Valentina has arrived! Janella Salvador's Regina Vanguardia has finally let loose and transformed into Darna supervillain Valentina.
During the Sept. 1 episode of Mars Ravelo’s Darna, fans finally got to see the big baddie in all her evil glory.
After helping stop a bomber from wreaking havoc at a mall, Regina's frustrations grow as she feels efforts went to waste as she was overshadowed by Darna who saved the day.
Feeling pressure from her dad and worrying about getting framed for the death of businessman/alleged smuggler Alejandro Protacio, the lawyer-vlogger gives in to her anger and the voices in her head.
In the first week of the series, Regina was hit with a green light, causing her to move like a snake and faint.
Salvador donned the character's iconic snake eyes and scaly green skin. Her hair was also medusa-like, with snake tendrils on her head.
As Valentina was finally unveiled, "#DarnaValentina" trended on Twitter, with netizens excited about the villain.
Even Darna actress Jane De Leon joined in the hype, tweeting "Pakagat ako Valentina!"
