Can’t wait to read this comic!

The legendary Marvel comic book universe is opening its doors to a new super-heroine, a Filipino called Wave. The new character was announced over the weekend at the SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas.

There are little to no information about this new addition to the Marvel family, but we have to say, we love being introduced to more inclusive characters. What is known though, is that Wave is a “mysterious Filipino superhero” who comes from the sea. The super-heroine is set to make her debut in War of the Realms: New Agent of Atlas #1, which will be released in May.

While few details about Wave and her powers have been released, what we do know is that she is a “mysterious Filipino superhero” who comes from the sea. She will make her debut in War of the Realms: New Agent of Atlas #1, which will be released in May.

Moreover, comic book writer Greg Pak, has given fans a first glimpse of what the character will look like on his Twitter. “As announced at @sxsw, I’m thrilled to share the great @leinilyu‘s stunning design of WAVE, Marvel’s new Filipino superhero! Gorgeous colors by @sunnygho! She’ll appear for the first time in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 in May, with art by Gang-Hyuk Lim!”

 

The design for Wave came courtesy of Filipino comic book artist Leinil Francis Yu, who worked alongside imagery colourist Sunny Gho. The heroine will be joined by two other new heroes from China: Sword Master and Aero, and all three of them will battle it out to save the world.

Wave is not the first Filipino character in the Marvel universe, but she is the first new release in more than 10 years. She came after the The Triumph Division, who were a group consisting of Philippines’ finest superheroes.
