Wave, Marvel’s first Filipina Superhero, steals all the attention in a promotional video released by Marvel this week. The video is for Marvel’s popular mobile game, Marvel Future Fight, a role-playing game (RPG) that uses over 200 Marvel characters.

Wave’s appearance in the clip may signify Marvel’s intention of turning Wave into a major character in the Marvel Universe. She appears as the main character in the video and the poster at the end of the clip. She's also joined by the Silver Surfer, one of the most iconic Marvel superheroes, and Namor, the King of Atlantis. 

The three superheroes are being introduced in the game in celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary.

Wave, whose real name is Pearl Pangan, is a Filipina of Visayan heritage. Her powers include controlling the sea, creating powerful waves, and other water-based abilities, indicating that she could be part-Atlantean. She also wields turquoise blades and has retractable blade fins. 

Hopefully, Wave turns out to be one of the most powerful and promising superheroes in the Marvel Universe. Let’s cross our fingers that she makes it to the cinematic universe (a long shot, but hey).
