(doesn’t have a real intro)
I started watching the series because I was curious and wanted to see if this would be a good action series. It was good and I kept watching. Then I saw the episode with Helena Bertinelli (aka Huntress), she started hiding her identity with a motorcycle helmet and fought against the Arrow. Not a sexy mask, but a start. A start to introduce sexy, masked women in the series.
And now, after 8 seasons and 170 episodes….. and at least 10 masked women…. I can say that this series is a milestone when it comes to masked women!
And that’s why it is “Hall of fame” for me!
Here is a preview of most of the masked girls:

(self unmasking, unmasking, secret identity discovered)
Some good scenes, but no really great one. Often the secret identity of the heroine isn’t as important as I would like it.
And nearly no villain cares about their secret identities. But especially the Canary (Sara Lance) and Ravager have nice scenes!
Regarding action scenes with masked women…the best series! Some great fight scenes. The story is really good as well (most of the time)
Love the ravager mask as it’s a rather heavy rubber cowl! The canary masks are really good for eye masks. They cover more of the face as usual and are made of rubber.
The mask of the huntress is too small, but better than no mask.
Rest of the costumes
A lot of leather. I like leather. Pretty “realistic” costumes, no heroines with high heels. You can like that or not.
Canary has the sexiest costume as she shows some serious cleavage.
Certainly a huge range of good-looking women in this series! Acting is on a solid level.
