NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- On this episode of Tiempo, we take a look at the barrier-breaking story of La Borinqueña, the female superhero created by Edgardo Miranda-Rodríguez.
Created in 2016, the female Puerto Rican superhero, who gets her powers from the Taíno gods of her Puerto Rican ancestors, has already soared from the comic book pages and into the Smithsonian.
We talk to Rodriguez about how it all came together.
Also on this episode, we discuss this year's 66th annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade with "Madrina" of the parade Judy Torres and Board Member Louis Maldonado.
Tiempo airs Sunday mornings at 11:30 a.m. on Channel 7.
