It can only be assumed that the octopus behind her is a friend, perhaps her underwater mount, judging from her amused expression.
What mystery surrounds the character, we have yet to find out. But according to the comic book giant, the Filipina will be teaming up with other superheroes hailing from China named Aero and Sword Master. The two latter characters will also be making their Marvel debut.
Destined for Greatness
Pak, a Korean-American who is also a filmmaker, is no stranger to blockbuster comic book series as evident with one of the best-selling Marvel comics like the “Planet Hulk” and the “World War Hulk” series.
We could only assume that with him at the helm, Wave and the rest of the new Marvel superheroes hailing from Asia will reach greater success in mainstream comics.
A Fair Share of Popularity
Wave won’t be the only Filipino hero to be introduced in major comic book franchises.
In 2008, for example, a group of Filipino superheroes called the Triumph Division was introduced in “Invincible Iron Man” Vol. 2 series.
Over at DC Comics, there are also a handful of notable Filipino characters joining the fray. Among the most popular include Salvador Joel Alonday. Not so flashy of a name but Alonday is a Filipino Scout Ranger who possesses energy blast-type powers called the Grail.
