Fishnets, leather boots and jacket, thick eyeliner. Not your Mother?s Barbie. And not mine either (Oh, if only. My childhood would have been infinitely more interesting).
Mattel?s newest release is Black Canary Barbie, ostensibly based on the DC Comics superheroine of the same name
Black Canary is noted for her martial-arts skills and her “Canary Cry” ? a high powered, sonic scream with the ability to shatter objects and incapacitate villains. Among the first generation of superheroes, she was a member of the Justice Society of America, the first superhero team to appear in comic books.
Black Canary Barbie is slated to hit store shelves in September under the Black Label collection . Understandably, this new Dominatrix incarnation of Barbie is causing a bit of an uproar. The Sun is there
I?ll spare you a Barbie diatribe and leave you with this question: who would buy this for their daughter?
