Dusted off from the old komiks our parents used to enjoy, ABS-CBN brings to life one of the most bizarre superhero within the vast collection of acclaimed comic book creator Mars Ravelo.

If size does matter to the ladies, well then, they will get one hell of a kick outta’ this superhero. He has large hands and large feet, and you know what they say about men with large hands and feet...So play up your imagination because after the fiery Dragonna, here comes Flash Bomba!

Tagged as the “Superhero for all Seasons”, Flash Bomba stars Luis Manzano as the famed crime fighter who loves the spotlight, hence the Superhero for all seasons tag (plus the fact that Luis is the son of the Star for all Seasons, and now the elected Batangas Governor, Vilma Santos-Recto). Flash Bomba is the last of the Ravelo superheroes which comprises the much anticipated Isang Lakas super team, due this 2009 on Primetime Bida.

Flash Bomba is likened to Batman, the enigmatic Dark Knight of DC Comics, for both their origins are the same. Both their past are marked by a death which gave them the drive and will to make a difference in the world. Although Flash Bomba’s origin is folkloric, a given among Asian superheroes, the journey each took to be the superhero the world expects are similar.

Comedy is a staple of the Komiks brand so expect a lot of humorous encounters and situations in which Flash Bomba will find himself in. The once thought dead pinoy superhero genre has now pulled itself out of the grave and found the strength to again fly and this time invade our TV screens. Flash Bomba will be aired in February although the exact date is yet to be announced. Looks like the men and women in tights and capes are here to stay!

  1. flash bomba's story is nothing like batman. his story is also very compelling. he loves cars and then he was in an accident that cost him his legs. he became depressed and hated the world but then changed and trained his body to move without the use of his legs.

    then when he was in the province, he heard of a story where a tikbalang roams. remembering stories that tikbalang grants the wish of their conqueror, he sets out to look for the tikbalang.

    he fought the tikbalang wihtout the use of his legs, and won. he ask for powers, which the tikbalang granted but with a jest. got super powers to boot but with big hands and feet. enabling him to walk in his hero person.
