It seems like Marvel isn’t done representing Filipinas just yet. Right after Wave, another Pinay superhero is going to debut in the Marvel Comics!

Last July 26, Greg Pak, who co-created Wave, announced on his official Twitter that a new “awesome” Filipina superhero is going to be introduced this September in the third issue of Aero. Half-Filipina writer Alyssa Wong and artist Pop Mhan are set to introduce the character with Pak.
Hot tip comics collectors: @crashwong, @popmhan and I are introducing ANOTHER brand new Filipina superhero in AERO #3. And she is awesome. Do not miss this — preorder the book today with your local comic book shop!

Wong was tasked by Marvel Comics to write Wave’s backstory. She has a Nebula Award, a Locus Award, and a World Fantasy Award under her belt.
It’s an exciting time for comic book fans. There’s a certain kind of pride that comes with seeing yourself represented in a major publication such as Marvel. The diversity in the creative teams are really reflected on the page and we can’t wait to see what more they have in store!
What kind of powers do you think the new Pinay superhero has?
