Heroine Legends “Episode 2.3: Smackdown”

HL 2 3 1 175x98 Heroine Legends Episode 2.3: SmackdownHeroine Legends continues what has thus far been an excellent second season with Episode 3: Smackdown. As Logan has mentioned a couple times, this episode was a custom request, but it’s tailored to fit in the overarching Season 2 storyline.

The episode itself is less about story and more about fighting. There are actually two fights—the first is short and martial arts oriented. The second takes up the majority of the film and focuses much more on wrestling holds. Since there isn’t any kind of game-changing story moment, we’ll focus solely on the fights both, which feature Nightshadow versus a male opponent.

The first battle is Nightshadow vs Malek, and the fight opens with the Hunter landing a stomach punch. Nightshadow retaliates with a stomach punch of her own followed by Malek landing two more in response. Malek somehow makes the pipe that he used in his battle against Vega appear but Nightshadow is undetered and lifts him off the ground by his throat. Nightshadow remains pretty much in control until Malek uses the pipe and hits her with a low blow. The fight ends shortly thereafter as Malek quite literally swaps places with Amobea.

The fight between Nightshadow and Amobea is very one-sided as Amobea controls the action with his superior size and strength. His offense consists almost entirely of wrestling holds so in order, here’s how the fight goes. Bear down, there is a lot here.

Nightshadow lands several kicks and punches with no effect, Amobea bitch slaps her a few times, wrenches her arm, picks her off the ground in a full nelson, puts her in a headlock, and slaps her in a frontal bearhug. She breaks the hold with a headbutt but Amobea returns the favor. He picks her up in a torture rack style backbreaker, drops her to the ground, and picks her up in the air by her waist and squeezes. There is a short pillow fight (not a typo) and Amobea powerbombs Nightshadow on a couch cushion.

Amobea stretches her out by pulling her hands behind her back and places her in a Boston Crab. Amobea continues the submission holds with a camel clutch and a crossface choke hold. Nightshodow gets a temporary reprieve when she lands a low blow and several powerful shots but just as quickly loses the advantage when Amobea lands a low blow of his own. Mercifuly, Amobea knocks her out with a series of punches and carries the heroine off over his shoulder.

There you have it. The focus of this film is combat, and the majority of the film is the heroine taking a severe beating through wrestling holds. If the above sounds good to you, check it out a the link below.

  2. Hey guys,

    1) Let me know your thoughts about this episode!!!

    2) We are working on adding the option to buy DVD copies of each episode. You simply add it to your cart and pay for shipping which it will automatically calculate for you. The DVD will be created in 24 hours (Monday-Friday) then shipped out according to the shipping option you select– this is in response for the large number of people who have emailed me asking for this option!! It’s coming very soon– just working on implementing it!!

    3) Kristin (Celestia) has filmed her intro video to her Group Custom– she’s revved and ready to go!!! The actual campaign will go up in a few days– we are only doing this campaign for 15 days as opposed to the full month like last time… For those of you who wanted better clarification of what a Group Custom is, Kristin explains it in some detail in this video and also shows you a very short snippet from 2 new episodes. The process has changed significantly and you now purchase options for the custom so it’s not random. Once an option is purchased, it is no longer available to select– they will all be listed on the Indiegogo page and our website and range from the costume to location to torture types to scene types!!!

    See the video here:

    Is this villain the most overwhelming? There seems no one can hurt him even a little while one on one.

  4. Really like the villain conceptually, and the film looks great, but the heroine doesn’t really do anything for me. Not sure how I feel about these large domino-masks on the protagonists, it sort of detracts from the appearance, I think. The masks on the villainesses (Diabla and Allura) make sense, I think, because they add to the mystique, but I think I prefer the mask on Mystic (for example) than Nightshadow.

  5. Spandex Fiend

    Just to throw it out there. I always kind of find it dumb that the heroines typically don’t wear masks. They’re identities are just on display for everyone, plus with masks you get the chance for a really sexy unmasking scene. So as usual we have people that love certain types of costumes and others that dislike it. =P I just think, in terms of story, it makes a lot more sense for a superheroine to go out and wear a mask to protect her identity, than to not and give the opportunity for villains and thugs alike to find them in their homes, or where they work, or even to find their families…

    Masks make sense. Happy to see it in this one.

  6. @Itzrozeny: Amoeba is definitely one of the stronger villains… he does have weaknesses, but they are hard to find. His size & strength and ability to respawn make him very difficult to eliminate… however, Valentine & Falcone are far more powerful…

    @Olive: I agree on the type of mask– we are working on finding another that fits her character that isn’t so large.

    @Spandex Fiend: I agree. One thing I think most people agree on is that characters like Superman wouldn’t truly hide in society without SOMEONE realizing who they were… :)

    **We filmed “Agent Files 7″ today, so a screenshot of that is up along with a few more random screen captures! Thank you for everyone who has had kind words for the series and for our continued growth into Hollywood!! Thanks soooo much!!

    @Logan: I am not really a big wrestling fan, but I am a fan of watching sexy heroines get dominated…so I thoroughly enjoyed this. I love the way Amoeba taunts Nightshadow non stop the whole time he’s punishing her, which is a nice bonus.

