Stargirl, Season 3, episode 1 [short review]

Stargirl is finally back!

Episode 1 of season 3 was a classic season opener for me. Much story to tell, little action.

And that means that Stargirl and co only had VERY limited screen time in this one. Two relatively short scenes with little action.

Certainly an interesting episode, but regarding material for this blog…. there was very little there.

On the good side, there were up to 4(!) masked women in these two short scenes! 🙂

Minor Spoilers ahead…

Storywise, I am not sure about the idea that all the JSA and Injustice League are now working together.

Not surprisingly characters like hourglass and Wildcat are not happy about working together with former villains and villainesses.

It’s a rather safe bet that it won’t work for too long 😉

Sadly, they all know each other’s …not so secret…secret identities so it would be SO easy for the bad guys to get the upper hand, but I think they won’t exploit that at all :-(.

Interestingly there were newspaper reports in this one about strange sightings that were caused by Stargirl.

Perhaps the public will FINALLY be aware that there are masked heroes and villains running around their city.

Then the masks would actually be really useful again as …so far… the heroes and villains only battled each other… while the normal people were not aware that these folks even exist.

And that would open some interesting possibilities….

Looking forward to the new episodes and ….hopefully…. there will be much more action with the many masked ladies of this show!

Same woman…. different mask and costume! [The Flash]

Last week I posted about a masked thief that wasn’t really a criminal.

This time I wanna put the focus on her again as she wants to put her power to good use… and therefore she gets a new costume and cowl!

And here is the video:

I decided to show her unmasked face in the pictures above as she already was seen unmasked in my post from last week.

Ok, as always, I am annoyed about how careless these guys and girls are with their secret identities as they unmask in public way too often.

She even runs around without a mask in the beginning. Yes, she has super speed so no one can identify her while she is running….I guess.

But some back alley isn’t exactly a safe place to run around in costume…without a mask! Especially during the day. At any time somebody could show up and could see their exposed faces!

Also, as I mentioned before, I HATE this “magic” masks a LOT! It’s a complete, insane fantasy that that might ever work.

But for the movie folks, it’s a very easy and convenient way to have a quick unmasking, without hassling with an actual mask that might be difficult to remove. And Barry’s hair just looks perfect after the “unmasking” 😆

I really like her costume a lot! It basically looks like a smooth skin wetsuit with some extras. The black fabric looks really great and I think that it is very sexy.

Her mask is sadly (but logically) from the same lame fabric as the Flash mask, it’s ok…but nothing like the great rubber cowl he wore in earlier seasons.

BUT… it covers her face well enough and it’s a solid disguise and I would love to have her around in much more episodes, but after the ending of season 8, that doesn’t seem to happen…and well season 9 will be the last one anyhow.

Seeing a woman in such a costume and cowl in this show was a real treat for me and was a great way to end the season after it had quite a lot of boring episodes in the mid-section.

My version of a Flash TV show would be like this:

A woman as the Flash

A woman that is taller than “Fast Track” and is a little curvier in a certain region…

Use that costume, but add a massive rubber cowl to it. (like Flash had in early seasons)

And there is NO damn magic way for her to mask or unmask!

Also, there would be some villains who are actually interested in her secret identity!

And they would actually try to find out who she is by trying to remove her mask! (Yes, that is actually a possibility…. looking at you… Batwoman TV show)

She wouldn’t self-unmask every 5 minutes 😉

Adding some sexy villainesses (some masked) to it.

Use very little fantasy and magic. The Flash has her superpowers but only very few villains would have some. The villains would have their ways to sabotage her powers and would rely on some gadgets.

These scenes were from this episode:

(she also appears in costume in the episode after that)

Ok, enough from me…

What do you think about her costume?

Catwoman unmasked by the police! ….and it’s not who you think ;-) – [Masks off #42]

Sorry, for not posting last weekend, but here is a mid-week post to make up for it.

Thanks to a nice member of the best unmasking forum in the world, I learned about a certain scene in a comic book.

And I have to say… it has become one of my favorite unmaskings in a comic book!

I think I knew most of the really good unmaskings by now, but this one has somehow slipped below my radar.

Let’s check it out:

Catwoman_Vikki
Shadow-Of-The-Bat-Annual-2-pg06
« of 7 »

Watch the pages before you go on!

Well, I love it! The fight with Batman is a nice start, always very sexy material, and the fact that he knocks her out….for just some seconds(?) to deliver her to the cops is quite unusual.

But well, after all, this is a very unusual storyline and many things are very different from the “normal” Batman world.

I love how he orders the cops to unmask her! Pure gold 🙂

A little odd that he leaves that to them, as I would have gladly done the job myself… if I would be Batman.

Of course, it would be nice to have the unmasking in more detail…in more panels…but ok.

However, the result is fantastic! Her mask yanked away to her forehead and the expression on her face…wow! She knows that she is screwed big time!

The cops and Batman now know who she is. They know who the famous cat burglar is and her career is pretty much over!

The big surprise here is that Catwoman is actually NOT Selina Kyle but Vikki Vale, and it makes it even better, especially when she is “interviewed” by Dr. Crane a few pages later on.

After she is injected with a truth serum she admits how she loves “the excitement, the danger, the fun” when she is Catwoman!

