Pakistan Burka Avenger

This Thursday, July 11, 2013 photo shows a poster for the "Burka Avenger" cartoon series, which is scheduled to start running on Geo TV in early August. Wonder Woman and Supergirl now have a Pakistani counterpart in the pantheon of female superheroes _ one who shows a lot less skin. Meet Burka Avenger: a mild-mannered teacher with secret martial arts skills who uses a flowing black burka to hide her identity as she fights local thugs seeking to shut down the girls' school where she works. Sadly, it's a battle Pakistanis are all too familiar with in the real world.
