Comic book writer Greg Pak took to Twitter to reveal the first look at the superhero, whose name is Wave.
As announced at @sxsw, I'm thrilled to share the great @leinilyu's stunning design of WAVE, Marvel's new Filipino superhero! Gorgeous colors by @sunnygho!

Drawn by Leinil Yu and colored by Sunny Gho, Wave is shown in a black, aqua, and gold ensemble, and wielding some sort of crystal sword underwater.
According to Pak, Wave will appear in War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1 in May, along with Chinese heroes Aero and Sword Master, who are also making their Marvel debut.
Before Wave, Marvel also debuted the Triumph Divison – a supergroup from the Philippines that debuted in Invincible Iron Man #2 in June 2008. – Rappler.com
