Another piece inspired by the Philippines glorious komiks past. Zuma is a character created by jim Fernandez in the late 70′s, and was translated into film by the early to mid 80s (it’s apparent I cant remember the exact year hehe). Although you can get more information about him here
His archnemesis (I guess) is his own daughter, Galema. And She also had snakes around her neck which carry venom deadly even to her own father. Her father’s snakes are more like constrictors btw, and if memory serves they actually don’t have venom.
I hold Zuma as one of Philippines most interesting supervillains, having a 2 headed snake atop his shoulders is to me a very original concept as I haven’t seen any other character like him. It would be great to have this character revived along with the sleeping local comics industry.
I am one of the unfortunate individuals who were born when komiks had started to dwindle.
