No other woman impresses in a red two-piece, star-studded bikini better than Mars Ravelo's legendary superheroine Darna. As she takes flight for another round of small-screen ass-kicking adventures tonight, we at fhm.com.ph pay tribute to the five best actresses ever to patrol the skies as Dar-naaaah!
Vilma Santos: Lipad, Darna, Lipad! (1973), Darna and the Giants (1974), Darna vs The Planet Women (1976) and Darna and Ding (1979)
Ate Vi first donned the costume as a then 19-year-old teen sensation, earning her the distinction of being the youngest actress to ever portray the mouthwatering high-flyer.

But with curves, which would years later be further toned with demanding dancing chores in the top-rating variety show V.I.P. (Vilma in Person), tapping the Star For All Seasons for the part was a no-brainer.

Darna Trivia: During the press conference for Lipad, Darna, Lipad, the award-winning actress was so nervous about meeting reporters only in her costume that she wanted to wear body stockings underneath the famed Darna garb.
