My Super D

My Super D is a 2016 Philippine superhero fantasy drama television series directed by Frasco Mortiz and Lino Cayetano, starring Dominic Ochoa, Marco Masa and Bianca Manalo. The series premiered on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide on The Filipino Channel on April 18, 2016, replacing My Love Donna and Game ng Bayan.[1][2][3][4] This is Dominic Ochoa's very first lead role after playing supporting roles in numerous teleseryes.[5]


The original Super D, Delta (Richard Yap), a being from another planet who draws his power from a blue diamond, is a superhero who saves the lives of many people, including a barangay captain named Dado (Ronnie Lazaro), who was in turn inspired by the heroism of Super D and dedicates his life in serving others. His wife Belen (Sylvia Sanchez) gives birth to a son named Dodong (Marc Santiago) considered Super D as his idol during his childhood, and met Nicole and Tony with whom he befriended.

A crime lord named Don Zulueta (Ronaldo Valdez), knowing Super D's secret, used a woman (Precious Lara Quigaman) to pin him down. Super D fell in love with this woman, without both of them knowing the Don's plan. Don Zulueta's criminal group was able to kill Super D. To prove the superhero's death, the criminals led by Zulueta's henchmen Fredo (Simon Ibarra) bombed a shopping mall, where Dado is among the casualties of the bombing.

Dodong (Dominic Ochoa), grew up as an adult, ended up marrying Nicole (Bianca Manalo), and they had a family with their son Dennis (Marco Masa). Dodong, a construction worker, got involved accident at the site he was working in. Tony (Marvin Agustin), instead of helping Dodong, hired a lawyer to get Dodong imprisoned. While Dodong was imprisoned, Tony took Nicole and Dennis for himself. Later in the story, Pablo (Nonie Buencamino), a graphic artist and trusted friend of the original Super D, helps Dodong. Also with the graphic artist's help, Dodong was able to find the blue diamond and became the next Super D.

My Super D is directed by Frasco Mortiz and Lino Cayetano. The series is Cayetano's first project since his 3-year break from directing.[9]

The concept behind My Super D according to the production staff is that "everyone can be a superhero regardless of physicality." According to Mortiz, the My Super D is produced as a series "for all ages" citing that there are superhero-themed series aimed only for mature audience. Commenting on what constitutes a hero in context of the series' production "When we say superhero, what instantly comes to mind is the conventional kind — strong and muscled body — but we must not forget that a superhero possesses a good heart, too, not just all muscles." He also remarked that there are action scenes yet these have very light treatment. Before the airing of the first episode, Mortiz expressed his enthusiasm on the opportunity to teach values to children viewers through the show such as the importance of not forgetting to pray.[10]


My Super D was reported to replace Pasión de Amor on February 29, 2016, but was postponed because of We Will Survive and moved to summer season. The telenovela replaced My Love Donna and Game ng Bayan.[11]
