By TheSeventies, the local comic book industry was one of the best-organized comic book industries in the world. During that time, both Creator/MarvelComics and Creator/DCComics started importing Filipino artists. Tony de Zuñiga (aka Tony [=deZuniga=]), co-creator of ''ComicBook/JonahHex'', and Nestor Redondo, co-creator of local heroine ''ComicBook/{{Darna}}'', were the first to move. They were followed by Alfredo Alcala, Alex Niño, Ernie Chan (aka Ernie Chua), Celso "Sonny" Trinidad and others. These artists worked in various genres as pencillers, inkers or both - not only on superheroes but also western, war, horror and sword-and-sorcery titles such as DC's ''House of Mystery'' and ''House of Secrets'' and Marvel's ''[[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Savage Sword of Conan]]''. However, by 1985, about a third of upcoming artists were working for Marvel and DC, which naturally weakened the local comic book industry to near-irrelevancy in the 1990s.

The current president of the Philippines is UsefulNotes/RodrigoDuterte, elected in 2016 after a tumultuous campaign where he started as the dark-horse candidate. Immediately prior, he was mayor of Davao City and extremely controversial for his tough stance against crime, [[WellIntentionedExtremist bordering on support for outright vigilantism]], which has skyrocketed on a nationwide scale ever since he assumed office. This has earned him the [[RedBaron nickname]] "ComicBook/ThePunisher" by Time Magazine. He's also notorious for [[SirSwearsALot his potty mouth]] and his jokes which range from CrossesTheLineTwice to DudeNotFunny, leading to comparisons with Creator/DonaldTrump. However, the issue where he gets slammed the most is his foreign policy, which so far consists of deteriorating relations with long-time ally US and tilting towards (what Filipinos perceive as an enemy) China, a complete 180-degree shift from the previous president's actions. All of these make him a [[{{Understatement}} really]] [[BaseBreakingCharacter polarizing figure]], with his policies and strong pronouncements driving the country into what could be seen as an [[FlameWar online civil war]] between his supporters and detractors, with neither side backing down.
