INTRODUCING BADINGGER-Z: The Fabulous Rainbow Crusader of this World, The Universe Rather

In a vibrant blaze of color and courage, a new superhero emerges to captivate audiences and champion the fight against oppression. Badingger-Z, adorned in a dazzling rainbow cape, is set to become the beacon of hope for the small town of Santo Tomas, written for comicbook by award-winning filmmaker Real S. Florido.

In the debut volume, Badingger-Z and the Accla Assassin,” audiences are introduced to Ading, a timid teenager who, wearied by bullying at a military campus, returns home with an unwavering vow never to return to the academy. Unraveling the mysteries guarded by his adaptive mother, Ading stumbles upon a mysterious particle in the forbidden woods, transforming him into Badingger-Z—a rainbow-surfing superhuman with unparalleled strength. As the Cyborgas launch an assault on his hometown, Badingger-Z emerges as the indispensable defender, facing not only the half-human half-robot attackers but also the enigmatic mastermind of the chaos—the Accla Assassin.

Crafted by the award-winning film director Real S. Florido, this project marks an exhilarating chapter in storytelling. Florido emphasizes the significance of Badingger-Z as a superhero representing the LGBTQIA+ community, breaking free from traditional narratives and positioning them as the main characters, transcending sidekick roles and momentary punchlines.

“I believe that a superhero like Badingger-Z is crucial today, representing the LGBTQIA+ community in a story where they are the main characters, not just sidekicks,” asserts Real Florido, injecting a fresh and inclusive perspective into the superhero genre.

Inspired by a college play written by Rommel Dela Cruz and Byron Barinuevo from the university organization Magwayen Creative Scholar’s Guild in Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Badingger-Z’s narrative adopts a deep dive on Filipinos penchant for superhero stories.

The amazing comicbook illustrations are from Alfred Galoroza, a visual artist from Cebu. With additional artwork for the cover art by the young and talented multi-media artist from Davao, Jermaine Tulbo.


One of the most notable elements of the book is its use of “swardspeak” or gay lingo. Real S. Florido envisions that by using this slang the book can create a connection point for people to understand the LGBTQ+ community better. He’d like the readers to ask an LGBTQ+ friend, a gay colleague or even a stranger to help translate the lines and explain its context.

“Badingger-Z and the Accla Assassin” Part 1 of 4 is set for release in four thrilling installment comicbooks. Series #1 is slated to grace shelves on January 19th, with enthusiasts having the opportunity to secure their copies through advance reservations through
