The superheroines also represent various ethnicities, professions, orientations, subcultures and neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, with many real and recognizable locations used for film shoots. The series has been positively reviewed in several regional publications.

Episode 8 “The Liquid Engineers” introduces the Chinese heroine X-Machina and the villainess Dysphoria.
Carnegie Mellon mechanical engineer Kimberly Chiang is designing a vehicle that runs on magnetism. Her lab assistant, Maris Solas, feels overworked and underappreciated.
During the night of the meteor, Kim is bombarded with dark energy that not only grants her magnetic powers, but also the ability to instantly fix and repair any machine. As the heroine X-Machina, she feels a compulsion to fix broken machines around campus. But a lab accident with a laser combines with meteoric energy to give Maris the deadly power to decay anything she touches, and the resentful lab tech transforms into the evil Dysphoria, bent on making Kim and her boyfriend Bobby’s lives into hell. Can X-Machina use her mechanical genius to figure out how calm Dysphoria down and redirect her powers for the benefit of humanity?

When the meteor strikes the city, the dark energy imbues Anna with the powers of the big cats, including strength, speed, agility, heightened senses and sharp claws. Meanwhile, Sarah’s serum combines with the same energy to transform her into the vengeful Serpenta, possessing the powers of snakes, including hypnosis and a poisonous bite. Sarah goes to work for developer Mason Brick, who is trying to drive out the residents of Homewood so he can buy up their properties. Anna discovers Brick’s plan thanks to her mother, and then works with her wise pastor, a relic-hunting professor, and members of her church’s youth group to debut as the cat-powered heroine

Darsha receives a phone call from oil baroness Olivia Queen, offering to buy out the pair’s windmill designs. That night during the meteor strike, both Zaynab and Darsha absorb superpowers. Darsha adopts the persona of the greedy Darbouka, wielding massive sonic blasts and stealing her partner’s files to sell to Olivia the Quingpin. Zaynab, on the other hand, becomes the virtuous Arabic heroine Jinniyya (the female djinn), with augmented strength and the power of the winds.

I bought 5 episodes, although the fighting level is low, I really enjoyed them ! As a peril fan I would like to see our superheroines knocked out and captured more often. I am expecting more challenging supervillans in the future.
My personal favorite superheroine is Jinnyya.
Keep up the good work !
Thanks for the support pulphead, it’s much appreciated! Since the first season is all about origin episodes of both heroines and villains, there is indeed a higher level of exposition, although there are knockouts or captures in most episodes. But as we move into the second season next year, the action level will ramp up as we include multiple heroines, multiple villains, and more danger scenarios in every episode. The plot will thicken, as will the peril, so join the fun! As for Jinniyya, we’re glad you like the world’s first Lebanese Christian superheroine, who represents the populous Maronite-Arab community… Read more »
looking forward to the second season !! 🙂
That theme-song is amazing. I loved it!
Thank you Lucia! It was literally written in 1984 (the original music, not the current heroine-related lyrics) and has the authentic 80s synthpop feel.
Although we can’t make films as hard-edged as yours, we appreciate what you do as well, and it’s exciting to see a talented new female producer who gets to work with the likes of Coco and Alex David. May you go from strength to strength!
Right back at you friend! Love me some synthpop. Actually listened to the song a couple of times, it is catchy! Hard-edged isn’t everything. Your films have a /fantastic/ pulp retro feeling to them and I mean that in the best way possible. Very classic comic-book.
Thanks Lucia! We like to draw influences from every age of comics, TV shows and movies. And of course the immense SHIP realm. We would like to propose a collaboration. If you are interested, please send a short message to info@Heroineburgh.com.
