So what do you think?

What do you think of Wonder Woman's newly-redesigned costume by artist Jim Lee? Tell us how you really feel in the comments!

Personally, I like this one, incorporating more classical elements:

And it's nice to see Fox News being fairly unbalanced in their slant -er- take on the issue. (Memo to FOX: There aren't actually any Reds under your bed.)

Truly, I'm not wild about the new costume design. I keep thinking back to the "mod" redesign and throwing up in my mouth a little. I think that like it or not, WW's costume is pretty iconic and not worth messing with. I really DO like the "movie costume" you have pictured in the photoshopped? pic of Cobie Smulders much, much more. Wonder Woman should like an Amazon and a Greek warrior princess. Jim Lee's design looks more suitable for a Pilates class. Just my opinion.

Tom, I hear you! When I heard they were doing a redesign all I could think of was that white pantsuit thing too! As for this redesign: Meh. I loved the battle armor Alex Ross put her in in Kingdom Come. Anybody see the animated WW movie? It was really quite good. I'd say one of DC's best so far.

A note: is Cobie Smulders a porn star, cuz that sure sounds like a porn name?

Looks like a rejected Wonder Girl outfit.

It looks to me like Jim Lee got to her waist and completely ran out of ideas.

Stymieresh -- Nah, Cobie Smulders is an actress on "How I Met Your Mother," the so-called comedy on CBS. For some reason some people online are hot for her to play Wonder Woman in a movie. I have no idea why. That's just her face; it sure ain't her body in that picture.

Also -- Having now read WW #600, I can say that I HATE the reboot. Turning WW into basically a female version of Superman -- last survivor, blah, blah -- and removing a lot of the mythological and feminist elements is just not making it for me. I know sales have always been a problem for WW, but this isn't the way to go, in my opinion.
