OMG! Nadine Lustre, the inspiration for Marvel's Wave

Nadine Lustre just keeps on breaking the glass ceiling.

One of the Marvel artists who designed Wave, Mico Suayan went on Facebook early this morning, April 4, and revealed that he based his rendition of the first Filipina superhero on the actress' powerful morena beauty. Take a look here:

The news came after Wave's Marvel Comics exclusive limited edition cover debut, ahead of her appearance on the upcoming War of Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1.

Another creator, Leinil Yu had voiced his interest for Angel Locsin to play Wave back in March, a month after Wave was announced to the public. The Action Drama Queen gracefully declined because while flattered, she's "finished with superhero roles", an obvious nod to her stint bringing Mars Ravelo's Darna to life.

Another Filipina icon Pia Wurtzbach also expressed an interest in taking on Wave, telling her Instagram followers, "Why not? A girl can dream." The beauty queen-actress also has some experience in the superhero realm after playing Gandarra in "The Revenger Squad."
