Lots of good thoughts & comments here. I really enjoy reading all the different takes on the releases (and I appreciate the name checks; it means a lot that others enjoy my ramblings…) I get where the good Dr is coming from about the line between canon and non canon getting blurred. Lately I’ve come to view the non canon stories as “tales from the multiverse”, glimpses of the different timelines within the M.V. For instance in ‘Heroine Auction’ we’re told that Bluebird was publicly defeated by the Dark Heart leader and, therefore, didn’t take part in the superior invasion.… Read more »

Thanks to those (Darkwrath, Rob) who have been writing about the story implications of this episode. The explicit continuity link is amazing, and brings us back, I think, to where we were conceptually in the ongoing story before we dipped into the past. Warning: Long-winded, probably irresponsible speculation follows. To recap, we’ve known for awhile that the Crown Prince and 7th Dimension crew (which includes the Masked Man) have been collecting heroines for the Championship, and sure enough, the events of this video lead immediately to Spectrum’s debut in the Championship against Wonderstrike. Note that Spectrum loses that battle (and… Read more »

Well now that this is “out”, I want to say that this was absolutely brilliant writing by NGC to make the championship cannon. Based on everything I’ve watched (and I’ve watched everything NGC has put out the past 4 years) they were at least planning this from since 2017 with the 2017-2018 championship matches and the introduction of the 7th Dimension. Like I said before, a lot of things make sense now with the Championship revelation. I always found it strange that the heroines in the championship could always reference stuff that happens outside the ring but never vice versa.… Read more »

Well it worked out in a way I thought was excellent so great job all around. I still don’t see how Athena v Bluebird can work unless the Athena in Championship is a different Athena than in the story. There’s room for that possibility I guess since I don’t recall Athena making references to any specific events outside the ring when she squared off against Bluebird.

But early days yet. I’m now super eager to see where this all leads now. Should be interesting.

The way I see it, with multiverses anything can happen. The Athena in the Championship could be an Athena from another universe taken before her demise during the Invasion, or from a universe in which Athena didn’t die in the Invasion. If the latter, then that “Athena” could have experienced everything the Athena from “our” timeline did up to then, so her knowledge of continuity is the same up to a point. There’s a lot of evidence (not sure if it’s certain) that the Bluebird in the Championship is the one that Sister Fate enslaved in the “Broken Wings” story,… Read more »

This was utterly brilliant. I might have said the same thing if the entire run time was just Spectrum trying to break her chains, but the rest of it, oh my! As Rob_Hinx mentioned, the scene where she wanders around the room after the Masked Man disappears was fantastic, conveying what I’d consider “peril” much more than any bearhug or stomach blow could. The part where she heals her arm, and has this giddy laugh like “I can’t believe that worked, im going to kick your ass now” was another great little touch. And her final defeat, where the Masked… Read more »

Completely agree with you about her final defeat Ceej. Spectrum did a most wonderful job conveying fear and panic in that scene. And her sobbing from the heightened pain she was amazing. Great combination of acting and selling peril that needs mentioning.

Has NGC pressed left, down, down, up, triangle, square and start on their hand controller? I ask because recently they’ve unlocked an extra level of brutality. They’ve been to some dark and violent places before, for sure, but have you ever seen a video where the heroine has to disable herself before the action even starts? (Somehow, I don’t we’ll be seeing Spectrum’s escapologist routine on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’) I think I may have done Spectrum a dis-service in the past. I still think some of her expressions are over the top, but I’m wondering now if that isn’t who… Read more »

“…She’s an expressive, expansive character and she wears her heart on her sleeve (well, she doesn’t have sleeves but you get the point).”

