This March fans will finally get the America Chavez solo series that's been so long overdue. America #1 from writer Gabby Rivera and artist Joe Quinones lands March 1st bringing the fan-favorite Latina superheroine with interdimensional powers to her own title.

The brightly colored and dynamic unlettered preview below features America saving the day in a new costume. Check out the variant covers by Jamie McKelvie, Cliff Chiang, and Skottie Young. John Tyler Christopher delivers an action figure variant while Jeffrey Veregge creates a Hamilton-inspired variant. But our favorite variant cover might be the one inspired by Beyonce from her "Formation" video.

This is the official description from Marvel:

Everyone’s favorite no-nonsense, hard-hitting heroine – America Chavez – is now starring in her very own series! That’s right, True Believer, it’s dimension-punching, high-octane super hero action as only the fan-favorite character can supply. And Marvel is pleased to present your very first look inside the hotly anticipated AMERICA #1 – coming to comic shops everywhere on March 1st! Superstar YA writer Gabby Rivera (Juliet Takes a Breath) joins critically acclaimed artist Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck) to take Marvel’s Latina powerhouse to the next level!

As the new leader of the Ultimates, America has cemented herself as the preeminent butt-kicker of the entire Marvel Universe. But when your punch is enough to shatter the barriers between worlds, sometimes being a super hero can get in the way of self-discovery. So what’s a super powered teenager to do for a little fulfillment? She goes to college! …Right after she punches out a few interdimensional monsters and takes down a pesky alien cult.

She’s stood side-by-side with some of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe, but now it’s time for her to fly solo. Be there as America plants her feet, punches her way through dimensions and faces off against an oncoming alien horde — all while managing a social life and a full class load. Don’t miss the highly anticipated AMERICA #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices everywhere on March 1st!

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J.
