Wonder Woman is so iconic due to the TV series and the over fifty years of history. The 'new 52' is a prefect platform to remake the character who needs a refresh more then most. Outside of some brilliant storys by John Byrne and the great writing given to the DC Animated Universe Wonder Womand, she had quite the floundering over the years and never quite getting my attention oiutside of her getting pants. No really, Jim Lee's image change by adding pants was news worthy across the world and the backlash from 'fans' was simply stupifying. I don't understand why pants made her angry, I'm not sure what time I was in but it felt stupid. I felt sad that such a long lived character in the DC portfolio was being used so poorly.
I'm looking at history here and not what the character is now. Now Wonder Woman is somthing new and unique with a new lease in life.
