Posted by Paolo Chikiamco On September - 21 - 2009

Budjette sent out a tweet yesterday that lead me to an interesting post over at (deep breath) When I Read These Novels, I’ll Be Able to Conquer the World which dealt with, amongst other things, why Darna was not inspired by Wonder Woman, but was instead probably our answer to the Marvel Family. The post goes on to talk about other heroes similar to Captain Marvel and co., including Captain Barbel.

Me, I always thought Darna was a rip-off of this sadly forgotten heroine… but what do I know?