Rob – Her gloves have sleeves, so it’s all good. 😉

There are three very specific reasons why I think one needs to get this First reason: That sequence when Spectrum had to dislocate her own arm to free herself from the chains? That was an AMAZING piece of acting by her. Just phenomenal and is point example why—forget for a moment about her selling hits and making the rights sounds in peril—I think she’s the best actress when it comes to ‘acting’. It was just nearly three minutes of Spectrum trying to painfully and agonizingly free herself and it was the best pure acting scene I’ve seen to date. Bar… Read more »

Co-signed. Spectrum is absolutely great in this. And yeah, as a Lady V fan, I get your feelings for Spectrum’s character.

Great video! Everyone who’s been waiting for the return of Spectrum should line up to get this one… she delivers! And if you wonder what the hype is, find out. Earlier this week, I was concerned that this video looked a bit like Sonica’s kidnap video from last month (Masked Man holds a heroine in his black room and beats her into submission) but apart from that basic setup, they’re very different. Spectrum is clearly in a different league than Sonica, and the Masked Man treats her with less contempt, but perhaps more cruelty than Sonica. For her part, although… Read more »

Spectrum’s BEST performance, since her first episode. I dunno what the guys at NGC changed this time in their production process, but do it like this again! My favorite part is when Spectrum gets her pain increased several fold by the villain, but it’s really too bad that she only gets hit twice during that time. That was the best part and her screams of pain were incredibly intense – it really brought the vid to a level that I don’t usually expect. An inconsistency though, Spectrum doesn’t seem to react properly to getting her already broken/dislocated left arm twisted… Read more »

Your focus is on different things than mine, RyonaKing, but I totally agree about Spectrum’s performance and the welcome intensity of this release. Also, love the idea of an opponent stripping Spectrum of one or both of her gloves! Since her gloves change color with her powers, they are at least a symbol of her might, maybe even necessary to exercise it. It might take a little finesse to take those long gloves off smoothly (or make it look like that’s happening) in the middle of a fight, but imagine Spectrum’s arms despoiled of her warrior’s gauntlets, her slender wrists… Read more »

Wow I love how exposed she looks… her uniform can’t even hide the pantyhose gusset. Her vulnerable area isn’t even protected anymore…

I was 50/50 whether to get this but when I saw the members gift it made my mind up. The actress who playes bluebird looked so sexy taking a beating clad in that outfit. Would have liked her to be in tight gloves and boots too but it was a five star scene nevertheless.
Looking forward to getting it.

Whoa, this looks stellar! I’ve been waiting to find out where Spectrum is going to fit into the current “open season” on heroines. I’m hoping it’s not a retread of Sonica’s kidnap episode, but even if it’s similar… it’s got Spectrum in it!

To be honest, I haven’t been the biggest fan of Spectrum in the past. Based on this trailer, that position has just been updated! My God there are some sexy shots in there. NGC forever!

My god Spectrum is smoking hot…however, I’m afraid this one is going to end like so many of the other NGC videos. She’ll start dominant, get “controlled” by the villain, then get KO’d by a blow and her mind will be trapped or something lame like that. Will probably still buy it just to see Spectrum because she is so damn sexy, but it’ll probably be the same ole NGC stuff in the end. Really hope I’m wrong.

Just from the trailer her acting seems to have improved leaps and bounds. I would pre-order if I could.

Instant purchase!! I feel like I’ve been waiting… forever… for a new Starshot video, but this Spectrum video looks too good to pass up.

This is looking so good. Spectrum is just so beautiful and so amazing that I honestly cannot get enough of her. Now to try and contain my excitement for the next four(!) days.

Honestly cannot stop watching the previews for this. I have nothing but endless love and affection for the character that is Spectrum, which I admit is a little weird given that the genre is about seeing heroines get beaten. But the actress, while admittingly not the best seller of peril, is frankly the best actress hands-down no questions asked in portraying a heroine/character and why I’m enamored.

Fingers crossed that she does put on a good performance peril wise but honestly, just seeing Spectrum and watching this actress portray her is more than enough for me.

Amazing as always. At he same time i don´t undertand why the others studios don´t learn from this… The style of shooting and details are so unique, they could get some ideas, because after watching these videos the others are so bored.

It’s an opinion, do not be offended please
