Black Canary Barbie: The New Fashion Drama Queen

Black Canary is a fictional character from DC Comics that first appeared in 1947. She 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. The combination of the Black Canary's courage, fighting prowess, and her sex appeal (accentuated by her characteristic fishnet stockings) has resulted in her being referred to as "The Blonde Bombshell."

This year, Barbie doll captures this super heroine's essence, wearing her signature black "leather" bodysuit and jacket, patterned tights, and black boots with "golden" details. Long honey blond hair with bangs and black gloves with "golden" details complete the look.

However, prior to its release date, the Black Canary Barbie is causing a fuss and stirring drama with her fashion choice. A group of Christians and parents were outraged with the doll's suggestive clothing.
