The film draws inspiration from Batman, in that the superhero Black Scorpion is a vigilante with no actual superpowers.
Darcy Walker (played by Joan Severance) is a police detective with an alter ego called Black Scorpion, who fights crime at night. In addition to impressive martial arts skills, she is also equipped with a range of technological inventions and a special car.
Her detective partner, Michael Russo (played by Bruce Abbott) is unaware of her secret identity. The only person who knows who she is at night is a car thief-turned-tech nerd named Argyle (played by Garrett Morris).
When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
