It's a Doll! It's a Film! It's Superheroes!

by Matt Stevens

There’s a faded, black-and-white photo hanging on my wall. It’s me at age three (when I was cute, as my older siblings tease), wearing a tiny Batman cape, mask, and t-shirt. Though I have no memory of this adorable getup (I was cute in it!), my earliest remembrances do include (to my mother’s horror) my hopping on the living room furniture — leaping tall buildings and shooting spider webs from my wrists!

Goddess of the Galaxy Barbie® Doll

Call her "out of this world," a "supernova of style," even a "glamtastic vision of futuristic fashion!" She's the Goddess of the Galaxy Barbie® Doll, and before she begins her fabulous reign on planet Earth, designer Bill Greening took a few moments to talk about this sci-fi-inspired sensation.

Where did you get your inspiration for Goddess of the Galaxy?
We're big fans of sci-fi in our house. I'm also a kid of the 1970s, so sci-fi was really influential in my childhood - in TV, movies, comics, toys, etc. I also think there's a lot of fashion glamour in sci-fi.
