In this Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 photo, Pakistani schoolgirls, who were displaced with their families from Pakistan's tribal areas due to fighting between militants and the army, chant prayers during a class to pay tribute for five female teachers and two aid workers who were killed by gunmen, at a school, on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan. 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.(AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)
