As Promised, Happy Halloween Everyone

As promised on the flipside of this  blog, here is Valentina:

Valentina or snake woman is the arch enemy of Darna.  Darna is a popular TV series now, played by Marian Rivera.  The number one villain, Valentina,  used to be her childhood best friend.  Valentina is played by Iwa Moto. Several other local actresses played Valentina before - Alessandra de Rossi, Celia Rodriguez, Pilar Pilapil, and Pilita Corales. 

Doesn't it sound familiar, your best friend could be your worst enemy.  
See useful websites where I got these info: and

Once thought of as the daughter of a farmer named Mulong and his wife- Ising, Narda is really the biological daughter of Mulong's Half-Sister, Prospera and her true love- Rafael.

When Prospera was pregnant with Narda she discovered a space craft that had crashed on her land one fateful evening. As she approached the craft, a dying alien (An Anomalkan) emerged and transported the seed within the alien's belly into the already pregnant Prospera.

The Anomalkan fled to earth in the hope of escaping the massacare of infants ordered by Queen Braguda of the Anomalka race.

Braguda's rampage was in response to a prophecy that predicted her death one day at the hands of another Anomalkan.   To prevent the prohecy from coming to pass, 

Braguda ordered the slaughter of all Anomalkan infants that could oppose her one day.  But one Anomalkan managed to escape the planet Marte and in doing so crash landed on Earth- a planet that could not sustain Anomalkans.

To help bring about the fulfilment of the prophecy, the fugitive Anomalkan transfered the seed of life growing within  by using a bizarre form of teleportation  and somehow bonded it to the womb of an Earth female named  Prospera. Under its new host, the 

Anomalkan infant would stand a better chance of surviving in Earth's atmosphere since it would turn out to be a hybrid of the 2 bloodlines.

After being made into a host for the alien seed, Prospera now carried 2 babies- one completely human (a product of her relationship with Rafael) and the other- a monstrous Anomalkan humanoid.

When Prospera gave birth, she discovered her human child to be perfectly normal and horrified at her alien one. Prospera carried her alien child to the spaceship in the hopes of killing it there but when the child suddenly shapeshifted to resemble a normal Earth-child, Prospera took it back home.

When she returned, her normal baby had disappeared. (who unknown to her was stolen by her brother Mulong to replace his wife's own baby who died in birth). Prospera who planned to name her human child "Valentina" now gave this name to her alien baby.

Mulong named the baby he stole "Narda" after the true Baby Narda who had died and had been replaced. Narda would discover her true origin years later after she defeats  Braguda and thwart the Anomalkan invasion.

Darna fans, is this the  Darna version of Angel Locsin or Marian Rivera?  I seldom watch Darna and I am not sure if they are following this script.

Dear gentle reader, what costume are you donning this Halloween?
