Wonder Woman’s Makeover Appears To Involve Jeggings

I guess after 69 years of sporting the same outfit, you might want a makeover, but oh, Wonder Woman, why jeggings? To be fair, the 600th issue of the series is also giving Wonder Woman a revised back story. Writer J. Michael Straczynski notes that:

Wonder Woman, instead of growing up on Paradise Island with her mother, Queen Hippolyta, and her Amazon sisters, is smuggled out as a baby when unknown forces destroy her home and slaughter its inhabitants.

To go along with that her new outfit is supposed to be darker and “less costumey.” Which is cool – we just hope she still has a golden lasso.

    They do look like jeggings in this picture, but I saw a few panels with the new look and they just look like tight, slightly shiny (like American Apparel stuff) leggings. Also, I think that might be the golden lasso on her right hip– although it seems to be sewn to her clothes.

    Makeover? She looks like she came out of the set of Purple Rain.
