Thank You, Universe, for This Black Widow Action Figure

Okay, it's not perfect? But, hey, we'll take it

This new Black Widow action figure by Diamond Select makes me feel a lot better about life, the universe, and everything.

And the fact that sometimes she doesn't even get to be on The Avengers' DVD covers. But I digress.

Warrior Goddesses: Why Female Action Figures Are So Important

Teela!

For children of the '80s, action figures for girls were a new phenomenon on the market. Girls of my generation had a taste with the 1970s Lynda Carter Wonder Woman doll, but prior to that, toys marketed specifically to girls were often fashion dolls or baby dolls.
