I apologize profusely for the insane geekery that I'm about to drop on your sorry (albeit much less geeky) ass.

that's not a barbie.

That's a DC Comics superheroine named Black Canary. And she isn't new. She's more or less had the same outfit since the late 1940s. So technically, *technically* speaking, if they made dolls of Ms Dinah Laurel Lance back in the 40s, Grandmother Oline could have a doll that was more or less identical as hypothetical Oline-progeny's doll.

It all goes in a circle. and the circle is life.

from 1947:

hmm... i think you've been sufficiently humbled, pirate. but thank you. thank you for impressing us all with your knowledge of comic book inspired fashion dolls.

tee hee!

apparently the pirate wasn't humbled enough after all, if you're reducing a superhero to a fashion doll.
