Fighting crime in pants!
Or rather, trousers, for those of you in the UK.
I love comic book stuff, even though I take issue with the geeks that draw it because every woman is drawn bursting out of her action suit. Even though I don't read the actual comics, I love the movies and I still collect action figures.
So I was interested to read that Wonder Woman is now fighting crime in slacks...but my friend Mike D, who is an even bigger geek in this area than I am, had the following thoughts about it:
Interesting. This probably won’t last very long. Her costume is very iconic, and fans are rather protective of icons. There were a couple of years ago where she lost her powers and then cut her hair off (sniff) for a disguise. She regained her powers and her long hair only a few issues later.
And by the way, I happen to know that Linda Carter was another one of Mr. RK's crushes back in the day.
When I moved to New York in 1994, one of the first and coolest things I saw was a Wonder Woman poster she had signed, hanging on the door of one of the many shoe shops on Eighth Street.
