The Battle for Earth has just released Episode 27, featuring a new superheroine named Tempest, who is a nice addition to the Battle for Earth superheroine lineup and is played by an attractive and likeable actress.
Tempest arrives in a new town to escape her mysterious past in which (we are led to believe via voice-over) her former life as a superheroine may have caused some unwanted problems in her life. She meets a very nice yet darkly mysterious man and sets up a date of sorts. Just as she’s about to meet him for a nice, normal outing which will surely not involve any evil overlords or henchman, the nice man she just met is brutally attacked by an evil thug who quickly sets his sights on our superheroine.
This is a pretty even-handed fight scene with Tempest being the more dominant one. A plot twist offers up a new foe for Tempest just as she’s about to defeat the mysterious henchman, setting off a new (quick) fight scene in which Tempest doesn’t fare quite as well.
The bad guys take our superherione back to their evil lair, where she awakens to find herself bound AOH, in her underwear. The bad guys inform her that she’s been stripped of her clothes not because they’re interested in her sexually, but because they “need her full focus… her raw attention.” It turns out the the nice man Tempest met in the opening scene intends to be her “teacher.” We also learn in this scene the nature of event that led Tempest to want to escape her mysterious past.
Next, we learn that Tempest’s training is actually being arranged by Spawn as a part of his evil plan. In the meantime, the teacher unties Tempest and punches her in the stomach repeatedly. The two characters have a brief, even-handed fight scene before Tempest’s teacher leads her to Spawn and his chemically-enhanced thug. Spawn asks the question on everyone’s mind: “Would you rather dance around in your underwear, or put on a powerful uniform?” Thus leading to the introduction of Tempest’s costume, which is pretty nicely designed, in my opinion.
Spawn instructs Tempest to use her powers of focus, and then tells her her final test will be a battle against the evil henchman. The remainder of the video (about eight minutes or so) involves this fight scene, which is a fairly even fight involving lots of bearhugs and various moves. We even get to see Tempest using her powers to freeze her opponent. The video ends leaving things open for a sequel to this episode, and hints at a possible return for one or more superheroines featured in previous episodes.
