ASERO


Created by veteran writer/artist Rod Santiago, Asero ("Steel") first appeared in Ace Superheroes #5 (June 29, 1995), published by Adventures Illustrated Magazines, Inc.

"MAN OF STEEL TALAGA.
HINDI NGA LANG SIYA LUMILIPAD."


Hector Zuniga is a private detective leading a double life. Whenever he shouts "Asero, ngayon!" ("Asero, now!"), he transforms into the super-strong, seemingly-indestructable crimefighter, Asero.

  1. He should have included goggles as a part of his costume. Duh.

    Rod Santiago did his fair share of superheroes. I hope you get to feature Balbon. Now that was a very weird superhero(ine).

  2. Considering he sometimes wore metal trunks, maybe his eyes weren't his only weak spot.

    I know of Balbon, but unfortunately, I don't have any of her comics. Yeah, she was weird, she got her powers from her body hair. Kinda grossed me out, maybe that's why I didn't buy her comic.
