Hey guys... i just want to share some of my country... The Philippines... version of Stan Lee.. The King of Filipino Comics... Mr. Carlo J. Caparas... and Mr. Mars Ravelo.. here's a little info about him...

After a meteorite falls from the sky, Flavio, a noble blacksmith, forges its ore into a dagger (balaraw in Filipino), which magically turns into a sword when he raises it and points to the sky. He uses this sword to fight the evil Lizardo and his supernatural minions, and other evil forces.
Flavio is a normal human and has no special powers or skills, except for his swordsmanship. He uses his magical sword to fight his supernatural enemies. The sword hums when danger is near and the dagger can cut through anything without resistance. The film Panday uses a shield on occasion, which is likewise forged from a meteorite.
Besides Flavio's love interest, he has a boy sidekick and an old hermit-like adviser. He wears a red vest and dark pants.
Joaquin knows that his old boss, General Russo (Eddie Garcia), will do everything to kill him since he knows vital information about the secret group. While serving time in jail, he meets Jilco (Pen Medina), a mysterious man whose body is littered with tattoos.
Unknown to Joaquin, one of his fellow inmates is actually an assassin sent by General Russo to kill him. But the hero of the story won't remain dead for long, as Jilco revives Joaquin and gives him all his powerful tattoos.
With his new powers, Joaquin gets a new lease in life and faces challenges as the chosen heir who will continue the battle between good and evil.
"Gagambino" is the superhero story of a young man named Bino and his adventures with his giant spider as they fight evil forces in a darker, crime-infested re-imagination of Manila .Bino and his group of friends, all possessing insect-like superpowers like him, are pitted against Abresia, a terrorist mastermind and a very powerful woman who can command giant insects.
Mars Ravelo was born on October 9,1916 when the Philippines was still American Territory. Mars went through a life of hardship and dropped out of high school, vowing to be number one in whatever he did. Mars started out as a cartoonist, then as a writer, and later on as editor -in- chief for two major publications houses and even for several film companies. Ravelo was the highest paid comic writer during his time. He later established his own company, RAR, to give him more elbow room with more obras. Mars Ravelo used to say that he wanted to impart " the highest form of values to the lowest tier of our society with the lowest form of literature"
His contributions to the Filipino art world are quite remarkable. Some of his achievements are the classic fantasy of Darna the super heroine, Dyesebel the love-lorn mermaid, and Kaptain Barbel the super hero. Furthermore, he also created another classic drama about a young orphaned girl named Roberta. The movie was a huge success that made Sampaguita Pictures one of the biggest film outfitz in the 50's. Vilma Santos starred in "Trudis Liit" and became an instant hit. Not to mention the unforgettable award-winning movie adaptation of Alicia Vergel's Basahang Ginto. An additional feather to his hat is the controversial film about a homosexual in Lea productions, Tubog sa Ginto, another comic's adaptation. And who can forget the love story of Maruja which was also immortalized on silver screen several times. Not only Mars Ravelo made us cry and played our imagination through his fantasy creations, but he also tickled our funny bones with Facifica Falayfay, and the lovable duo of Jack & Jill. His creations are his legacy to the world.
here are some of his creations who were made TV shows...

In December 2004, David S. Goyer was attached to write and direct a superhero film based on the fictional DC Comics character The Flash. Goyer expressed interest in having actor Ryan Reynolds portray Wally West, with Reynolds expressing his own interest in the role. In June 2005, Goyer was still developing the first script draft for The Flash and had yet to finalize negotiations with Reynolds. In February 2007, Goyer departed from the project, citing creative differences with the studio. Goyer's script was considered dark-themed, including both Barry Allen and Wally West as The Flash and drawing on seminal comicbook runs by Mike Baron, Mark Waid, and Geoff Johns.
Later in February 2007, director Shawn Levy was announced to be attached to The Flash and to oversee the writing of the new draft, which would use elements of Goyer's script. Ryan Reynolds expressed interest in the role once more of The Flash if the new script's incarnation was Wally West.
In October 2007, director David Dobkin said that he was signed on to direct The Flash, replacing Shawn Levy. Dobkin said that the film would work as a spin-off from the upcoming Justice League of America film. He said that the incarnation of the Flash would be Wally West. In the February 08 issue of Wizard the Flash was placed for a 2008 release date. However, this obviously fell through as well.
