The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer left many jaws on the floor with Diana’s new golden armour.
We’ll get to see her in her new threads on Thursday, December 24 when Wonder Woman 1984 releases. However, this isn’t the first time the character has had a dramatic redesign. Check out some of our favourite costumes from Wonder Woman’s wardrobe.
Jim Lee’s Wonder Woman
Artist Jim Lee ditched the blue and red spandex that Wonder Woman wore since the 1940s and brought the character into the 21st century. This costume kept the red armour top and added a pair of black pants along with a Black Canary-inspired leather jacket. Lee’s design trades the blue in Wonder Woman’s costume for black.
Golden Eagle Armour
In a 1996 Elseworld comic storyline, Wonder Woman dons a gold armour set forged by the god Hephaestus, along with a sword capable of cutting Superman. This is the armour that Wonder Woman 1984 clearly draws inspiration from.
Crime Syndicate Wonder Woman
There’s something fascinating about the Crime Syndicate’s evil version of Wonder Woman. The paragon of justice and virtue, turned symbol of greed and evil in an alternate reality has a black costume to match.
The DC Rebirth comic series gave Wonder Woman armour fit for an Amazon warrior. The bright red and gold colour is highlighted and there are no stars and stripes. This costume represents Wonder Woman’s move from a symbol of American virtue to a more international image.
