Wonder Woman’s New Wonderment
If you thought Wonder Woman’s patriotic hot pants, red and gold bustier and red hot, knee-high boots made villains do bad things just to get all tied up in her lasso of truth, just wait until you see her modern-day makeover revealed in the 600th issue of the comic.
Now super sonic spin into action after the jump to see her new, edgier look!
Hubba, hubba…Wonder Woman’s new costume was created by DC Comics artist and co-publisher Jim Lee and features the distinct “WW” logo, a blue biker jacket embellished with white stars over a red top paired with skin-tight, a**-kicking navy blue pants and boots.

WW writer J. Michael Straczynski posted on DC Comics’ blog “The Source“:
“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. This is a Wonder Woman who signs her work.”
This should be enough warning not to mess with the sassy new Wonder Woman. In the 600th issue (out now) the origins of the mighty Amazon crime-fighter also gets revamped for the 21st century version of the comic.
Straczynski added, “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.”
