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.”
