    .......what? That's too drastic a change, it's going to be hard to get used to I think. Well for me anyway.

    It will probably last about as long as electric Superman.

    Huh...well...

    I'm not getting too riled up, since it's probably only temporary. I kind of like the segmented "armor" on her bodice and pants. The gold inside of her heels is a nice touch too.

    Looks stupid, won't last. She looks like a fashion model not an amazon warrior. I was looking forward to the new direction too, oh well, I'll give it six issues.

    I actually...kinda like it. Doubt it's permanent though. Her classic look is just so iconic.

    Wasn't there a brief period of time in the 90's where Wonder Woman had a costume with a jacket?

    About time she got a new costume, though, since the old one was fairly impractical for someone who's supposed to be doing a lot of fighting. Granted, that's a problem with a lot of superheroine outfits, but Wonder Woman's was exceptionally bad. This one could use some improvement (lose the jacket, larger chest symbol, gold and red boots), but it's a good start.

    I can see what they're trying to do with this, but it won't last. This whole "respect for women" nonsense is just a fad, and will pass soon enough. Wonder Woman will be back to her proper man-pleasing outfit in no time.

    Oh well for now...it looks okay but can't shake off how similar it is to a Teenage Wonder Girl or so. Whatever though, doubt it'll last that long.

    I don't like it, but it won't last so I'm not going to stress about it. If they want to change it, something along the lines of what Erica Durance is wearing above would work really well.

    I actually really like it. It looks like something they might do for movie-verse Wonder Woman. Of course the classic look is iconic, but this isn't half-bad.

    Yeah, not a fan of the new look but as many others have said, it'll be a temporary thing so why make a big deal of it.

    Honestly though, as much as I like Jim Lee, if anyone was going to redesign the look of WW it should have been Adam Hughes. Then again why bother for a temporary costume change.

    The new WW costume just don't do it for me. Call me a sexist all you want, but if the costume isn't sexy then it won't work. She may be the ultimate symbol of feminism, but she still needs to look good or there's no interest.

    So it'll last as long as that story arc.

    I also prefer the stuff Tekkaman Blade posted. I've linked to it before.

    This new look isn't striking or iconic-seeming. It's rather generic, really.

    I like it better than the standard classic Wonder Woman costume.
