Wonder Woman gets a Makeover

DC has decided to change Wonder Woman’s costume after 69 years, which you might have already read about in the New York Times.  It will be debuted in the 600th issue of the monthly series with a new alternative history (read about it here).

J. Michael Straczynski, the new writer of the series said this about the wardrobe change:

“She’s been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941… 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… What woman only wears only one outfit for 60-plus years?”

Feel free to send your hate mail or love letters to DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee because he designed the new look.
