Black Scorpion II: Aftershock, also known as Black Scorpion II: Ground Zero, is a 1997 comedy-action film starring Joan Severance as a crime fighting superhero. Roger Corman was the executive producer.[1][2][3][4]

Darcy Walker is a police detective in Angel City, a fictionalized version of Los Angeles. Her secret identity is the Black Scorpion, a comic book style vigilante. The Black Scorpion does not have any super powers but, like Batman, she fights for justice using a combination of martial arts and advanced technology, including her high-tech car, the Scorpionmobile. The film's exaggerated characters and unrealistic events are portrayed with a humorous camp aesthetic.

Black Scorpion II: Aftershock is a sequel to 1995's Black Scorpion. It was followed in 2001 by a Black Scorpion TV series that starred Michelle Lintel in the title role.
