Up Down

So the internet is all totally on fire because Wonder Woman changed her clothes. Cool. Hater’s gonna hate. Defenders gonna defend. Commentators gonna comment.

I mean, I think she’s done it quite a few times, so it doesn’t seem like a big deal to me, but this one is being billed as a (or THE) big costume change. Honestly, though, having studied the timeline so much at this point, I think we’d really have to see if it sticks before talking about how big a deal it is.

Anyway, check it out. Pants! I think pants are good, right?

The leather jacket is a thing. Does it mean..

1. Leather jackets are back in? Is it even leather? Maybe it’s pleather. Or that weird synthetic stuff.

2. Wonder Woman is wearing it out of a slightly dated desire to be cool?

3. Wonder Woman really loves the Black Canary’s outfit and wanted in on the look?

4. She’s actually wearing it as a retro/ironic style statement?

It’s probably the irony, right?

The best thing about the jacket, probably, is now she has something to take off before she whups someone. You know… “uh-oh.. Jacket’s coming off.”

I’m fine with losing the flag look. I like the idea of her being more international.

Honestly, at first I wasn’t that into it, but after a day of seeing it again and again and again all over the internet, it’s kind of grown on me. Doesn’t it remind you a bit of her 90’s look? The one when she “wasn’t” Wonder Woman during the Challenge of Artemis arc?

Ok, I’ve spent way too much time thinking about superhero fashion today.

Not like I’ve cared when the Blue Beetle changed costumes. Or Guy Gardner wore that belly shirt. Well, maybe a little.

In related news (because it’s also in issue 600, though it features the old costume) this pin up by Adam Hughes is pretty great:

My favorite part is the girl in the background flexing. She kind of looks like Wondertot, actually, but I’m pretty sure she’s just an inspiring metaphor.

Update: Here we go, Yet Another Comics Blog posted a run down of her costumes through the years.
