A few hours ago, DC revealed a new uniform for Wonder Woman. This is her third design change since the Jim Lee costume from 2010, which drew a huge amount of outrage. Instead of the traditional star-spangled one-piece bikini, Wonder Woman now sports full sleeves and pants, and the stupid turtleneck that seems to be obligatory with the New 52.
Anyway, if you want to take a look, here it is:
I’ll say it – I’m not a fan. I’m all for a Wonder Woman that’s actually fully clothed, but this costume is ugly. I like the armored shoulders, and the bigger gauntlets, but what the hell are those blades coming out of those gauntlets for? Why are they putting a corset on top of the skintight outfit? Haven’t they learned from the 90’s where girls who put spaghetti tops on top of their t-shirts looked ridiculous?
It’s badass, I admit. She looks like she’s about to ruin somebody’s day, but still ugly. Honestly, though, I don’t think this is Wonder Woman’s worst costume.
Let us not forget the first New 52 design (which I actually kinda like):
Or the time Artemis became Wonder Woman and showed up in this:
Man, the Jim Lee/JMS Wonder Woman costume is looking fantastic now, right?

A daring new direction begins with the arrival of a brand-new villain! But while he may be new to us, he’s not new to the world he seeks to tame. And speaking of villains, Donna Troy’s quest to destroy Wonder Woman ratchets up another gear (if that’s even possible!), while the games of the Gods bring dark portents to the ultimate Amazon!
