Oh, Wonder Of Wonders !

January 11, 2012

Well, I guess in the end it was inevitable.

They’d been doing ok sofar but now it seems the ongoing austerity measures have hit yet another minority group.

& although I’m not in the profession myself, it’s unfortunate as seeing them not being immune to cutting back on spending is somewhat disconcerting.

I am typing of course about superheroines or to be more precise, about their figure hugging costumes.

But don’t take my word for it.


Wonder Woman Costume Recycled

From an upcoming episode of the TV series “Harry’s Law”, that’s actress Erica Durance dressed up as Wonder Woman.

Does the outfit seem familiar somehow ?

It should as it’s the very same costume from that earlier failed Wonder Woman pilot starring Adrianne Palicki…

Wonder Woman Costume Recycled

Yeaaah, I don’t think the whole world was ever ready for this costume & just when we thought we’d seen the end of it, it comes back to haunt us.

Well, at least they stayed away from the shiny pants.

…this time ?

Hey TV, you had better watch it !

Because Hell hath no fury like a (wonder) woman (costume) scorned.

& it will smite your broadcasts down with Amazonian force !


Now The World Is Ready For Youuu !

Suffering Sappho !

What the Hell happened ?

Did DC, NBC or David E Kelley actually listen to the outcry of the fanboys in comicbook community ???

Wonder Woman 2011

In any case, it looks alot better now.

I guess we’ve seen the last of those evil shiny fetish pants… or have we ?

Only time will tell so stay tuned complaining Wondy fans !

Wonder Woman 2011

Good luck fighting crime & I guess being taken seriously…

Wonder No More

July 1, 2010

Hello & welcome to the 2nd half of 2010 !

According to stats, visitations to this lil’ blog o’ mine have increased dramatically these last few days.

I suppose I could make some sort of calculation to find out exactly how much of an increase but this ain’t no math blog.

Anyway, going over the list of search engine terms, there’s the daily usual (hot women) but also several new type of searches.

Suddenly, people have been looking for things like “wonder woman deodato”, “wonder woman issue 600” & “diana prince” .

Hmmm, I wonder if something’s up with ol’ Wondy ?

Now just to be clear here, I am not reading Wonder Woman comics, I’ve never seen the TV series with Lynda Carter & the fact that Joss Whedon couldn’t deliver the live-action movie version doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

Ok, she gets points for the whole amazon warrior thingy but she’s just no Jennifer Walters.

However, anything that increases traffic to my blog must be good, right ?

First things first, who is Wonder Woman ?

Once upon a time, a queen from an isolated island full of immortal women wished for a child. The Greek Gods granted her that wish by bringing a piece of clay to life. Named Diana, she grew up as a princess.

Eventually, she left the island & now armed with the Lasso Of Truth & Bracelets Of Victory (& sometimes an invisible plane) she seeks to bring peace to the world of man as Wonder Woman.

…ok, that spells pretty weird & kinda boring in just about any language but seeing as her comic has been around since the 40s of the last century, how bad could it possibly be ?

Well, apparently bad enough to lose so many of its readers that DC are now desperate enough to accept Babylon 5 creator JMS’ drastic proposal to take Wondy in a new direction & a new less revealing outfit complete with *gasp* pants & a jacket designed by Jim Lee.

Wondy's new jacket look

Guess everything old is new again because some 15 years ago DC decided to change Wondy’s outfit by adding 2 things…

Wondy's old jacket look

Short tight pants & a jacket that never closed but sometimes came off.

Oh yeah, things were better back in the 90s.

Wonderful 600th…

December 9, 2009

In 2010 the comic of Wonder Woman AKA Diana Prince will finally be hitting #600…

600 issues of Wonder

Congrats to thee, brave Amazon warrior !

Why Thank You Mr Deodato !

April 25, 2007

You know, one could argue why a selfrespecting heroine like Wonder Woman would choose to dress herself in a tight skimpy costume that completely sexualizes her look but I won’t.

Diana Prince

So instead, let’s hear it for the wonderous empowerment that is slutty dressing.

Woo-Hoo !!! :mrgreen:

“The Best Goddamned Warrior EVER”

April 13, 2007

Wonder Woman is finally back !

After the failed “One Year Later” relaunch, the title lost its original writer & thereby plot before the conclusion, the replacement writer isn’t doing too well either.

But now DC has wised up and as of #13, Diana will be wondrous once more.

Or in the words of new writer Gail Simone:

The book is about the best goddamned warrior planet Earth has ever known, and she happens to carry a mystical arsenal around just for the hell of it. If a writer can’t make that interesting and fun, they really shouldn’t be writing superheroes.

Wonder Woman

Wonderbra indeed.
