First I want to say that I have been a Wonder Woman fan since the early 70s, and I am talking 1974 Superfriends here. I fell in love with Lynda and I have a huge Wonder Woman collection. I have been with Wonder Woman through thick and thin. I recall, in 84 and 85 when Wonder Woman became a bimonthly book, the clerks and owners at Don's Paperback Book Exchange would ask me why I love Wonder Woman. She was and is my favorite. She was perfect. She was the embodiment of good and always wore the red, white, and blue. That was over twenty years ago. I still love Wonder Woman just the same. I am no longer the same person I was then, well maybe I am. My brother thinks I haven't changed, but I think I have evolved and so has the character. Wonder Woman has gone through so many reiterations that they are two numerous to count.
In September of 2012, DC relaunched their entire line. Most everyone got a new origin and a new version of the costume. Diana received a brand new costume. Originally, she was to wear pants. However, it was later changed to the shorts again.
The costume was not the only thing to change, so was her attitude. In the pre-Flashpoint continuity, she was, well depending of the writer, a Princess that lived on her soapbox. In Perez' run, she was an ingenue who always had a deer in headlights look about her. She was chosen to be an Ambassador. In Messner-Loeb's run, she seemed to have lost her mission if not her origin, because she received a new one. Then Byrne came along. I think this was when she was the happiest. Luke placed her in a Dome that made her inaccessible to humanity and to fans. Jimenez portrayed her as an entitled "don't hate me because I am beautiful and rich" beyotch. Rucka portrayed her as a sanctimonious"let the forest burn" beyotch, and Simone portrayed her as a self doubting yet condescending beyotch. Needless to say, I am not quite the fan of Volumes 2 and 3.
This new version is quite refreshing. We first get a glimpse of Diana, sleeping in her London apartment. She goes to her closet where there seems to be an abundance of costumes, can I say multiple costumes? This Diana is quite decisive.
