Lagim (meaning "dread" or "terror" in Tagalog) is one of the first Filipino superhero characters in the Philippines. He was created by Filipino artist Cris CaGuintuan. Lagim’s first appearance was in the pages of Pilipino Komiks #1 (ACE Publications) in 1947 or 1949. His sidekick was a boy named Levy, a young lad he saved in the past, and wore a costume similar to the uniform worn by Robin, the sidekick of the American superhero Batman.
