(The video combines the best Black Scorpion scenes of the episode….not all (that would be around 14 minutes in total))
(click to enlarge)
I love the first scene with Black Scorpion and Steve as she kisses him but he calls out for his partner Darcy.
Darcy shows up and he mentions that he never saw Darcy and Black Scorpion at the same time…..well, he never got closer to solving that “mystery” 😉
Ok, I am not the biggest fan of unmasking tied-up heroines, but at least better than unconscious ones.
All in all, this is one of the very best unmaskings ever done!
It isn’t the first time in the season that Black Scorpion gets unmasked…but the only time someone finds out who she is! And to make it so much worse for her: He is also is exposing her to the whole world by taking that picture of her unmasked face and selling it to the press. Flashpoint totally ruins her secret identity and the police are chasing after her, especially Steve who is …quite….furious that Black Scorpion is actually Darcy, his partner!
I also like that this is a double unmasking as he first rips of her eye protection (against his laser thingy) and thereby can see her eyes.
The whole build-up is great as they talk about what he would gain from unmasking her.
Also, I love how he is teasing her as he even pretends to attack her. You can clearly see how afraid she is of what is about to happen. She knows exactly that she is finished once he rips her mask and wig off and thereby revealing Darcy Walker!
The final unmasking itself is a little flawed for me for two reasons:
There is the fade to black and then the scene goes on (commercial break)
They show his hand on her mask, then cut to him, then he already is pulling her mask and wig away. This was most likely done to be able to remove her black face paint around her eyes…and show her exposed face without it. Rather unrealistic…. but yeah, she would look a little weird with that “panda” eyes.
But her reaction is done so well! She is angry and frustrated and he enjoys his victory over her…verrry much. Especially interesting after he missed several chances in episode 3 to get a picture of her unmasked face.
The episode then takes the fantasy route as there is a clone of Darcy, so she can convince everyone that is (seemingly) isn’t Black Scorpion after all. But yeah, it’s very hard to think of a realistic approach to all of this, unless she would have a twin sister or someone who would convincingly be Black Scorpion and Darcy would show up next to her (like in season 1 of Batwoman with Julia as Batwoman for one episode).
This also is another good example of how much such a scene gets better if you are really invested in the characters. If you have seen all 18 episodes before, you are really invested in Black Scorpion. You know her very well by now and you also know Flashpoint and his plans from episode 3.
This makes the unmasking so much more impactful than it would be in 99,9% of the fetish videos for me.
That is why I am sooo interested in TV shows with masked women like Black Scorpion, Batwoman, Stargirl, and the Queen of Swords.
And hopefully, there will be more new shows in the future!
What I would give for a Blu-ray release of this show or an HD TV airing!
What do you think about this episode and these scenes?
I didn’t include any scenes from the comics or fetish videos…..but still, I came up with quite some scenes I wanted to have in the trailer.
In the end, I included 83 scenes from the movies and TV shows. As the scenes average a little over 3 seconds…the trailer reached nearly 5 minutes in total. A little longer than I initially wanted it to be.
I did cut some scenes a little shorter, but I didn’t want to delete whole scenes out of it.
All of these scenes can be found on this blog….with some digging as the blog is around 8 years old by now…… many of them in the Hall of Fame.
I took a song with the PERFECT lyrics that I found a while ago and edited it down to a length that would fit twice in the trailer.
Hope you folks like it!
All my favorite scenes from the movies and shows are in them! Some scenes aren’t my favorite, they are just a “stand-in” for my favorite movies or TV shows.

Ok, I guess and hope that many of you already know the Black Scorpion TV show…. and since I didn’t cover the show with enough posts in the past…I wanna change that now.
The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!
A little extract from my post in the Hall of Fame (more info on the show can be found there):
I remember how I stumbled upon this show in the early 2000s.
This show was never shown here, but at some point, I read about the show and saw some pictures.
I immediately bought the DVD box set in the US and it took a while to get the Season box set to arrive here.
I also had to buy a DVD player that could handle region 1 DVDs. It was a pretty expensive endeavor, but damn, it was worth it BIG time!
I watched one episode every evening until I have seen all 22 episodes.
And that was a great thrill ride every night!
Ok, enough introduction….let’s start with one of the best episodes.
Here are the highlights of episode 1!

