Director Hawkeye confirms what we suspected about Maya’s true superpowers

While Maya Lopez’s MCU run has only just begun, so far, we’ve had the chance to learn a lot about her in her first few appearances. Her father was a Mafia Tracksuit member, whom Ronin apparently killed, spurring her on revenge to stick with the family business. Not to mention, she has a mystery “Uncle” who seems quite familiar though he didn’t reveal his face in a cameo in “Echoes.” Most notable, however, is the fact that she is deaf and has only one leg – disabilities that make Echo such a powerful character.

“It’s her superpower. Everything she’s learned in life is rooted in what we consider a disability… but that’s why she kicked her ass,” Bert and Bertie speak TVLine, on the grounds that she has the ability to greatly develop despite her own disability as a superpower. They added that when they learned that Alaqua Cox was wearing a prosthetic leg, instead of hiding it, they chose to show it off. “It was like, ‘Oh, that can really add to the sublime nature of [Maya]. ‘ She’s a hero. Alaqua is a real-life hero, and what she’s overcome in her life is truly reflected in Maya’s story. “

With three more “Hawkeye” seasons to come and a series of her own on the way, Echo is sure to get even more opportunities to portray her villainous role in the future. Director Hawkeye confirms what we suspected about Maya’s true superpowers
