In an earlier version, Blair dove low as E-Merl approached, letting his circlet wash over her, but at Phil’s instigation, we revised her attack into this wounded-bird routine, an obvious improvement. Blair’s greatest power is her ability to lie convincingly, and E-Merl’s not exactly stupid, but he is the easiest mark on the team.

Also revised: Tamara using a German suplex and Blair using more aikido-style movements. For Blair, I originally had judo, a fighting style that, like Stan Lee, I may have leaned on too heavily for a while.

The rest of the fight has a chaotic energy I like. We could’ve just picked a few matchups to focus on, but continually switching things up like this keeps everyone on their toes.
