Wonder Woman Reboot

3 07 2010

Wonder Woman #600 has brought a new story and style to Wonder Woman. The issue is grittier than the previous Wonder Woman comics. The origin of Wonder Woman has changed, giving her ties to Humans as well as Amazons. She has less powers in this issue, but she may develop them as the story continues. The most drastic change is her outfit. Sorry guys, but the famous blue panties are gone…and replaced with pants! It looks like the feminists have won this time. It’s not so bad though. She’s still hot and she kicks ass!

Designer of the costume, Jim Lee says, “She’s been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941,” said Straczynski in the article . “If you’re going to make a statement about bringing Wonder Woman into the 21st century, you need to be bold and you need to make it visual. I wanted to toughen her up, and give her a modern sensibility. The original costume was the American flag brought to life,” said Lee. “This one is a little more universal.”

Wonder Woman #600 is in stores now.
