Heroine Legends has just released Helix of Hyperion, the latest entry in its “Altered Universe” custom series. Remember, these stories take place outside of the normal Heroine Legends story continuity. Lets take a look… Check out my review below, along with screen shots and a trailer.
[Spoilers] The story of Helix of Hyperion revolves around a ring with a piece of Hyperyite attached, which the good version of Allura is keen on getting for herself as it once belonged to her family. She gets in a fight with the mob goon who has it and takes some punches to the stomach and face, but she still is able to nab the ring. She then interrogates the goon until he reveals that he was going to give the ring to Dark Vega.
Now, normally the Hyperyite would take away her powers, but when she puts the ring on her finger, her powers increase exponentially. But this doesn’t take effect right away as she comments that she doesn’t feel any different when she puts it on.
Enter Amobea, who battles Allura and does his invulnerable thing. He then lands several hard punches to Allura’s face and delivers several knees to her stomach. He then lifts her in an over the shoulder backbreaker and squeezes her in a reverse bearhug. Things look grim but then her eyes begin to glow blue and the power of the ring takes hold. Allura has become stronger than ever before and wipes out Amobea with kicks, punches, knee lifts, and finally a throat lift.
Arriving at the mobsters’ lair, Allura comes face to face with four goons. One pulls off her mask and they try to defeat her with punches, a crowbar, and a gun, but she is now completely invulnerable. She downs all four when out of nowhere Dark Vega freezes her in place and removes the ring.
The freeze effect wears off and Allura tries to fight Dark Vega but without the ring, she’s really not a match for DV. Allura gets hit with stomach punches and gets knocked out when DV rams her head into a countertop.
Allura awakens chained to a wall as DV jabs her again and again with some kind of torture device. DV turns away for a second, and when she turns back, Allura is suddenly wearing red after shifting into her excel form. Allura breaks her chains and the girls have a fight that DV more or less controls. They exchange several stomach punches and Allura eventually manages to get the ring back. And once its powers activate, DV is helpless to stop Allura. Allura takes her best punches with a smile and eventually drops DV unconscious with several punches and cradle carries her off.
That’s it for the rundown so a couple of thoughts before we finish. I think Cayla Black is just fantastic. I like her as a heroine but I like her even more as a villainess. Now Evil Allura doesn’t show up in this episode but you can definitely feel Allura’s dark side underneath the surface. When she has that ring on it seems to unleash the beast and in a way foreshadows what Allura will one day become. I don’t know what the future plans are, but I for one would love to see that ring enter the normal episodes. It makes her far stronger than even Dark Vega, one of the strongest characters in the series. Evil Allura would be an unstoppable force with that ring and that could make for some great stories as heroines would have to find a way to take her down.
I also still hold the character of Dark Vega and the actress who plays her Hailey Stillwell in high regard and after this episode ever more so. She plays a terrific villainess but I thought her talents really shined when Allura got the ring back. You can see that supreme confidence she usually has crumble when she realizes she’s about to get her ass handed to her. I just thought that was an excellent acting job. Bravo to both the ladies in this episode.
