Interview with Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez:

My older brother  Axel first introduced me to the Amazing Spider-Man, he was a conduit to introduce a lot of new characters to me, like the White Tiger, which was Marvel's first Puerto Rican super-hero character created by fellow Puerto Rican, George Perez.

(...)

It led me to meet and work with George Perez, my favorite artist of all time.  He's just an amazing storyteller. From creating close to 60 plus characters for DC and Marvel. He was fascinated by the character, fascinated by the costume design, the fact that it was asymmetrical. Jokingly telling me that he always drew Wonder Woman as a Puerto Rican when he was drawing her.
