Hey, don't forget the Phillippines, an unlikely location to be a cradle of superheroism!

Here, check out Darna, the Phillippines Wonder Woman/Captain Marvel created by the unconquerable Mars Ravelo:

A few things to notice:

1) Vilma Santos, the actress that played Darna in the 1970s, is now a congresswoman.

2) According to the site, some of the flying shots obtained in the Darna movies of the 1950s was obtained via wire work with a helicopter. I read that over several times in case I had made a mistake. WHAT? Wow, guess they don't have actors unions in the Phillippines. On the other hand, the blooper reel for this picture must be pretty hilarious.

There's a funny story about another Darna site: when showing it to one of my buddies: he thought after I showed the site to him, that I had gotten a virus onto his machine. To which I responded dryly: "Well, it wouldn't be the first time I went to the Phillippines and got a virus."

"Wait, a startling new development, Black Goliath has ripped Stilt-Man's leg off, and appears to be beating him with it!"
