Black Canary Barbie isn’t your typical Barbie from Mattel. Based on DC Comics superheroine of the same name, she features fishnet stockings, short shorts and a black leather outfit that is sure to have PC parents sounding the alarm – although this doll is probably not aimed at the kids (we hope).

Looking just now at Amazon (link), it seems to be a hot seller, as one seller only had two left in stock. There seems to be quite a few listed on eBay (link) with Buy it Now prices ranging from $40 to $50.

While you’re at it, check out the Show Girl Barbie on eBay (link) as well.

The product description: “When Barbie visits Star City, she needn’t worry about crime when Dinah Lance, the Black Canary, is on the case! Mattel recreates the DC Comics’ heroine as a Barbie Famous Friends: Black Canary doll, which stands nearly 12″ tall. With her comics-authentic costume of black leather jacket, black fishnet stockings, and black thigh boots, Barbie’s friend Black Canary will keep the criminal element at bay!”
