Michelle Lintel as Black Scorpion

The former Miss Kansas is performing most of her own stunts in Black Scorpion, playing an ex-cop who dons a mask and fights a bizarre cast of Batman-like villains. The role is a dream come true for Lintel, who's never lost her childhood love for the cartoon superhero Wonder Woman.

"I always admired Wonder Woman because she was so strong," says Lintel, a long-time martial arts aficionado who is proficient in Tae Kwon Do. "My office is like a Wonder Woman shrine. For my birthday this year, I got more Wonder Woman stuff than I could possibly dream of."

The showbiz newcomer says her next goal is to become a sort of female Arnold Schwarzenegger on the big screen.
"I want to get out there and kick some more ass, basically," she says with a laugh, adding, "But in a good way!" Spoken like a true superhero.
