Or maybe we need Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth:
Follow me on this. The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, if you know your Pocho Historia, is a Latina.
In fact she’s a lot like another rarely acknowledged Latina goddess of the screen, Rita Hayworth aka Margarita Cansino.
You like comic books and superhero movies? Of course you do.
Artist Ana Smile has people all offended in Brazil, but she thinks they need to just chill.
I love it when my vocation and avocation converge as they do in this wonderful comic installment of Wonder Woman from the one and only Pappy’s Golden Age Comic Blogzine. Pappy explains:
This delightfully oddball tale is set in Mexico with a beautiful eight-foot-tall señorita, bandits with bandoleros, Wonder Woman’s invisible plane, chains, bondage, and even Wonder Woman in bare feet walking over hot coals. Wow.
This Mexican melange is drawn by H.G. Peter, and is scanned from Sensation Comics #45 (1945).
An illustrator and lover of classic comics and a curator of artifacts focused on constructions of “Mexicans” in U.S. mass culture, rarely do I chance upon an artifact that blends these worlds (not to mention my not-so-secret fetish for fantastically strong women!)
Here’s a page from the issue featuring bandit “Mexicans,” Wonder Woman, freakish “Marya the Amazon maid” y mucho mas more [click to enlarge.]
