At the tender age of 69, Wonder Woman is losing the hotpants and her maker has given her pants instead!
The new costume, created by celebrated artist and DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee, is made up of a red top with the signature “WW” logo; a cropped blue biker jacket with white stars; and skin-tight navy blue pants and matching boots.
“The bracelets are still there, but made more colorful, tied on the inside and over the hand, with a script W on each of them that form WW when she holds them side by side…and if you get hit by one of them, it leaves a W mark,” said writer J. Michael Straczynski, in a post on DC Comics’s “The Source.” “This is a Wonder Woman who signs her work.”
J. Michael Straczynski – who penned the screenplay for Angelina Jolie’s 2008 drama “Changeling” – is taking over the comic book series, and he told the New York Times that he’s excited about Wonder Woman’s new wardrobe.
“She’s been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941,” Straczynski said. “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.”
And besides, he added, “What woman only wears only one outfit for 60-plus years?”
The new look will be unveiled in issue number 600, which hits newstands today!
What do you think of her new look? (I hate it! Wonder Woman was the epitome of sexy, and now she looks boring!)
