Empowering Heroes – Black Panther and Wonder Woman

What they do have in common:
Both T’Challa and Diana are the superheroic and political ambassadors of isolated secret nations where oppressed social groups thrive and make healthy societies that work on their own.
Themyscira and Wakanda are similar narrative devices to turn the tables on different real world inequalities, each focusing on gender or ethnicity (though BP does a GREAT job of representation with gender relationships and female empowerment).
As a tiny note, they both do the arms crossed sign and I felt the link between both was intentional.
And most important, they both are game changers in the entertainment industry, putting underrepresented demographies on leading roles in a genre that is all about empowerment, and proving that representation is needed and wanted.
They’re not equivalent, their fights are not the exact same, but they’re akin and I can totally imagine them as allies and supporting each other at the UN meetings.

Qué tienen en común:
Tanto T’Challa como Diana son embajadorxs políticx y superheroicxs de naciones secretas y aisladas donde grupos sociales oprimidos prosperan y generan sociedades saludables que funcional en sí mismas.
Themyscira y Wakanda son dispositivos narrativos similares que invierten las dinámicas de diferentes desigualdades del mundo real, enfocándose en género o etnia según el caso (aunque Black Panther también hace un GRAN trabajo de representación en relaciones de género y empoderamiento femenino).
Como detalle, ambos hacen el saludo de cruzar los brazos y sentí que el guiño era intencional.
Lo más importante, ambos son puntos de inflexión en en la industria del entretenimiento, colocando demografías poco representadas en roles protagónicos en un género que es sobre todo sobre empoderamiento, probando que esa representación es algo necesario y deseado.
No son equivalentes, sus causas no son exactamente las mismas, pero son afines y me los puedo imaginar como aliadxs y apoyándose mutuamente en las reuniones de la ONU.