And here is the video:
[Watch the video before you continue!]
It’s Steve’s first encounter with Black Scorpion! This starts his obsession with catching the Black Scorpion. He was transferred to this police department to catch her…. and I envy him big time! What a fantastic job! He gets paid to chase after such a stunning masked vigilante…oh man!
The ending of the episode with Firearm is so awesome! I love how he blackmails her to unmask herself….such a great move, and he really enjoys it 😉
One of the rare villains who actually wants to know who is under the mask of a heroine. And her reaction to it is well done and played as well!
Plus it’s a great bonus that he recognizes Darcy…and again, I love how he is enjoying the whole situation.
A good move that she quickly puts the mask back in place as soon she gets the chance.
In the end, Firearm has to die….after all, he had seen her face, so it was the most logical choice from the writers to get him killed.
It was the first episode if a villain like him would found out about her secret identity and would be able to tell everyone…it would be a short TV show.
Damn, I would give for a Blu-ray box for this TV show!!! Or a (not so cheesy) remake with better action scenes… #dream
In my opinion these three are the most important TV-shows when it comes to women in masks. All from my “Hall of Fame” on this blog.
The problem is, none of these seems to be available in HD.
In germany, only Birds of Prey is available on DVD! Black Scorpion (the TV show) and I think Queen of swords too were never even shown on TV here…
I bought Black Scorpion from amazon.com and Queen of Swords from amazon.fr. And you can find…other sources to these shows more or less easy, but all at best in DVD quality.
Many many “old” movies and TV shows are available on HD now. They were shown on HD TV, so folks were able to Record/rip it, or Blu-Rays were released.
Does anyone know a source where to get any of these shows in HD quality (720p or better)?
From time to time I check the different amazon sites and other ….sources, but nothing so far.
I would love to see them in a picture quality these shows deserve!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Just comment this post…
If you have a link that could be “difficult” to post here, just write me a message
Another post! Why? To celebrate the famous Black Scorpion series!
On the Black Scorpion series DVD set is a strange slide show with a length of over 40 minutes! Well some pictures are shown again and again, but there is plenty material that most of you, even if you watched the whole show, haven’t seen!
I took the best pictures of Black Scorpion and Darcy Walker!
And here is the whole gigantic gallery, 44 pictures:
A classic scene from the Black Scorpion franchise….Black Scoprion is trapped as gas fills her little death trap. She can escape but blacks out…. her cop partner finds her (and he doesn’t know who Black Scorpion is) and is now reachingfor herMASK!!!

And here is the sexy video:
And if that scene wouldn’t be enough, I have a very hot extra scene for you!
Earlier in the same movie our Detective enters his apartment, and Black Scorpion is already waiting for him….
….I guess some folks might find that a great fantasy 😉
……WOW… What a nightly visitor 🙂
That scene is way to hot for youtube (it’s uncut), so I put in a different place…you will love that scene, I guarantee that 😉 :
Hey folks, I edited a nice video together. Black Scorpion battles some “photographer” (may sound familiar, but it’s NOT the movie/series you are thinking off….). And this guy wants to take some pictures of her… UNMASKED!
Black Scorpion has shown us a lot… these pictures are taken from just one (!) episode! The series is the greatest series if you love sexy, masked heroines. The series was very cheesy and cheap at some times, but hell……more than 20 episodes with a female masked vigilante…..great²! 🙂
Today it’s time for the Black Scorpion TV-series for her debut here @ the Maskripper. Michelle Lintel was chosen to play the Black Scorpion and her other “half” Darcy Walker, the police detective. There are very, very few TV-series with masked women so this series is an absolute MUST-SEE for anyone interested in superheroines and masked women in general. Here some pictures of Black Scorpion…

The series is a little to cheezy for my taste, but it has the Black Scorpion!! Great stuff…
If someone will ever make a “realistic” non-comedy TV-series with a masked superheroine…. I will have to worship him/her forever. 😉
