Episode #1: Origins (Pilot)

Password protection removed.

It’s finally here!

Best viewed in full screen mode.

Some of you may be wondering what the Alliance of Student Superheroes really is. Well, despite not-so-obvious superpowers and teh rockingest fighting skillz, the members of ASS are normal (well, as normal as superheroes can get) students of Philippine Science High School.

We come from different walks of high school life; different interests, different cliques, different faces, different directions. The students of the real Philippine Science High School are just as diverse. The ASS video is an analogical view of Philippine Science – or Pisay, as it is lovingly called by many – which shows the diverse, multi-talented scholars of the Philippine nation, or ‘iskolar ng bayan’.

We, contrary to popular belief, undergo the many trials and tribulations that normal high schoolers go through everyday – just in a super way. We have problems with homework, parents, love life, teachers, friends, and so many other things. ASS is a metaphor of our lives at Pisay, and because our lives change, this series does not end at Origins.
