I was afraid that I would sound like too much of a Starshot superfan in my review, but after Darkwrath’s comment, I’m not really concerned about that anymore. Nevertheless, I feel the same way about her and could’ve written the same things. I think she’s just extraordinary, and would love to see her in… everything. As for the video, I expected to love it, and I did, although the scenario and the combat wasn’t anything all that special. It really comes down to the performers, and while Starshot does everything excellently (I think she’s the best natural actor working with… Read more »

Yeeeesss!! The Starshot photoset was very beautiful. She is very beautiful (I feel like I’ve said that a couple times already). The photoset accompanying this video was to die for. So many great poses, particularly those with the punching bag to which a couple of them had her kind of straddling the bag with one of her legs. Christ, Almighty. Then there’s the intense looks she gives in these photos. It’s the kind of look where if she were to lead me into the pit of hell with that gaze, I would neither care nor notice but would completely be… Read more »

Yeah, she’s got “the look.”

Starshot is the best. Starshot is the best. Starshot is…..The best. Seeing her act and sell peril and perform strikes makes me once again reiterate my claim that every month needs Starshot in it. And a couple of those months should have a Starshot 2020 mini-series where she is star actress and we are treated to over 20 glorious minutes of this amazing talent. She has become the complete package as performer, actress and heroine in peril and I absolutely love every moment that she is on screen. For me, I enjoy this because Starshot gives her usual A plus… Read more »

Starshot has the same quality that Bluebird has; micro-gestures. It’s the tiny expressions and body language that look totally natural (so much so that they can be taken for granted) that speak of real acting talent.

Great review, thanks! How are the KOs?

They were fine though not the highlight of the video for me. Starshot suffers one where a simple knock to the face causes her to collapse to the mat and Wonderstrike suffers one with a kick to the face.

Thanks for the reply!

Lots of fun to be had here. In fact it looks like everyone had fun doing this. We start off with Starshot materialising and the announcer teasing her about being back “for another defeat”. Starshot points out that he doesn’t choose to be there and just gets “beamed’ into the ring. (There’s a potential for some future comedy here; imagine The Deceptress being beamed in, hair in rollers, one boot on, one boot off. ‘Hey I wasn’t ready’!) Next up Wonderstrike appears, both girls are dismissive of each other until it’s revealed that they’re not fighting each other. Alaric ‘The… Read more »

I really loved this one. Love to see starshot and wonderstrike together. I love the changes in wonderstrike costume and i loved the fight. I insist that i want to see the announcer fight with the girls sometime. If it is with the starshot better because it seems both have great chemestry. Ah and i loved the stomp! Please more stomps!
Is this a new ring right? It looked great

SIgh, I’m quite dissapointed with this one. Had the feeling from watching the trailer. In short, I feel that this is a non-dynamic submission-based match. Really makes me think back about Miss Freedom vs Sister Fate. That one also was submission heavy, but felt a lot better. This one is slow and drawn out. I guess if you like bear hugs (which I don’t) you may enjoy this vid. Darn it, I was so looking forward to this one. NGC, do you guys have more than one director or more than one editor or something? Because I find myself really… Read more »

I think there’s some merit in what you have to say about the fight choreography here. The funny thing was that I had watched this championship match three or four times, saw this comment and was immediately confused by it. I certainly didn’t find it submission heavy but rather fairly balanced. But then I was watching it almost strictly for Starshot. I began to watch the Wonderstrike portions and I kind of see what you mean. To be completely honest though, I kind of sort of wish that there was more of an emphasis on physical blows myself. There was… Read more »

Sigh. So this is going to make me sound like a nitpicking asshole but I’m confused by what NGC means by Starshot and Wonderstrike have “struggled” and have been “squashed” by Alaric in the past. It’s true of Wonderstrike but it’s actually not true of Starshot. The canonical ending of the non-canonical special mission involving Starshot and Alaric has Starshot actually WINNING that fight. In fact, that is the only fight on record where Alaric has been defeated by a heroine. And to be fair, one can argue (correctly) that Starshot got pummeled and knocked out in the first half… Read more »

If it’s any consolation, I thought the same thing.

Just one more day to find out if my vote carried the day! Sure I’ll love it no matter what the outcome, though. I’m also looking forward to the members gift tomorrow. Lucy Z wasn’t my favorite Fail-Safe Sister, but she had a fantastic run of videos in the Championship (although her record wasn’t so fantastic.) I’m hoping she’s not gone for good, but it’s been awhile since we’ve seen her. More Lucy in 2019? Members also get a chance to pick up a photo set of the breathtaking Starshot. Maybe SS could do one of those posed photosets with… Read more »

My wish for 2019: That every month there’s a Starshot video. And whether that’s a championship match, a story episode, a non-canon entry or a video of her cleaning windows, every month needs Starshot in it. She is just too good and too downright gorgeous not to grace our screens on a constant basis.

Also agreed! And also think it’s time to see Malicia take control of her again. The rivalry must continue.

I’m down for another Malicia encounter. But only if Starshot comes out on top this time. I’m tired of all you humiliating my beloved heroines……………no matter how amazing and enticing it might be to see them crushed and defeated by their rivals.

Which, again, is amazing to watch on screen.

I’m all about a heroine victory – I’d love to see Malicia thinking that she had finally entranced Starshot for good, only for her to break free and take Malicia down! Enticing, right?

Dunno if I’m alone here, but I kinda want to see Malicia get the stuffing beaten out of her!
