For [personal profile] blackruzsa, who requested any of a series of moments mentioned in an article entitled "The Balut in a Superhero's Underpants".

It says that "[i]f the Americans have their Easter Eggs, we Filipinos have our Balut Eggs. (Okay, I just made up that term, but it seems appropriate anyway.) Balut Eggs are those moments when Filipinos (or something Pinoy) suddenly pops up in foreign movies, TV shows, novels, and comic books."

It goes on to list several of those moments that appear in American comic books. I was intrigued by one of them - in Marvel Comics’ “Agents of Atlas,” Mt. Pinatubo erupts again and Sentry flies in just in time to rescue a damaged Phivolcs helicopter - so I went to do a little digging and to my surprise, I found I had it.

Three and approximately 3/4ths scans from Dark Reign Agents of Atlas #1. Written by Jeff Parker, pencilled by Carlo Pagulayan (a Filipino artist, as the article notes), coloured by Jana Schirmer.

And here's the page [personal profile] blackruzsa wanted.

It's interesting - I guess I didn't quite understand what I was seeing when I first read the page, because I didn't remember it right away when I saw the sentence about it in the article. I had to look through my Dark Reign trade to see when Bob Reynolds could have gone to the Philippines...and also to have another look at the volcano erupting. I thought 'surely I'd have remembered that if I'd read it!' But no, apparently I hadn't. The author of that article certainly seems to have had an eye for particular detail, though - or else they must have had a keen spotter working for/writing to them.

So there you are, [personal profile] blackruzsa! I hope you enjoyed it. :)

Me too. She kind of reminds me of classic Mary Marvel - sweet and innocent, but don't try to push her around.
