...whats the common physical feature that all Hispanics share that tells you they are Hispanic?
You should re-read my post. This is pretty much the opposite of what I said. Lots of Hispanics aren't immediately identifiable as Hispanics. This goes for Jews, Italians.... lots of ethnicities. Hell, I don't look Jewish. But I acknowledge that lots of people do.
I don't know a damn thing about Alba, whether she's half this or whole that, or what have you. But when she was playing Sue Richards (and I don't think I've seen her in anything else) she looked Hispanic, whether she is or not.
I don't know why you've seized on this, when I pointed out there were tons of problems with her portrayal of the character (worst of which was that she is just a terrible actress).

And to try to veer back to the topic, Lois should have dark hair. And yes, Lana must always be a redhead.
Because someone posted this:

Though, of course, the movie seemed to go with a whole change of ethnicity, but that's another issue...
and this

This actress was obviously Hispanic. I didn't even know who she was before seeing the movie, and my first reaction to her upon seeing the film is "why is Sue Hispanic... and her brother not?"
and this

This actress was very obviously Hispanic. You don't have to grow up in a Spanish neighborhood (as I did) to be distrscted it. Of course, by your theory, it was just a lucky guess on my part, since you argue that no one "looks" hispanic.
So what about Alba is "obviously Hispanic"? Nose? Eyes? Mouth? Skull? Jaw? Lips? Ears?
