You might have probably heard of it already. But did you know the new Filipino Marvel superheroine is from Cebu?
Launched just last March 8 in time for International Women’s Day, a Marvel comic book writer announced a new comic book superhero — a Filipina named ‘Wave’, who lives in Cebu.
Wave has been described by Marvel as “a mysterious new Filipino heroine.” She has the identifiable Filipino “morena” skin, a green and gold costume, and Philippine-inspired weapons.
Designed and co-created by Filipino comic book artist Leinil Francis Yu, Wave will appear for the first time in the comics “War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1,” the first of four issues.
This will be available at comic book stores by May 2019.
