"We looked at where there was white space in the market and found there was a lack of product like this, but a large demand,” Dave Springob, vice president of licensing for Fruit of the Loom told Parenting.com. “Girls wanted to enjoy their superheroes just as much as boys did." A call for more kick-ass girl options in the blogospere, led by Tom Burns of the Good Men Project, was a happy coincidence, as the underwear were already in development.

Would you buy these for your daughter?
