Celebrating Hispanic and Latinx Characters in Comics
First Appearance: Captain America: Sam Wilson # 1
Joaquín immigrated to the United States with his mother and grandmother at the age of six. Joaquín cared deeply for the Mexican community, especially immigrants, and would leave food, water and medicine for people trying to cross the boarder. One day Joaquín was kidnapped by the Sons of Serpent, which was an organization kidnapping people at the boarder for experimentation.
Joaquín's grandmother, Mariana, informed Captain America (Sam Wilson) about her grandson's disappearance, and he began investigating the case. He discovered Joaquín at Karl Malus' base, where he had been turned into a falcon/human hybrid by using Sam's sidekick Redwing. Joaquín was rescued, but his mutations didn't revert because Redwing was vampiric and his regenerative factor prevented the regression of his condition.
Joaquin made his live action debut in the Disney + series "Falcon and The Winter Soldier"
