UPDATED with full trailer and spoiler-free mini-review!
I think you know how this goes by now. Just like with the other releases, I can’t really talk about this film without spoiling things I don’t wish to spoil. And there is a ton to spoil in this episode. It really is the crescendo of years of storytelling but also a new beginning in a lot of ways.
I don’t know how anyone who considers themselves a fan of Next Global Crisis could miss it, and I don’t know if there is going to be a Season 4, but considering how this ends, there damn well better be a Season 4.
This isn’t a review or a rundown. It won’t be a synopsis or a summary. Just know that everything NGC is about is present in this episode. There are perils to be sure. Bearhugs, backbreakers, knockouts, choke holds and beatdowns. There’s heroic stands, betrayals, some laughs, great fighting, dramatic returns, broken alliances, cliffhangers, and yes, death. Not to mention a collection of some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen.
At some point, I’m going to write an ode to Virtue’s legs. Those are good legs to have, let’s just leave it at that for now. Whatever does happen next, I hope it heavily involves the just revealed “Girl of Light.” That’s a story that I would love to see told.
It all comes down to this. The finale for season 3. Alaric has a new found confidence now that his strength is multiplied by Disciple drugs. Having disposed of Bluebird he looks set to destroy all superheroines that stand in his way. Before he can hatch his plan however, his training session is interrupted by Miss Freedom and Celestia. Miss Freedom informs Alaric that once as she did, he over-estimates his greatness. Alaric disagrees and proceeds to humiliate both Miss Freedom and Celestia in the ring, crushing them both at the same time.
With these two looking done for he receives a message from John Roman and Virtue who have broken into Darkheart HQ. He quickly heads off to stop them, leaving a trail of destruction in the ring. At Darkheart HQ Alaric is joined by James Roman who aids him in laying Virtue to waste this time. It looks as though Alaric will defeat all of his enemies in one day, but there are more surprises in store as others begin to appear at Darkheart HQ.
Is this the end of all superheroines? Or will something unexpected lead to Alaric’s defeat? Find out now…
