Feminist Content: Princess Magnolia has a secret identity as the stereotype-breaking Princess In Black, a superhero who answers the call whenever trouble appears. The Princess in Black is not just a “spunky” girl, she is actively aware she’s breaking standard princess protocol. She also inspires others to be more than society expects of them, when Duff the Goat Boy decides he can follow her example and become his own superhero though he’s viewed as a lowly goat boy. (LZ)
