Black Scorpion Collection

Femme fatales were a big part of my childhood and one of them was Roger Corman's Black Scorpion.  The seductive crimefighter was played by Joan Severance in movies Black Scorpion and Black Scorpion II: Aftershock.  Michelle Lintel donned the mask in Black Scorpion: The Television Series which aired 22 episodes on the then Sci Fi Channel.  It's hard to pick a favorite Black Scorpion, but Joan did go topless in the movies so that may be my tie-breaker!  At the same time, one cannot discount Lintel's martial arts authenticity and equally alluring look.  The movies and TV series featured some mighty fine girl on girl action with the heroine squaring off against female villains.  Sadly, it's getting harder to find this campy crusader on DVD since no more units are being produced.  It should also come as no surprise that the TV series collection is often ridiculously priced!  However, one can find them for free on the Internet (if you look hard enough) or ripped onto DVD at comic book conventions for affordable prices.
