    Cool Your Ticket to the Multiverse, Princess - Miss America Chavez Appreciation!

    Introducing the Miss America Chavez Appreciation Thread!

    http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/America...pian_Parallel)

    A rather obscure character created by Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta in the limited series Vengeance (2011), MAC debuted and seemingly disappeared. Including her in their Young Avengers (2013) series, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie fleshed out her character a bit more, giving some motivation and drive to her as well as exploring her origin. MAC continued to have consistent appearances in Secret Wars (2015) tie-ins and later featured in the Ultimates (2015), Civil War II (2015), and Ultimates˛ (2016) series.

    MAC's solo comic America debuted in March of 2017, written by Gabby Rivera and primarily penciled by Joe Quinones, while still peppering appearances in other books.

    MAC is also featured in the Avengers Academy and Marvel: Future Fight mobile games as a playable character.

    Cierra Ramirez will be voicing (Miss) America Chavez for the upcoming Marvel Rising animation feature, MAC's animation debut.

    (Miss) America Chavez was named Superhero of the Year (2017) by Entertainment Weekly.

    If you're a MAC fan, or you're newly interested in the character, feel welcome to talk about her here!

    she's too punch-happy. She needs a boyfriend, or something.. (I haven't read all her appearances, so kudos to whoever's doing something positive with her, I guess...)

    She's gay. She doesn't need a boyfriend. Besides, she's got Lisa as her girlfriend.

    Considering she is a lesbian, she doesn't need a boyfriend at all. And since when do boyfriends solve anger issues?

    I had never heard or her before Young Avengers, but I liked her a lot in that. Haven't had a chance to read Ultimates yet, but it's on my list. I'm very pro MAC.

    I liked her in Vengeance. She was fun. I loved her in Young Avengers, which was just a great book all around, and it gave her such a great origin. And then I'm already enjoying her in Ultimates. So, yeah, I really love her. She's become one of my favourite characters. There's a lot of depth to her.

    As has been noted in the thread for the Ultimates #1, MAC isn't necessarily "angry" as much as she is confident, and it just so happens that punching everything has worked well (enough?) for her so far.

    We know she has a soft(er) side:

    Lokie: "Oh, ugh. Is love really going to save us all?"
    MAC: "Of course it is. Anyone who thinks otherwise gets stomped into paste."



    Plus all the pet names she likes to give everyone shows that she can become emotionally attached (rather quickly) to people.

    I am hoping the rumors of her getting an ongoing are true. I mean, she seems popular enough and well, how many LGBT characters can you name getting their own ongoing?

    SO, I keep seeing MAC come up, and aside from A-Force and a few issues of young avnegers (wasn't a fan), could someone give me a rundown of who she is? All I know is she can punch holes through reality (uhhhh what?) and she's is from another dimenions (UHHH. WHAT?) but I'd love to know more about her.

    While she is confident, I think what people are mistaking for anger is simply America being very stand-offish. There's a lot of words you can use to describe her. She's abrasive, certainly. It's even safe to call her a bitch. But she's not angry. Anger indicates a lack of control. But she's very self-controlled.

    Bolded: That too. Confident people can be arrogant, even if their confidence isn't misplaced.

    And you're partly right about anger. Classic Hulk is angry. Villains are, at times, angry. Someone like the Punisher is angry, though, and has quite a bit of control, no? (not saying MAC is "angry", though)

    Well she's a lesbian but if you're suggesting she needs a friend who is a boy to punch then I guess Amadeus Cho would work.

    I liked her constant threats of disfiguring Loki's face. Funnier still was figuring out if she was mostly just bluffing, till he really screwed up.

    Especially since he's a Hulk now, and can survive getting punched by her.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Is that real? Are those real rumors? Because yes please. I'd love to see GW Wilson write that.
