For only $9.95, you can get your own “caped crusader that fights anti-intellectualism, ignorance, and censorship everywhere.”

Nancy, a best-selling author, librarian, literary critic, and reader, is definitely deserving of an action figure of her own. Not only did she win Librarian of the Year in 2011, but she also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association in the same year.

Her efforts to spread literacy to all is definitely an underrated superhero quality.
