Michele Threefoot’s superhero of choice wears a black robe, and has the power of dissent.

The eight-year-old Columbia girl chose Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for superhero day at her school.  She wore the full costume to school in December, down to the glasses and collar. According to CBS News, Michele said he liked Ginsburg because she “fight justice and inequality.” She’s been pretty obsessed with the book “I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark.”

The photo went viral getting shared like photos do. As she’s known to do, Ginsburg is helping it stick around for longer than expected. The Notorious RBG wrote a letter to Michele herself.

“You look just like me! May you continue to thrive on reading and learning. Every good wish,” it said, according to CBS News.

Take note, SCOTUS. That whole saying about imitation and flattery works.