    Regarding the customs: So the next group custom is for Celestia.. After watching Ground Zero, one thing was very clear to me…Kristen Ige’s performance as Celestia in that video is one of the sexiest things I have EVER seen! It was just amazing! I’ll definitely be contributing something to that one.

  8. @kingles I am also looking forward to hearing Kristin’s custom ideas!! She is definitely incredible!

  9. @Logan: I know this might not be the place for this but I just stopped by Allura’s campaign and you guys have made it! Awesome work guys! Can’t wait to see the final result of it!

    Congratulations!

  10. hotlamtgdness

    Yes, Kristin has good lookings and wonderful martial art skills.

  11. Hey guys– LONG filming day today on Episode 2.9, but it was SEXY and featured Kristin who plays Celestia :)

    @kingles: I agree! Kristin is awesome!– we had some more of Amoeba today– he put Karma (one of the Hunters) in a torture rack today :)

    @HM Fan: She’s really looking forward to this one!

    @Maar13: Yes we did! And Cayla is going to help us prep this weekend for the shoot so I’m excited to have my girls as involved with everything as they are!!

    @hotlamtgdness: –and she’s only getting better with all of her working out, training, and dedication!!

    I’m going to try and get a screenshot up tonight before I go to sleep of today’s film– we film bright and early tomorrow morning with Vega, Mirage, & Evil Allura!!

  12. Fantasyfun

    Lady wonder is coming soon? There is already a supergirl Vega. Then join a Lady wonder. Will they be comrades or opponents? Who is stronger?

  13. @Fantasyfun: Lady Wonder is currently being cast and will appear in our season finale for season 2– she will be as strong as Vega, but from a Demi-God background… The 2 will stand off against each other for an epic battle during the episode!!

    Logan

  14. @ Logan, You are the master of understatement. From what I have seen, Episode 2.9 is EXTREMELY SEXY! Thanks for sharing the YouTube video and screen grab. Celestia looks incredible in her new outfit!! When can we expect a release of 2.9?

  15. @HM Fan: I told ya so! ;) As for a release date, lol, we are WAY FARRRR in advance with filming– we’re now pumping them all out to editors!!! With one release per week, we would be looking at:

    The Demon Within [2]
    Agent Files 4
    Episode 2.4
    Episode 2.5
    The Demon Within [3]
    Episode 2.6
    Agent Files 5
    Episode 2.7
    Path to Darkness [1]
    Episode 2.8
    Episode 2.9
    Path to Darkness [2]
    Agent Files 6
    Episode 2.10
    Episode 2.11
    Agent Files 7
    Episode 2.12
    …then the SEASON FINALE Episode 2.13 – which is going to be EPIC!!! (We already know what it’s going to be about– we are planning it now… it’s a big shoot!)
    **Plus we have 6 slated “Heroine Legends” films still to shoot in the next few weeks… so…. yeah, we have plenty for you guys!!!

    Oh, and today, we filmed Episode 2.12 which featured another Vega vs Dragos fight– check out the fight choreography practice ;)

    Logan

  16. @Logan:

    Man with that schedule I am starting to feel like my paycheck is going to end up in your account in full….lol.

    And on another note, your fight choreographies kick ass.

  17. @Maar13: lol I’m glad you are excited for our upcoming films!! Thanks for the kind words– we’ve been working on mixing it up with fight choreography… I’ve even brought in a few people to help with the chore so it’s always fresh and different and then I tweak it work for camera and keep it true to characters, motivations, and situations… it’s been fun but it’s been VERY draining on us lately lol now we have it all going out to our editors (we hired a few more on) and we are now working on filming a bunch of customs, Cayla’s group custom, and preparing our exciting season finale, which is going to be SOOOOOO hot!!!!

    Logan

  18. @Logan:

    Awesome! I can’t wait. Also looking forward to the next group custom’s options with Kristen, she had some very good Ideas and it would be great to see them in film.

  19. kingles

    @Logan: I’ve got to agree with HM Fan, 2.9 looks like it’s going to be AWESOME! Looks like there’s a lot of cool stuff before then though…Is ‘The Demon Within 2′ expected to come out this weekend?

  20. @Maar13: Celestia’s Group Custom is finally launched!!

    @kingles: 2.9 WAS awesome!! :) TDW2 should be out very soon… I’m expecting a cut this weekend. By Sunday, I should have a progress report on that– we are working on getting everything edited so I can have an actual release schedule!

    Like I just said to Maar13, Celestia’s Group Custom is FINALLY launched!! I’m excited for this new structure!! The best thing about it is that we have the same goal as before, but there’s opportunity to make a much longer, better quality, more peril-filled film– it’s all up to how many contributions we get! Kristin is ready to go and just as excited to film her custom so take a look at the page and if you see something you want, grab it up!! There are only a certain number of each option and they are all customizable!! As each one is purchased, the option will be updated and the system won’t let you buy it– automation is great! :) This could be a very large project– I’m interested to see the feedback for this one!! I’ll try and get a post and/or update up soon!! Check out her Group Custom here:
