Here comes the second episode in the “alternate realities” storyline from The Battle for Earth. Like the previous episode, this one features lots of alternate scenarios and “what if” situations, giving us a glimpse at lots of different possibilities for the Superiorgirl character. The episode presents everything from the the dark and serious opening episode, “Spawn-enstine,” to the more lighthearted “Girl’s Night In.” So if you enjoyed the previous episode, you should like this one too.
Rather than summarize each mini-episode, I’ll give you the story summaries directly from Rye, the director of the Battle for Earth series:
(Spawn-enstine) Spawn has almost finished creating Nuclearman and Superiorgirl shows up to stop him! Just as he is about to bring life to his creature, he finds himself at the bottom of Superiorgirl’s boot! Superiorgirl laughs at Spawn’s threats but a large figure looms behind the young cocky Superheroine!
(Eye of the beast) Even the best of friends can lie to each other! Superiorgirl donates her DNA, but instead of being used to cure disease, it creates a super powered murderer! Superiorgirl finds Spawn dead at his studio and his own creation responsible!
(Against all Odds) Superiorgirl finds herself out numbered and out matched against both Radiance and Fusion! There is nothing she can do but become their personal super punching bag!
(The gift that keeps on giving) Wanting to play with their new toy, Fusion and Radiance drag Superiorgirl out to the desert with a giant chunk of Meteor rock chained to her prone body. Superiorgirl is played with, humiliated, and shown the meaning of pain at the hands of Fusion and Radiance!
(Together forever) In this reality we find Radiance and Superiorgirl as a mega team of girl power.. What they don’t know is Fusion is waiting for them with a green surprise!
(Once bad, you never go back) With no space fragments available, and Radiance joining forces with Superiorgirl, Spawn equips Fusion with powers of the mind! After trapping Superiorgirl in a force field, Radiance takes a beating and succumbs to Fusion’s power. She is then commanded to destroy Superiorgirl!
(The luckiest man alive) A spunky Linda Leedin is on her way home and noticed by 2 thugs, Spawn and Lester. She makes quick work of them but Lor’cal’s apprentice decides this is unfair and gives an unaware Spawn a green present!
(Girl’s night in) Linda and Carissa are relaxing at home, but not for long.. Carissa hears a noise and is carried unconscious back to the living room after leaving to investigate! Linda helps Carissa to her feet and they stand against Fusion!
While I’m sure everyone will have their own preferences, I really like how several episodes involved Superiorgirl being overpowered by two or more villains, and I especially enjoyed the “kryptonite necklace” sequence. I’m amazed that no one (as far as I know) has attempted to replicate this famous situation from Superman: The Movie until now. (Someone correct me if I’m wrong there…)
Aside from that, I think the acting is good in this video, and I like the model who plays Superiorgirl (the same actress from the previous episode). I’m really enjoying this “alternate realities” series for the variety of situations it presents. What do you think?
