On Tuesday December 27, 2016 an announcement was made that shattered the Star Wars community. Carrie Fisher, our beloved Princess Leia, had passed away a few days after suffering a reportedly "massive" heart attack while en route from London to Los Angeles. The actress, author and metal health advocate died at 8:55am. She was 60 years old.

2016 saw several super heroes brought to the screen for the very first time. It's been a great and interesting year regarding which characters movie and television studios gave the green light to. We are living in an age where more women and characters of color are becoming main stream. And it's awesome! We also got a surprise announcement from DC Comics; Superman would be guest starring on the hit CW series, Supergirl (it was assumed that DC would only want Henry Cavill flying around).
Each of the actors listed absolutely slaughtered the roles they were cast in (despite some questionable wardrobe among a few). They did justice to our favorite comic book characters and for that, we are eternally thankful. Below, in no particular order, is a list of the best heroes and villains casting of 2016. I've also included the worst casting of the year. Who will make the list? Keep on reading to find out!

Zatanna is one of my favorite characters in the DC Universe! I first discovered her on Batman: The Animated Series. I began reading any book she was featured in and have enjoyed seeing her play a bigger role in media (Justice League Unlimited, Smallville and Injustice just to name a few). I have been costuming her for several years and have done many photo shoots. Check out my gallery which also features Kevin D Cosplay as Doctor Strange in a DC and Marvel team up!

"You don't look Puerto Rican."
That statement was made to me countless times throughout my childhood and teen years. It has even followed me into adulthood. The revelation of my ethnicity would come as a shock to those who inquired. The statement that genuinely follows, that I don't "look" Puerto Rican baffled me as a child. What were Puerto Ricans "suppose" to look like? I didn't know it then but I had fallen victim to being stereo typed. What was worse was that other children and adults who were also of Puerto Rican descent, didn't accept that I was one of them. I was often accused by other Puerto Ricans of lying about my ethnicity. I was called a liar. Surely one of my parents was Caucasian? Perhaps I was too ashamed or confused to confess that either my mother or father was White.
Both of my grandparents from my Mother and Fathers side of the family were from San Juan. They immigrated to the United States. My mother and father are Americans who were born in this country. I was born in this country. But I am of Puerto Rican descent.
