LOOK: President Duterte and children as 'The Avengers'

We've seen edited photos of President Rodrigo Duterte and his children in superhero costumes but this one showing them as 'The Avengers' is probably the best.

The Davao's Pride Facebook page posted this picture from Jason Javier on Saturday, July 2.

It shows the First Family as 'The Avengers' (from left to right):

  • Sebastian "Baste" Duterte as Thor;
  • Veronica "Kitty" Duterte as Scarlet Witch;
  • President Duterte as Captain America;
  • Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio as Black Widow; and
  • Vice Mayor Paolo "Pulong" Duterte as Iron Man.

Also in the picture are Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa as The Hulk and Christopher "Bong" Go, Special Assistant to the President, as Hawkeye.

The photo, which went viral over the weekend, garnered more than 25,000 likes and positive reactions and was shared nearly 12,000 times as of 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Not all of those who saw the First Family's edited picture are happy though.

Facebook user Rommel Casul commented, "This is a mockery we should not do this to our leader...Kaya di tayu ginagalang ng kalapit bansa natin like Malaysia at China kasi tayu mismo walang galang sa ating kapwa...this need to be stop...simulan natin sa sarili natin."

But Arlene Manlangit defended it, saying "this kind of picture symbolizes stength and power. For me this is not offensive, infact it can help Children to respect their leader/leaders because they idolize these heroes."

What about you? Do you like the photo? What can you say about it?
