“The Powerpuff Girls” gains new member, and she’s black

Are y’all ready for a new Powerpuff Girl?

Big news coming out of Cartoon Network is that their popular characters, the Powerpuff Girls, will get a new sister, and she’ll be black.

According to Geeks of Color, the new character, which sports blue hair, can be seen in the international marketing reel for Cartoon Network.

There’s no word on what her name will be or what her powers are going to be, but the character’s voice actress, South African singer Toya Delazy, has released this image of her in the recording booth.

I’ll be honest—it’s been a while since I’ve last seen The Powerpuff Girls; I haven’t touched the reboot yet. But I am intrigued to see how this new Powerpuff will interact with the other characters and how she’ll positively influence current fans and new ones alike.

The newest Powerpuff Girl will make her debut Sept. 17.
