It has been only two weeks since its pilot episode, but the much-awaited sequel of the superserye Super Inggo has already revealed some of the juiciest parts of the story. On the November 17 episode of Super Inggo 1.5: Ang Bagong Bangis, the kid Pinoy superhero discovers more about his archenemy.
Strange things have happened to Budong (Makisig Morales) and his loved ones since he found out about his true super identity. Some of his trusted friends were abducted by tikbalangs, giant monsters attacked their town and his Tita Inday was transformed into a homosexual by a group of witches who looked like they were stuck in the ‘80s. He tried moving to another town believing that he will shield his family from harm, until his beloved mother Pacita (Angelu de Leon) meets a new guy, who seems suspicious and too interested about Budong. He also comes face to face with Pacita's mother, Lola Facunda (Liza Lorena) who his Lola Juaning (Nova Villa) saw transform into a snake and who tried to kill him.
Budong realizes that the Legion of Darkness is behind these attacks, and comes to the conclusion that he can't escape from his superhero duties for long. So he goes back to being Super Inggo to save his loved ones and the Power Academy. As he continues to fight evil with his superpowers and his new friends, he will soon discover a dark legacy, and who his worst enemy is. Will this revelation pierce his heart deeper than before?
"More surprises await our viewers in the coming weeks of Super Inggo 1.5," says the show's head writer John Roque. "We will see Budong's struggles in his human life and as a superhero, and each week, we will find out how the Legion of Darkness tries to weaken Budong's greatest power, which is love, by putting gaps in his tight relationship with his family."
Viewers must see each episode because it gets even more exciting as the story unfolds each week. "Hindi na kailangan pang maghintay ng isangfull soap to experience it because with Super Inggo 1.5, in just seven weeks, you'll have a grasp of a 26-week soap," adds Roque.
Super Inggo 1.5: Ang Bagong Bangis airs every Saturday after Cinema FPJ on ABS-CBN.
