Created by professional illustrator and designer Vincent Aseo, this Darna artwork has been going viral in social media, with 2,100 reactions and 800 shares.

According to Aseo, he created this poster to be "symbolic of the modern Darna, focusing on Liza's beauty and character instead of the usual sexy route."

He added that this interpretation represents an empowered and strong archetype of the Pinay superhero.

Self-proclaimed movie fanatic Edgar Torres Jr. also created his own Darna poster, which he said depicts Soberano as the Darna of the modern generation. His artwork wowed many Facebook users.

He was inspired by the idea of seeing Soberano on comics. "I depicted her as how Darna should look -- someone physically strong yet beautiful and inspiring," he added.
