To celebrate this SPECIAL day….the day where the Batwoman TV shows starts into its second season (8PM at the CW)…I have a “Batwoman Beyond comics special” for you!
It’s the “Batwoman BEYOND” version from the “Batman Beyond” run.
In that run a version of Batwoman appeared in issues 37 to 42.
For some reason I forgot to post about these comics back then, time to finally do that now!
In this gallery you find the highlights from my perspective with some peril moments and all the (un)masking action!
These pages are from issues 38 to 42. You will find more of course in the comics as I couldn’t put them all in a gallery 😉
You should check out all these comics!

I really like that she actually had a secret identity in these comics for a while as not even the reader knew who was under that mask.
The advantage of such a full face mask is ….obviously….that the whole face is covered, so it provides a perfect disguise.
I do love such a mystery! It also provides some opportunities to show scenes where the mask gets damaged or ripped.
Sadly they don’t much use of that here. I mean if someone delivers hard punches to her face or threws her around the mask should get damaged at some point. But well, I don’t know what high-tech material they use in these Batman Beyond masks. So, her costume does only really damaged once through that explosion.
My favorite is the scene where a hand of the villain gets really close to her face as she is lying on the ground. But sadly, it seems like he didn’t want to unmask her as he immediately starts to choke her instead of yanking her mask off. That moron 😉
The self unmaskings are well done even I would have prefered that someone else had unmasked her at one point or at least try to do that.
But in the end these comics with this Batwoman Beyond version are my favorites from the last 5 years!
This one was a lucky find I stumbled upon by pure luck.
I saw this poster, and of course I HAD to watch the movie 😉

As you can see the poster is strangely cut at both sides, but well, the most interesting part is there to see.
Quite interesting is that the hero is in the background while the masked woman is in fact the “right hand” of the movie’s villain.
But I guess they thought it would help to put an attractive, mysterious woman right in the middle of the movie poster 😉
Let’s move on to the movie, here are some pictures as a preview:

And here is the video:
I really like the idea of having such a masked villainess in the movie! It is a rare thing in a movie even today, but especially hard to find such a character in a movie from 1959!
Her movie role is quite odd, naturally to the age of the movie and the way women were portrayed…..she doesn’t actively fight, but rather tortures and kills people from the distance or by backstabbing them (literally). She fights with an epee for about smashing 5 seconds, but we will come to that later on.
Now to the video above: The ending is bitter sweet for me. It’s great that he rips her mask off in such manner. Sadly…we can’t see it as the movie shows it from that perspective. And she runs away without allowing us to see her unmasked face. What a wasted opportunity!
And it’s also sad that she actually never puts on her mask again througout the movie. 🙁
She always is wearing that outfit, where she covers her hair completely. Ok, that could be seen as some sort of disguise, but well, doesn’t really work for me 😆
The movie had also a german audio track which I used as I watched the movie. And as you can possibly tell when you know german TV it was a german TV airing (MDR is the channel).
Interestingly the german dialogue is quite different. As the movie is italian, both english and german audios are dubs from the original language.
In german the villain approaches her and says “….say that you laugh at me under your MASK….” in translation.
Here is the scene for those of you who can understand it:
So, you may wondering what happens to her at the end of the movie?
Well, here is her ending:
[Watch the video first before you continue!]
After another sneaky murder she meets her final fate as some random soldier kills her with a banner pole!?!
Quite an odd way to finish her off. Especially as it should have been the hero’s job to do that and get his revenge on her after all the things she had done to him, his father and friends.
Interestingly we finally see her hair, she is finally fully “unmasked” in these seconds. A continuation error as we never see that cloth coming off as she still was standing.
Fittingly she has red hair….which was/is a popular hair color for showing evil/crazy women 😉
And here is a promo poster for the movie where she actually shows her hair (which she never does like that):
Happy new year for all of you! May 2021 be better than 2020 😉
New month/year, new content for the VIP Club here on Maskripper!
>>>>> I updated the VIP-Club with new material! <<<<<
1 full fetish movie (over 90 minutes) and 1 new video have been uploaded for this month!
The full fetish movie is actually pretty much my favorite of all fetish movies with such a length! A hot actress and great costume and mask + an awesome unmasking. Can’t get much better than this…for my taste!
The video includes Batgirl and Catwoman 😉
+ you will have FULL access to my 2 (self-written) Maskripper fetish stories (both over 15 pages each)!
