New Wonder Woman Costume Revealed

Get ready for another edition of the Great Wonder Woman Costume Debate to begin.

The last time Wonder Woman got a new costume (pants and a jacket), there was quite a commotion. People are often resistant to change. It turns out in WONDER WOMAN #41, on sale in June after Convergence, she'll be getting a new look. HitFix has revealed the solicit for the issue.

WONDER WOMAN #41

Written by MEREDITH FINCH

Art and cover by DAVID FINCH and

JONATHAN GLAPION

THE JOKER Variant cover by BRIAN BOLLAND

On sale JUNE 17 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US RATED T

Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for details.

A daring new direction begins with the arrival of a brand-new villain! But while he may be new to us, he’s not new to the world he seeks to tame. And speaking of villains, Donna Troy’s quest to destroy Wonder Woman ratchets up another gear (if that’s even possible!), while the games of the Gods bring dark portents to the ultimate Amazon!

Our immediate reaction is it has a lot of red. It really has a patriotic feel to it. Hopefully those wrist spikes are removable. Change is fine. There's no reason Wonder Woman shouldn't have more than one outfit. There's no reason she has to wear the same exact outfit every single time she goes out. We particularly dig Jason Fabok's recent weak in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Hopefully we haven't seen the last of that.

What do you think of the new outfit?

@saren: Let's throw hands. But seriously that is one of the best anime series ever. FMA:Brotherhood is love and life.

I'd say drop the wrist blades, replace with a shield and a magical all-purpose weapon that can become and kind of melee weapon. (Axe, sword, mace, etc.)

I love it DC take my money now. I wish they kept the silver instead of changing it back to gold but i still love it.

Looks good but it would look even better if they got rid of the Baraka forearm claws

Wonder Woman needs to give Jean Paul Valley his costume back. Seriously, I do not understand this seeming huge camp of comic creators and fans vvho don't vvant Dianna to show off any skin.

I like the look just not a fan of the wrist blades... Although I do love ❤ Jason Fabok's version of Wonder Woman's uniform kinda fits her a little more than the initial uniform that she was wearing when the new 52 started

I like the new outfit, only problem I have is all the red haha. That being said do prefer the older design.

I think it sucks and that the biggest reason why a lot of people here think it's the greatest thing ever, is because it covers her neck to toe.

Fabock's redesign from the recent JL absolutely DESTROYS this design on every level. This redesign looks way too busy, too 90s, and just screams Captain America. It's just doesn't fit her. Hopefully it's either temporary or stays in her comic.

Everybody loves Fabok's design, it was unanimously well-received so why not go with it? They had a great Wonder Woman costume but they ditched it in favor of this design that already split the internet ? I think it's ugly, tacky beyond belief

At least a lot of the WW fans over on CBR have the sense to realize it's overly designed and tacky.

I prefer the recent Justice League look to this but still not bad.After all ever hero needs a redesign after a few years every now and then.

I had been reading and enjoying the series since the Finches took over, but if this is the direction the artistic design is taking then I'm definitely dropping the book immediately. There are so many better ways this could have gone instead (Greco-Roman armor, classic super-heroine tights, ultra-casual a la the new Superman costume), but this simply doesn't work on any level. Here's what DC should have gone with:

It's actually pretty damn good, in my opinion. But for an artist like Flinch, it's disapointing to see the lack of details on the suit. Still, I prefer this one more:

Hope this isn't going to be her standard uniform, though. I do want the uniform from the Amazo Virus to be her standard one. Sadly, I know it won't happen.

I really like this!! Looks more warrior like but still has the classic look and feel to it

@foamborn: Agree whole heartedly.. But I see where this is going she might have the armor on because she just might be embracing being the new god of war not just going with the title only..

Wish she'd kept the silver/platinum over using gold. Wish she'd lose the predator blades, assuming they aren't removable. Wish those boots weren't s'dam high. That said? I'm loving this look. It feels fresh, while at the same time, like a mix of pre and new 52. I can dig it

Feels like her older design with a few elements of her newer design tossed in. Also reminds me a bit of her appearance in the New 52 animated movies. Glad the hair's still big but what' up with all the stars?

Why does she need shoulder armor?

What's with the wrist spikes? Wonder Wolverine Woman?

Other than that, quite like it.

Now this looks like something a warrior would wear for battle, the past costumes never made any sense to me. This new costume is awesome and it should have been the one used for the movie

Mostly great.

Like many have said, I don't care for the pauldrons. And I always liked that Diana's gauntlets were a part of her history, the shackles of the Amazon's former oppressors. Those big spikes just look silly.

But, all in all, I'd call it a net positive. :)

Just forget it. I just found out that this is post Convergence uniform. Damn you, DC, and your stupid retcons. Seriously, DC is starting to PIS me off. Superman's post Convergence uniform was terrible.

I can't stand these people who think it's "not warrior-like" for Wonder Woman to show any skin.

Because as we all know, ancient warriors NEVER showed skin in battle.

Oh dear God, not the INTERNET!

Oh the wasted keystrokes! The comments! The memes! The trolls!

How could they ever not stop to think what the internet had to say!?

Those fools! Those foolish fools!

As you may have guessed, I'm being sarcastic. When isn't the internet split?

I really dig the new outfit. All the classic elements in a modern and functional style. Unfortunately, just like every other time Wonder Woman has been given pants, this won't last 6 months before DC folds and brings back the one-piece.

@captainmarvel4ever: Why do you say that? She looks pretty Warrior to me.

That looks nothing like a warrior from her setting

She's rarely in her setting though, and you gotta admit, this says Warrior. At least in some regard, no?

Avatar image for captainmarvel4ever

@scouterv: Not really no

And the whole appeal of the character (or any character) is that they come from different backgrounds and bring a part of that with them, this look does not have that at all, it takes away her ancient warrior appeal.

The gauntlets seem a little unnecessary to me, but otherwise I like it.

Perhaps you should be looking somewhere else but at her boobs.

I love it. Just take off the wrist blades.

This is honestly one of the best mixes of Amazon Warrior and Super Hero I've seen.

I hope this sticks.
