Marvel 80 Years at SM Celebrates With The New Filipina Super Hero, Wave

Growing up exposed to superheroes stuff was one of my childhood memories. It let my imagination translate into creativity, where I used to draw Marvel characters in my notebook. Until I grew up at my adulthood stage, I’m still an avid fan of superheroes by watching Marvel Movies and still reading comics online. My favorite Marvel movie would be Captain America, Civil War, because of the concept of having temporary enemies, conflict and mismatched beliefs of colleagues that can be applicable in real life. It gave me a good moral lesson to be on my right decision and to earn how to respect ideas. At the end of the day, we use our values to spread peace and unity for the sake of goodwill and friendship. As a whole, each superhero of Marvel Comics has a good lesson for everyone.


As part of Marvel’s 80th-anniversary celebrations in the Philippines, The Walt Disney Company Philippines, together with SM Supermalls, welcomes Marvel’s Filipina Superhero, Wave. Wave’s new addition to the Marvel Universe will be celebrated at SM Seaside City Cebu last September 1, 2019, across gaming, comics, and special merchandise.
