MANILA - The family of Pinoy Komiks legend Mars Ravelo, the creator of Darna, could not be happier that Liza Soberano will be the one to continue the legacy of the superheroine. 

At Toy Con Philippines 2017 Saturday, Rex Ravelo, son of the komiks legend, presented the first four pages of the original "Darna" comic to the Kapamilya actress as a token.

The comic was first published in the 1940s.

The framed pages had the handwritten message: "Marami-rami na ring kamay ang dinaanan ng mahiwagang bato… At sa tagal ng paghahanap ikaw ang mapalad na napili para magpatuloy ng galing at tapang ni Darna. Maraming salamat sa pagtanggap." 

Soberano will portray Darna in the upcoming Star Cinema adaptation, to be directed by Erik Matti.
