Wonder Woman: After 70 years of fighting crime in a swimsuit, the Amazon superhero will now do so while wearing trousers.

Wonder Woman has a bold new look, one of the most dramatic changes of her 70-year history.

Criticized for years for fighting crime in effectively a one-piece swimsuit — often considered either sexist or simply impractical — the DC Comics icon has a new costume as of this week's Wonder Woman #600, and it's one considerably less revealing, complete with long pants and a jacket.

I remember Lynda Carter being a bit miffed when she found out that a poster of her in the WW outfit wasn't being bought by little girls who aspired to be like her, it was being bought by middle aged men who aspired to do domething else entirely.

Look at the women in comic books and comic book based films. They all show as much of the woman's (voluptuous) body as possible. I don't think putting pants on her will change that.
