There’s so much to angst about when you’re living in the Philippines: hours wasted on traffic, corrupt politician who put the people’s money into their own pockets instead of using it to find solutions to our nation’s problems, and so on. Sometimes it makes us wish our country had a resident superhero (or two or five) to keep these things in check.
Read our list of top superheroes we wish lived in the Philippines. And share which caped crusaders you’d like to see gracing our streets—or skies!
Okay, so maybe he’s not a superhero. But he does occasionally fight on the good guys’ side. can you just imagine having him around when the MRT goes down? No problem. Get Magneto on the job.
4. Batman and Robin
These should be the only guys riding in tandem on our streets!
3. Wonder Woman
Which kurakot politician would we ask her to use her lasso of truth on first?

If you grew up watching Captain Planet and the Planeteers, you probably thought Ma-Ti was a wuss. But the truth is, his ring was probably the most powerful. It helps link humans to the spirit of the earth, and it is used against heartless people to help them learn caring and see reason. If only he could use that ring on many of our politicians!
The truth is that it’s up to us to choose good leaders and do our part to keep our country clean (in more ways than one), green, honest, and moving toward a better future. But it sure would be nice to have a superhero helping things along!
