First Look At The New, Less Patriotic, Wonder Woman

The first picture of Gal Gadot as the new Wonder Woman was released at the San Diego Comic Con today. Armed with a sword and clad in what appears to be brown leather, the new Wonder Woman could easily be mistaken for a new Xena: Warrior Princess. The color scheme is lacking the character's signature red, white, and blue patriotism. 

While I like the overall look of the new costume, the missing "Stars & Bars" makes her feel more like a run-of-the-mill female super hero instead of the "hero of the hour, with her super powers". Hopefully, Gadot's performance in Batman Vs. Superman will make up for any appearance shortcomings. Either way, Lynda Carter, you'll always be the number one Wonder Woman in my book.
