So apparently starting with issue #600 (out today), Wonder Woman is hanging up her patriotic panties for yoga pants. In other news, Wonder Woman comic book sales to perverts have dropped 85%. Per Wonder Woman writer J. Michael Straczynski:
It's a look designed to be taken seriously as a warrior, in partial answer to the many female fans over the years who've asked, "how does she fight in that thing without all her parts falling out?") She can close it up to pass unnoticed...open it for the freedom to fight...lose the jacket or keep it on...it has pockets (the other fan question, "where does she carry anything in that outfit?", it can be accessorized...it's a Wonder Woman look designed for the 21st century. 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...letting her enemies know that she's getting closer.
"This is Wonder Woman reborn, literally and metaphorically: fast, elegant, tough, smart...the savior of her people, their guardian and protector...avenging the fall of Paradise Island, searching to discover why Paradise Island was abandoned by the gods. In the end, what she discovers will change her life and the world forever...and she will come face to face with a decision that will mean life or death for the entire human race."
I didn't actually read any of that because I'm too busy Photoshopping her pants back off, but I assume it had something to do with not wanting emergency services to see her granny panties in the event she crash her invisible plane. God, I bet Lynda Carter is rolling in her grave. Haha, what do you mean she's not dead? 1-800-CONTACTS what?!

Thanks to The Superficial Writer, who just printed out a copy of my Photoshopped version and took into the supply closet with a belt he spraypainted gold. Probably should have made a safe-word. And to Nepp, who didn't do that.
