The Super-Woman Porn That Almost Was

Let us journey back to a time before superhero sex fantasies were readily available at the click of mouse, before fan fiction, cosplay and Jim Balent’s “Tarot” gave superhero fetishists a bad name. The excellent Comics Legends Revealed recently introduced us to 1977′s “Ms. Magnificent,” a forgotten superhero-themed porno that drew the ire of DC Comics. Why was DC interested in a dirty movie from the “Deep Throat” era, you ask? Because Ms. Magnificent originally went by the name “Super-Woman.”

As CLR points out, DC has held the copyright to the Super-Woman name for decades, even if all they do it with it is occasionally put Lois in the costume. But when DC caught wind of Fantasy Films Productions using the name for an adult film starring Desiree Cousteau as a flying superheroine with an “S” on her ample chest, they immediately sent in the Super-Lawyers.With “Superman: The Motion Picture” on the way, DC couldn’t have a Super-Woman (with a green Kryptonite sex toy, no less) flying around and getting into wacky sex-capades with coworkers Lois and Clark. So DC demanded that the title be changed, the iconic “S” logo dropped, and every flying scene be excised from the film. (The judge disagreed with DC’s claims that they own the rights to flying, but agreed on all other counts.)

Hilariously, the porn company complied in the most low budget way possible: they went through the audio and cut all references to “Super-Woman.” So basically Ms. Magnificent went nameless throughout the entire movie. And to get rid of the logo, they just scratched the film until her chest was a giant blur. (Certainly not the desired effect.)

According to intrepid IMDB commenters, unedited versions of the film exist online. It might be worth seeking out, both as a curiosity, and for the “interstellar super-hero orgy on a flying saucer.” You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
