Superhero chooses leggings
Wonder Woman may never be the same again after ditching her famous star-spangled outfit for a more modern costume.

The superhero will be clad in a brand new outfit that includes a pair of leggings - a far cry from her previous attire - in the 600th edition of the comic which has been running for nearly 70 years.

Her new image is the creation of Michael Straczynski from DC Comics.

"She's been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941," he explained to the New York Times.

"If you're going to make a statement about bringing Wonder Woman into the 21st century, you need to be bold and you need to make it visual. I wanted to toughen her up, and give her a modern sensibility."

Wonder Woman's appeal went truly global back in the 70s thanks to the television series, starring Lynda Carter as the eponymous heroine.
