Pakistani television now has a counterpart to America's Wonder Woman — a burka-wearing superheroine who teaches at an all-girls' school by day and employs her secret martial arts tactics to battle anti-school thugs by night.
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.
He said in the AP report that each show "is centered around a moral," but "it's cloaked in pure entertainment, laughter, action and adventure."
"It is not a sign of oppression," he said. "She is using the burka to hide her identity like other superheroes. Since she is a woman, we could have dressed her up like Catwoman or Wonder Woman, but that probably wouldn't have worked in Pakistan."
