Zsazsa Zaturnnah (full name: Ang Kagila-gilalas na Pakikipagsapalaran ni Zsazsa Zaturnnah, translated to The Spectacular Adventures of Zsazsa Zaturnnah) is a cult-favorite superhero comic from the Philippines. The story follows Ada, a gay man, who comes in contact with a large, spikey meteor which, when ingested, turns him into the Wonder Woman-esque superheroine Zsazsa Zaturnnah. Zsazsa soon finds herself in conflict with the man-hating Queen Femina from Planet XXX and her fellow Amazonistas. The writer, Carlo Vergara, is writing the sequel, Zsazsa Zaturnnah sa Kalakhang Maynila (Zsazsa Zaturnnah in Metro Manila)

The comic spawned a stage musical and, later, a feature film starring BB Gandanghari (as Ada), Zsazsa Padilla (as Zsazsa Zaturnnah) and Pops Fernandez (as Queen Femina).
