Marvel introduces Wave, the first original Pinoy Superhero

Marvel will be introducing Wave this May, 2019– the first original Pinoy character to be featured in the company’s crossover events.     The  new superhero from the Philippines created by Greg Pak and  Leinil Francis Yu  is  said to stop the infernal forces of Sindr from conquering Asia   alongside Amadeus Cho and a team of heroes from across the region in the pages of War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas.

Wave is  portrayed as a young morena wearing a black and green wetsuit adorned with golden armor and ethereal green wings.

She wields a pair of similarly glowing emerald blades which bear a resemblance to the laring, a sword with Moro origins.

 

Filipino artist Mico Suayan, one of the illustrators behind  Wave, declared that Filipino actress Nadine Lustre was the inspiration behind the new comic book character.

Nadine Lustre says  “It’s really flattering and it’s such an honor kasi we all know Wave is the very first Filipina character in (Marvel) and I’m really grateful.”
