehow, the fact that they helped the students doesn't matter in the slightest to his argument.



** It's most prominent with the issues done by Ramon Villalobos, ehere America's face varies heavily between pages. Characters also suffer from bouts of poor anatomy, incorrect body sizes and varying heights.
