- Anita Mui, the "funny-looking Madonna", is the wife of a policeman, but secretly a superhero: Wonderwoman or Shadow Fox, depending on the translation.
- Michelle Yeoh is supervillain who is stealing babies for an evil sorcerer. Her scientist boyfriend has given her a cloak of invisibility. Anita and her husband are on her trail.
- Maggie Cheung is Mercy, short for Mercenary. Dressed in leather bustiers and knee pads, she fights for the highest bidder with a motorcycle and a fistful of dynamite.
