Fox News: New 'Wonder Woman' Outfit Lacks Patriotism

 Warner Bros.

UPDATED

The Wonder Woman costume for NBC’s remake of the 1970’s series has been revealed, and is stirring up some controversy -- from Fox News.
 
On Friday, FoxNews.com republished a July 2010 piece which took issue with the loss of Wonder Woman’s stars and stripes. 
 
“The new and allegedly improved Wonder Woman (a.k.a Diana Prince) has been given a head-to-toe makeover by artist Jim Lee, replacing her signature American flag decorated briefs with skintight…pants and purging the super hero of all her trappings of Americana,” the story claimed.
 
A spokesperson for the heroine’s creator, DC Comics, defended the costume change, telling the website. “The latest evolution of Wonder Woman’s iconic costume is a central part of the latest comic book storyline. All of the classic symbols – patriotic (stars, eagle) and heroic (lasso, bracelets) – are ever-present.”

Wonder Woman's costume in the David E. Kelley pilot was largely inspired by the DC Comics update.
