Last night DC Comics revealed Wonder Woman’s new duds starting in this week’s issue #600. The new look was designed by Jim Lee. They’ve kept the lasso, magic bracelets, and tiara, but the long-standing bathing suit is gone. The new costume also comes with a re-write of her origin by J. Michael Straczynski. For the full story, click here to visit Newsarama.
While I’m sure the majority of fans will scream “EPIC FAIL”, I’m actually okay with the redesign. There are certain elements I’m not terribly fond of, however, the overall design is more realistic for a female superhero. Additionally, I’m hoping for a live action Wonder Woman feature film sometime in the next few years. This costume is more likely to be believable on the big screen and taken seriously as compared to the star-spangled bathing suit. Like I said, I’m probably in the minority.
I’ll be interested to see what the following sites have to say about this new look:
