Background

The Americano is a latino superheroine who works with the A-Men. During a trip to Sydney she encountered the Southern Cross and The Dingo, and there was a bit of interest displayed between her and the former of those heroes.

The Southern Squadron was sent to deal with this abuse of immigration laws, and after a battle convinced the A-Men to try New Zealand instead.
