Darna! The Evolution of a Superheroine

TV Star Guide (Later Atlas TV Guide), May 2005
On the cover: Constantine Maroulis and Bo Bice

This article, “Darna! The Evolution of a Superheroine” (pp. 14-15) was written barely a month after the hit GMA 7 television series Darna, which starred Angel Locsin. Had the publisher and editor used a Darna/Angel Locsin cover instead of the one above like what I suggested, the magazine would have sold like hotcakes. An updated version can be read on my blog, DARNA: The Original Filipino Superheroine. Furthermore, in The Untold Beginning of Darna.

“Many a woman shows how gifted she is; but you excel them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting; but the woman who fears the LORD is honoured.” – Proverbs 21:29-30, The Revised English Bible.
