So, Jim Lee redesigned Wonder Woman’s outfit (Here is a rundown of pretty much every outfit she has worn). It’s been the talk around town for costume changes. I have seen it pop up in non-comic changes. And most, it seems less than favorable. But when I weigh the pros and cons of the change… well..
A less star spangled appearance. I get that Wonder Woman was created at a time of war, and that her outfit was meant to convey a patriotic flavor. But the fact is, she is an Amazon steeped in greek mythologies.
It’s a more functional outfit, overall.
It’s not a swimsuit, making Wonder Woman’s physical assets a bit less of a focus.
For someone who engages in modern combat? Bare legs seems odd (although, many ancient cultures did fight bare legged) and impractical.
Loss of iconic image.
Really…those are all I can think of. I guess for me the jury is still out on how I feel about the change. It is better than red and blue Superman…that’s for sure.
