Ms. Magnificent- Supergirls Then & Now

It's no secret that the Internet has been great for Superheroine & Female Fighting fans such as myself. It has provided fans greater access to material and material greater access to fans. Combined with advancements in digital technology, it has lowered the barriers to entry for producers to get into the market to a point where it is highly affordable.
While this is certainly true for female fighting and women's wrestling, it is even more so in the Superheroine genre. In the 70's & 80's, there was a lot more wrestling material out there. Harder to find? Yes, but certainly out there. Ron Dvorkin & California Supremes even go back to the age of super 8 mm films, and they aren't the only ones.
Whatever the reasons may be, it doesn't look like much Superheroine fetish material exists from that time.
A notable exception is a porn film previously mentioned in this blog called Ms. Magnificent. It was originally entitled Super Woman, but the producers got sued and had to make changes, including the name. They had to mute out any references to copyrighted characters of words (like Clack Kent, Super Woman, Lois Lane, Kryptonite) and they also had to scratch out the "S" emblems from the costume and cape. The film is described by as a

"A Sci-Fi Comedy sex-epic that stars Hustler Centerfold, succulent and curvaceous, Desiree Cousteau as a super-heroine with powers of flight, super-strength, enhanced senses and a weakness to a glowing green mineral. With superb performances all-around, "Ms. Magnificent" is a 70's flick with all the kick and sexy intrigue of mainstream entertainment!"

It's a classic example of the times where you would buy an entire movie just for one scene. Moreover, one scene that, like the whole movie, is not very well done, but worth it's weight in gold simply because of the scarcity of this type of material. It's similar to very hard to find scenes of Magnificent Mimi or Misty Blue Simmes being pounded and pinned. You cherish whatever you can find, and let your own imagination fill in the blanks.

A quick Google search will tell you all about the movie, so I'm just going to concentrate on the one scene that made/makes my heart pound. The Superheroine confronts her evil nemesis only to be exposed to a Dildo made of pure kryptonite. She is quickly weakened & stripped. The evil villainess straps on the dildo and the rest is very sraightforward. She is almost done in but the villainess's overconfidence allows her to be distracted etc, etc...

The scene sucked, but I loved it. A fantasy come true. Yes, she passed out way too quickly after being exposed to the Kryptonite. Yes, the camera didn't do a long slow pan over the mighty heroine's unconscious body. Yes, the legal editing made things even worse. Nevertheless, it was glorious. A beautiful thing! It's even better today now that I have burned it into a DVD and can watch this one scene is slow motion without damaging the tape.

So now we are in the era of broadband Internet and digital pictures. The women are gorgeous, the costumes are fabulous and there are plenty of both. a collage from the universe
Only now I have discovered that the superheroine fetish branches out in many different locations. Even if we all agree, for example, that we like to see Supergirl weakened by kryptonite, there are many variations on what people like to see happen next. Future postings will deal with these variations as well as the different websites that cater to them. For now I just wanted to compare pictures of "then and now." The collage on the left shows how far things have come along for us female super hero fans. The images are from the superheroine universe, a PG rated girl power series of websites that does heroine stories. No connection between their site and Superheroine porn is implied. They are just a wonderful example of how good things could be. One day I hope to make a DVD with these caliber women and costumes. It will happen too. Just wait! :-)
