MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s official. DC Comics has created a new superheroine — Leni, The Pinay Wonderwoman.  It is based on the biographical sketch of vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo.

The new comic book is the third to be released in the Philippines, inspired by the 2016 elections.

Earlier, Marvel released a comic book based on the heroic adventures of presidential candidate Mar Roxas.  It followed an earlier comic book of yet another Pinoy superhero, Bongbong, depicting the true-to-life story of Ferdinand Marcos, Jr., who is running for vice president.

We have not received any word on whether the other presidential and vice presidential candidates will have their own comic books released before the May 9 elections which could very well become a comic convention that will surely draw millions of superhero fans here and overseas. image

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Korina Sanchez, broadcast journalist and wife of presidential candidate Mar Roxas was criticized for distrubuting some P611 Million in checks and farm equipment during an official event of the Department of Agriculture (DA) in Tagum City last month. Peter Laviña, spokesperson of presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, considered it a conflict of interest for Sanchez to do so because she was not an employee of the DA. Others saw it as a campaign gimmick for Roxas and the administration’s Liberal Party.

Well, Sanchez took the criticism to heart.

She has gone from distributing checks to distributing comic books featuring her hero husband.
