Comic book artist confirms he based Pinay Marvel hero Wave from Nadine Lustre

Marvel provided a sneak peek of the newest Filipina superhero Wave in March. The comic book cover was created by artists Mico Suayan and Rain Bredo. Mico confirmed that his rendition was based on Filipina actress Nadine Lustre.

Last Thursday, local comic book shop Comic Odyssey shared the cover on its Facebook page. The post showed Wave carrying a weapon with the Philippine flag as background.

The post was captioned with:
