Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ costume inspires new Marvel comic book cover

/ 03:38 PM January 26, 2017

Beyoncé’s baroque and hip costume for her 2016 hit “Formation” was a source of inspiration for Marvel’s new comic book cover.


Marvel paid homage to the pop diva with its cover of “America,” which illustrates the story of Latina queer heroine America Chavez. Surprisingly, Chavez wore glittering necklaces and a tall hat identical to what Beyoncé wore in her music video, but with an American emblem design. The series will be written by another Latina, Gabby Rivera.


Entertainment Weekly reported that Chavez first appeared in “Young Avengers” in 2011 alongside Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau. As expected, she has the marvelous ability to soar up in the sky and open portals through dimensions by her kick.

The second issue of “America” featuring Beyoncé-inspired outfit will rule bookshelves across the US in April.

Aside from Queen Bey, many iconic looks of international pop stars were redesigned for amusement, books and other forms of entertainment. Ariana Grande’s character “Dangerous Woman,” clothed in a latex bunny costume, was included in the lineup of Square Enix’s role-playing game “Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius.”  Gianna Francesca Catolico
