 Captain Barbell 02

Captain Barbell is a superhero drama television series based on a character of the same name created by Mars Ravelo. It was aired on Philippine television by GMA Network during weeknights on its primetime block. The series premiered on May 29, 2006, and last aired on January 12, 2007.

Richard Gutierrez plays the superhero, Captain Barbell and his alter ego, Teng. His archnemesis Viel Villian, is played by Richard Gomez.


Barbell, Barbanium & Askobar
  • Barbell - a palm-size golden medallion-barbell plate with "CB" engraved on its center. The name "Captain B" is also depicted on the medallion. Teng twists the medallion and it forms into a barbell, he then raises it and shouts "Captain Barbell" to transform himself into the superhero. As Captain Barbell, the medallion is depicted on his chest; he grabs it back to transform to his alter ego, Teng. The medallion is said to be made from barbanium.
  • Barbanium - a powerful fictional element discovered in the year 2016 by scientist in the Philippines.
  • Askobar - "Asido Kontra Barbanium" is the only equally powerful fictional element that can counter barbanium's power. It can be crystallized and used in many ways. It is used to power a cyborg, and also molded into a bullet which deteriorates anything it touches. Coincidentally, Viel also called the element Askobar, but with a different meaning, "Asido Kontra Barbell".

The General and The Villains
  • A logo of two Vs aligned vertically inside a circle can always be found on the General's creations like Captain and Mrs. B. This very same logo, on the other hand, this is also the Villians logo. This led to the conclusion that the General will emerge from the bloodline of Villian family.
  • LIVE Corporation is the name of the General's conglomerate during the time of Neo Metropolis (a futuristic Philippine city). The word LIVE is an anagram of both Viel and Levi, members of the Villian family, so it therefore leaves to either one of them who will be the General in the future.
  • It's now known that Viel Villian is the General. As to how he became the general is yet to be revealed.

Captain Barbell's Origin
  • Captain Barbell is a Filipino earthling who came from the Philippine's distant future, and was sent back to the past.
  • His real name was Arell, the son of Captain B and Mrs. B.
  • He was renamed Potenciano "Teng/Enteng" Magtanggol by the elderly couple who found him.

Captain Barbell's Abilities
  • Flight - the power to fly.
  • Strength - an extraordinary strength.
  • ESP - extra-sensory perception.

Captain Barbell's Enemies
  • Ordinary humans who had somehow direct or indirect contact with barbanium and askobar became mutants with different powers.
  • Cyborgs which are half-human/half-machine powered by askobar. At present, there are four known cyborgs: Commander X, Cyborg 5564, Cyborg 5566, and Ex-O.
  • The General is the mysterious villain of Captain Barbell whose identity is Viel Villian.
  • Every week or so, a new villain is being introduced whose participation could last a week or more, depending on the story arc.
