news from Marvel : Triumph Division: Pinoy Super Team???

thanks to Budjette Tan of Alamat ML for this breaking news..-

teka…sa Manila, Philippines ba??? or baka ibang Manila yan.


Q: Do other countries have their own super-hero teams?

Joe Quesada: Chris, of course other countries have
super heroes. We’ve seen some of the other heroes and
teams that are active worldwide, including Alpha/Omega
Flight in Canada, the Winter Guard in Russia, MI:13 in
the UK (along with the more covert ClanDestine), and
Big Hero 6 in Japan. INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #2 introduces
the Triumph Division, the super-team of Manila, in
just a few short weeks. And S.H.I.E.L.D. is an
international organization, so they operate on a
global scale, though they’re mostly funded and staffed
at the executive level by Americans.

  2. I read that, and I was really excited when I saw “Manila, The Philippines”, but two pages later… Yeah, just read the issue.

  3. I was really excited when I saw this, but…it makes little sense. Anitun is actually a Tagalog godess, so at least they did a minimal amount of research for that. But buddhist monks at a catholic country’s ceremony? Generic names like fighter one? And everyone, all the civilians, while they looked Filipino they all dressed in white robes.

  4. Anitun is the name of a mythological Godess in Bisyan region she lives in the sky and helds the power to manipulate weather, so perhaps Anitun’s power is Weather or Wind Manipulation like Storm.
