Wonder Woman Gets An Upgrade

By Wyatt Earp | July 1, 2010

I guess this babe needs to change her avatar.

Remember the original Wonder Woman? She donned hot pants, a low-cut bustier, and shot most American males straight into puberty. It was an iconic look, but as is usually the case, some knucklehead had to ruin it for the rest of us. Naturally, everything I liked about Wonder Woman has been sent to the recycle bin, and she now looks like everybody else. Specifically? Lame.

Take a gander of the “new” Wonder Woman – if you dare.

Comic book vixen Wonder Woman is trading in her star-spangled hot pants for an updated look featuring leggings and spurs, according to an IGN interview published Tuesday.

Writer J. Michael Straczynski hopes to bring about a major shift in the Wonder Woman look and story. She is gaining a slick new costume courtesy of Korean-American comic book artist Jim Lee of “X-Men” fame.

Gone are the beachwear bottoms, red bustier with matching go go boots and clunky gold cuffs, as Wonder Woman slips into a dark blue leggings, a studded denim jacket and a pair of gilded biker gloves that would make a Hell’s Angel jealous.

A studded denim jacket? Our superheroes are using the Bedazzler now?

    But does the Bedazzler deflect bullets?

    The red, white, and blue with the star probably offended liberals because it reminded them of some obscure passage in saul alinskys book to reject all vestiges of the evil American empire… yadda yadda …now she’s softer
    more diverse kinda like a creampuff.
    At least with the old Wonder Woman, the evil doers seeing a half naked, star spangeled bannered, growling woman with a dominatrix attitude heading at them had something to quake in their boots about. In fact we could have used her at Guantanamo.

    “How does she fight in that thing without all her parts flying out?”

    How does she fly in an invisible plane? WHO CARES! She’s Wonder Woman! She probably wears a Wonder Bra.

    “How does she carry her stuff?”

    How did Batman carry shark repellent, night vision goggles, batarangs, a lasso, smoke grenades, evidence bags, a grapple gun, taser, and listening devices in his utility belt? Again, who cares? They’re ruining it!

    In my opinion, there will never be a better Wonder Woman than Linda Carter. She had the face, the body, and the perfect outfit.

    Studded denim jacket? WTF! she is now fashion-blunder woman.

    Just another liberal piece of shit!

    Wonderful. Not.

    The new Wonder Woman looks like Betty Boop might if Betty grew up and started hanging out with tweaker outlaw motorcycle gangers.

    Why the frakkin’ hell is Hollywood – and their Manhattan cousins, for that matter – bound and determined to rape and defile every fond memory of my childhood?!

    Well, on the upside, parents of 13 year old boys won’t have to wait as long to use their bathroom.

    With Linda Carter there was no wondering she was all WOMAN!

    I’m surprised they didn’t give her a belly shirt and a tramp stamp.

    Sorry, I also prefer my “Wonder Woman” the old-fashioned, TRADITIONAL way…

    Besides, don’t we ALREADY have a ROGUE?

    This is a crime against humanity. It’s about as bad as “new” Coke.

    Fenway – I think only the Vajazzler does that.

    Jon – If Lynda Carter wore this getup, I wouldn’t be interested in the least.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Agreed wholeheartedly. She always made my pants grow tight.

    Robbie – Hold on, I was just picturing you in the original Wonder Woman outfit. Aaaaand . . . done!

    Sally Anne – Next up? A Members Only jacket.

    Watuschskie – Don’t hold back. Tell us what you really think.

    Wes S. – Because political-correctness is taking over and becoming retroactive.

    CP – Definitely not.

    Rick – With a capital “W.”

    BobG – It’s probably just not visible.

    Bob G. – We do, from the X-Men, and she’s hotter than this thing.

    Mike45 – And I have never seen her birth certificate. Heh.

    Sully – It’s a dead heat.

    It’s SO 80′s. Did DC hire Zombie Jim Shooter?

    While I am less than thrilled with the 1st apearance of the new look for WW, I am willing to give the new storyline a chance. JMS has done some very interesting and excellent work such as Babylon5.

    Looks like a pretty standard anime heroine get-up to me. I’d say it’s less PC’ness and more of a response to shifting consumer tastes, kind of like the Captain America change.
