Makati City mayor Jejomar Binay is jumping on the hero bandwagon. Not only does he wear Cory yellow in this campaign comic book, he’s an actual comic book hero with a power fist and everything.
And why not? If Sen. Escudero can save the country with magic spells, then Jojo Binay as Luke Cage, Power Man makes absolute sense.
Further in the dumbing down of the Filipino electorate and treating them like teenagers, expect Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro, Jr. to come out as some sort of Captain America clone. Sgt.Filipinas, maybe. Or Major Republic. Or, more aptly, Captain I-love-America.
Former President Joseph Estrada is Tony Stark, obviously. He’s rich, has a mustache, is a lady’s man, and likes to drink. His running for the presidency under a pro-poor, anti-corruption plaform after being ousted in 2001 for corruption also provides us with our 100% RDA of iron.
Sen. Benigno Aquino III can be Batman. At least in the sense that his life is haunted by the legacy of his dead parents. Sen. Richard Gordon can be his Harvey Dent.
As the popular facebook avatar picture states, where I come from, everyone is a hero.
