BULALAKAW

Bulalakaw ("Meteor") blazed through the pages of Kidlat Super Heroes Komiks (published by Sonic Triangle Publishing, Inc.) from 1993 to 1994. The series was written by Jeric Salonga, with art by Ariel Padilla, and later, by Luisito Antonio.



TWO RINGS TO RULE THEM ALL



Marko San Diego was an archaeologist who discovered a pair of mystical golden rings embedded within the remains of a crashed meteor. Now, whenever he presses the twin rings together, he transforms into the golden-clad guardian of good known as Bulalakaw.




POWER RINGS


Bulalakaw possesses superhuman strength and speed, invulnerability, and the power of flight. His rings are capable of projecting fire, energy blasts and force fields. He is also seen to have telekinesis and heightened senses.






ENEMIES

KADILIMAN ("DARKNESS")

Bulalakaw's arch nemesis, the living embodiment of evil and darkness in the universe.



A shape-shifter, Kadiliman has also faced Bulalakaw under a number of guises, such as a super-powered "demonic alien" and the mad scientist Dr. Karzov.


 TAONG BATO ("ROCK MAN")
One of Kadiliman's minions, a creature made out of solid rock.

 GORDON
A thug transformed by "Dr. Karzov" into a super-powered being to take down Bulalakaw.

SKULLIBOR
An undead skull-faced swordsman who rises from the grave to challenge Bulalakaw to a duel.

THE KING OF SATURN

The mysterious ruler of the sixth planet from the Sun, he plots to have Bulalakaw eliminated.

ZATURKO
A prisoner from the planet Saturn and a reluctant assassin sent by his king to destroy Bulalakaw.

LUCARIA

Another Saturnian convict, the most beautiful and most dangerous woman on her world. Lucaria derives her power from her uncontrollable anger.



GUEST STARS

On one occasion, Bulalakaw joined forces with fellow Kidlat Komiks heroes Kampeon, Elektro, and (of course) Kidlat in battling Kadiliman.
