The Triumph Division is a team of fictional superhero characters in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The group debuted in Invincible Iron Man #2 (June 2008). They were created by writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larroca.

Fictional Biography[edit]

The Triumph Division is the premier super group of the Philippines. In the Philippines, super hero names are passed down from generation to generation along familial lines. The members of the Triumph Division train from birth to eventually assume the mantle of their predecessor.[1] One incarnation of the Triumph Division was recently killed during a terror attack perpetrated by agents of Ezekiel Stane disguised as monks.[2] Iron Man, as Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., attended the funeral of one of the Triumph Division members, as did Thor. Weeks later, Iron Man visited the new Triumph Division at the Triumph Hall, the successors of those killed in the suicide bombing, after which he declared that "the Philippines are in good hands." [3]

Members[edit]

Red Feather[edit]

Red Feather is an apparent counterpart of Superman, his powers include superhuman strength, super speed and flight. The new Red Feather is now a girl counterpart probably with the same powers.

St. George[edit]

St. George takes his name from Saint George of Lydda. St. George's abilities include superhuman strength, a high-tech sword and armour which also gives him the ability of flight. It is confirmed in Invincible Iron Man #4 that he had a son with an unknown character.

Mighty Mother[edit]

Anitun[edit]

Anitun takes her name from the goddess Anitun Tabu (Filipino: Anitong Tabo) from Philippine Mythology. She presumedly has wind– and rain–based powers like her namesake deity. Anitun is hinted as being divine because Thor attended her funeral; and is discussed in a brief conversation with Iron Man.

Fighter One[edit]

The Wishing Man[edit]

The Wishing Man apparently has the ability to alter reality using verbal "wishes" (also seen in Invincible Iron Man #2, June 2008).

The Great Mongoose[edit]