They should have added how much she loves to run around in that tight costume and mask and how much it turns her on 😉 . But that would have been too much for the censors 😆

A great fantasy to have a star reporter running around as Catwoman at night! A respected and famous member of society during the day and a wanted criminal at night, certainly a great mixture 🙂

And that makes the unmasking even better!

Of course, I would prefer her not to be handcuffed and to say something like “NO!” or “Not my mask!” or “Don’t you dare!”… but these are only small issues.

All in all, I am very happy to now know this “unmasking gem”.

Batgirl gassed by a villain and Batgirl gets into… close contact…. with Batman!

I have seen this one as it came out in …. mid-2016?! Damn, nearly 6 years ago already.

Somehow I didn’t make a post back then as it seemed very difficult for me as this movie has so many minutes of a certain masked heroine!

But, as with the Catwoman: Hunted movie I will focus on 2 selected scenes.

I certainly recommend you to watch the whole movie.

 

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, Batgirl was pretty lucky here! She managed to stay conscious long enough to lock herself “away”.

Otherwise, this guy could have done quite a lot to her….

However, I really like this peril scene as he uses that odd knockout gas that takes some time to work.

It’s also odd that he sprays that stuff in his own direction also, as his face is right next to hers… but it has not the slightest effect on him, even he was (less) exposed to it, but ok, no big aspect.

The way he presses himself onto her is quite…..sexual….I was surprised that they would have that scene in it.

Batgirl was also lucky that he didn’t go immediately for her mask as she was pretty helpless (picture 3).

But he missed the chance to unmask her…

 

And I got one more scene for you!

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!

Well, luckily I didn’t know about that scene before I watched this movie!

I was really surprised BIG time by this scene…I mean Batgirl having sex with Batman???!

I mean ok, the whole movie is rather for adults than for kids…but holy Batsex, I didn’t think I would ever see that!

Even they only show the …foreplay, but it’s crystal clear what happens/will happen.

Can only guess if Barbara (as Batgirl unmasked herself) has then sex with Batman or Bruce…

But well, I can’t blame them 😉

 

Two things were quite odd about this scene. First, it’s another example of how careless many masked heroes and heroines get when they are on rooftops.

She unmasks herself on that rooftop! Ok, perhaps there is no tall building nearby, but that is very risky! What if someone sees that through a binocular and sees how Batgirl yanks off her mask (and other things? Very dangerous for her secret identity! And why does she unmask herself in the first place? She could have sex with Batman or Bruce with her mask on.

Also, her mask/cowl seems to be connected to her cape as it comes off (way too easily) as she yanks her cape away. Some more frames of her cowl leaving her face would have been great!

It looks quite sloppy this way from the animators.

However, it’s a pretty great scene and was surely a big surprise as I watched that movie back then.

I will re-watch the movie in the next weeks.

The Batgirl costume….revealed! [Batgirl movie, HBO Max, 2022]

OK, this news can’t wait, so I wanna post it today!

From Batwoman now to Batgirl, to be more precise to the Batgirl movie that will come out later this year!

I posted about the casting of Leslie Grace (point 3) and now the costume got revealed!

Here it is:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Ok, my biggest fear is gone now. They are using a cowl and not an eye mask.

The cowl looks really good but doesn’t seem to have a chin strap unless it’s hidden in the shadows.

So basically she is wearing a helmet 😉

The long red wig(?) looks also really good and her face looks great under the cowl (and without a cowl as well).

Now on to the costume. Ok, I do like leather, but I would have preferred a black costume over this.

Overall I do like the costume. After Catwoman in “The Batman” and the costume disaster in the “Birds of Prey” movie, this is certainly a better one.

I hope Leslie can play the role well and that the script will be good.

And the hardcore comic fans will notice that this costume is very accurate to the one in the comics.

Not a plus point for me as I would have wished they would have chosen the costume from the Arkham video games.

Looking forward to more news and hopefully some first teaser trailer in the next months!

Some more news:

Episode 7, which will air next Wednesday (24) will actually already be the mid-season finale!

From what I read the show will then return on January 12 and will have only 13 episodes in total as was confirmed from some sources.

I hope that there will be some good news about the 4th season soon!

And the CW released this promo picture of Poison Mary:

Wow, she looks great! Interestingly the left plant has caught a bat 😉

Can’t wait to see Poison Mary and Poison Ivy united!

I would bet that the cliffhanger at the end of the next episode shows Poison Ivy for the first time….

P.S.:

Watched the first episode of Armageddon, but so far Batwoman wasn’t in it.

Will keep you updated!

 

Fan films recommendations: “Batman: Dawn of Fear” + “SPIDER-GWEN”

Today I wanna make a quick post to recommend two Fan films (not my finds)!

First of all:

“Batman – Dawn of Fear”

The camera is a little too shacky (no tripods?) here and there and the Catwoman costume could be better (it’s ok).
But a LOT is really good here! The acting is solid, fights aren’t bad, love how much Catwoman is in it.
And Batman’s cowl is awesome!

Hope that Barbara then will make her debut as Batgirl in the next one…if they make another one! (in the black costume and cowl)

Second of all:

Spider-Gwen (a fan film by Chris R. Notarile)

 

Ah, FINALLY a new Chris R. Notarile video with a masked woman!
I love his early works with the Catwoman videos he made.

A shame that he KNOWS and she gives up and unmasks herself.
But she looks great in the suit and hopefully, he will make more movies with her or other masked heroines.

Batwoman, season 3, episode 5 “A Lesson from Professor Pyg” [Review]
