The GMA Network's new fantasy series, Victor Magtanggol, will be airing this Monday, July 30. It will feature Alden Richards as the titular character. Andrea Torres, Janine Gutierrez, John Estrada, among others, will co-star with Alden on the show. Former Game Of Thrones star Conan Stevens will be guest starring as Thor.
To be fair to the shows creators, the Norse Mythos is in the public domain, which means that it's free for anyone's interpretation and use. But when the teasers first came out, many people immediately compared him to one of Marvel's most well known superheroes in the comics and on the big screen who also weilds a hammer and has a cape and is inspired by Norse mythology.
But what sets apart Victor Magtanggol's character from Thor is that Victor has an unbelievably terrible superhero identity. Yes, Victor Magtanggol is just his secret identity. When the world needs saving, Victor takes his hammer and puts on his costume to become... Hammerman. Yes, you heard that right. This, of course, became the butt of jokes and memes, and netizens were dishing it all out.
