06.30.2010 - Its been definitely a long time counting sixty nine years since 1941 that Wonder Woman came out in DC Comics as one of the iconic characters where it was dominated by the popularity of Batman and Superman.

After a long time she trades her iconic wardrobe and gets new look in the upcoming #600 issue. with dark leggings, a studded denim jacket and heeled boots -- might be something from the closet of Lisbeth Salander, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (but in a size zero).

Writer J. Water Straczynski noted Wonder Woman's need for a restyling: "What woman only wears one outfit for 70 years? What woman doesn’t accessorize? And more to the point, as many women have lamented over the years…how does she fight in that thing?"

Artist and co-publisher of DC Comics Jim Lee created the new costume, which replaces the most familiar red-white-and-blue themed bustier and knee-length boots for the new decade.
"Visually, the character seems edgier than before but stylish enough to warrant a second, albeit cautious, glance. The jacket and boots confirm the costume’s functionality and the open, thinner tiara and shaped bracelets reveal a lighter, even youthful, bent to the Amazonian Princess." says Lee.

Honestly its a different look from the classic iconic costume, that fueled every fan boys dreams. But the new look seems less like it was made by cheerleader-obsessed guys. Though not like it came out from a World war II-era patriotic themes. Its more appropriate for Wonder Woman to look better in the 21st Century I'll say.
