Remember this? 2

I loved Rima!

She was in the Superfriends, usually teamed with Wonder Woman. Rima was Hanna-Barbera's half-assed attempt to bring a cultural and racial composition of the otherwise white Super Friends.

But there was more to Rima. She was a DC heroine who could talk to birds, befriend animals, and plucking poison darts from the air. Like her counterpart, Tarzan, Rima lived in the jungle, swing on vines, and was white.

However, her ethnicity was changed into a Latina once she enter the cartoon world.
