    In my son's copy of The Invincible Iron Man #2, on the stands now, they introduce the Triumph Division, superheroes of the Philippines:

    Red Feather
    St. George
    Mighty Mother
    Anitun
    Fighter One
    The Wishing Man
    The Great Mongoose


    (described as: "The finest heroes the Philippines have to offer..."). Fighter One looked like a karateka to me.

    Sorry to say they're all killed two pages later.

    I just googled some pages. Uh...why does it look the like the Pinoy Super team is greeted by Thai Buddhist Monks? Doesn't Marvel know we're a mostly Catholic country?

    There's a very brief reappearance of (the next iteration of) this group in Invincible Iron Man #4, on the stands now. It talks about what's special about superheroes in the Phil. (a family tradition in a long legacy). They may just "get it" at Marvel!

    Are there Philippines comic book imprints, or do you only get U.S. and Japanese imports?
