A Filipino superhero will soon grace the pages of Marvel comic book series “War of the Realms.”
“War of the Realms” is dubbed on the Marvel website as an “epic comics event”—a crossover that involves several Marvel heroes such as the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Wolverine. All these superheroes are out to fight Malekith, the king of the dark elves, who is conquering all realms including Midgard or Earth.
It was revealed on the Marvel website last Friday, Feb. 15, that new heroes will be introduced as the war extends to Asia.
A team called Agents of Atlas, led by Korean-American superhero Amadeus Cho, a.k.a. Brawn, will assemble to help save the world in “War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1.” Joining his team are Chinese Kung-Fu master Shang-Chi, Korean-American heroine Silk and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo.
Newbies will also be seen on the team—and Marvel comics—for the first time: a Filipino heroine named Wave and two Chinese superheroes, Aero and Sword Master.
The comic book series debuts in April. /ra
