FLASH BOMBA Sketch Picture

Here's a fan art sketch of FLASH BOMBA. Duy Tano introduced this old komiks character to me. At first, when I heard the name, I just thought that it would be a good comic title. And it was a name of an old komiks character. And I just thought, that this guys must be like a guerilla military superhero or something. Then Duy showed me a link. I was quite intrigued by him that I made a sketch.

Later, I realized that ABS-CBN, a local TV channel adapted him and turned into a min-live action series. I didn't have any knowledge of it coz I don't watch a lot of local TV. And I just don't like the"actor" playing FLASH BOMBA. Saw and used a Gilbert Monsanto sketch as a ref and I just drew on his old costume. Anyway, enjoy.

Powers/Abilities: Flash has superhuman strength, the ability to walk up walls, to generate "thunderclaps" using his large hands or block almost anything with same. In spite of his enlarged extremities, Flash Bomba is not in the least clumsy, and is a skilled unarmed fighter. He can also mystically summon "devil horses" to create a stampede (similar to the way the ghosts did in Lord of the Rings 3).

History: Flash Bomba was man who lost the use of his legs in an accident. Because of this, he trained the rest of his body to an incredible level of athletic ability and did everyday stuff using his hands to compensate for the loss of his ability to walk. Eventually he heard a rumour about a "Tikbalang" (a mythological creature with the body of a man and the head of a horse) who would grant powers to anyone who could defeat it in battle. Flash Bomba challenged the Tikbalang and set a time and place for the battle. He defeated it despite his physical limitations and the Tikbalang granted him superpowers. But as a jest, the Tikbalang gave him powers that made him look awkward. Flash was given the Tikbalang's magic hair, said talisman allowing Flash to transform into his super-powered version - a being with large hands and feet, as well as superhuman powers. Using his new abilities, he became a crimefighter.
