Wonder Woman Gets A New Look In Issue #8

Now that the heroine has been given new gear, will she also have increased power?

This week we'll see the release of WONDER WOMAN #8, and in it we'll get to check out Wonder Woman in a whole new way - or at least in a whole new costume. How does one prepare to enter into the depths of Hell? She dons a brand new costume, of course.

In the upcoming issue of her self-titled, ongoing series the heroine will be getting a very different look and a whole array of new toys to do battle with. The exclusive preview of the upcoming issue was seen on Redeye earlier today. Wonder Woman will be depicted in full upper body plated armor, a skirt, sword and child and she will also be toting a pair of golden guns. If we had to guess, we would say that based on the picture above, Diana got a little bit of help from Hephaestus for her costume redesign. The question remains, will this new look mean new and increased powers? We will have to wait until this Wednesday to find out. Check out the full five-page preview of WONDER WOMAN #8 here. What do you think of the costume? Do you prefer this look to her usual attire?

Don't know what to make of that

Edited by Gambit1024

Yes! Finally she looks like the warrior she's supposed to be! 
 
I totally approve. 
 
I mean, if I had to change anything, the skirt would be fuller, but other than that, I think it's perfect.

There are things I like but others I don't.

it kinda reminds me of darksiders when Ulthane makes u a sword & helps war get Strife's gun but i like how its kinda similar to Hercules taking Ares weapons from his vault but it looks much better then her old costume .

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

I don't like the emblem 

Posted by feargalr

I like it, more practical look for a warrior.

Posted by wmwadeii

Guns?

I like it

I really hope she isn't going into Hell with a child (amusing typo!).

I like the look, desperate times and all that.

To be frank, so what? Great book but I imagine a 'new costume' as you're calling it wasn't supposed to be a big deal here. Likely because she won't be wearing it all the time or ever again. The story itself is the centre piece here not the fashion. Of course she's wearing armour to go in battle for crying out loud.

I hate this aspect of comics media these days. Anytime Spider-Man or Iron Man has a new suit there's an announcement just to get people to fight on forums on whether they like it, which in turn gets everyone aware of the issue which will then sell more. Even this post is acting in that sense. This could have simply been Wonder Woman Preview.

On another note, I'd like to see Diana going between the previous design with pants and loads of others. It just makes sense that she wouldn't wear the same clothing all of the time, then people wouldn't be so falsely upset/delighted. She's a character not a costume.

This new design of "Underworld" is freaking awesome.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Awesome! I liked her previous outfit, but this is PERFECT amazon warrior!!

Posted by Dernman

It's growing on me the more I see it. Don't think it's the right costume for JLA though. Keep it in Wonder Woman.

Posted by saoakden

Looks cool. I like it.

Would have loved to simply post the Wonder Woman preview, except that we didn't get the exclusive for it.

Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7

Awesome. Wouldn't mind her changing to it.

Posted by Blood1991

I think it looks pretty Bad Ass. I don't like how she is using Eros's guns....

Posted by Funrush

Not bad. A good change from the usual.

cool

Needs a few touch ups like a fuller skirt and the W symbol but it's a start.

Edited by Inverno

Me gusta! Hephaestus looks weird here!

If there is an 'Underworld', most definitely would be London or inside England. Great choice.

Posted by Supreme Marvel

I like the armour on her right arm.

Posted by cmaprice

Xena meets Captain America. Works.

Posted by Joe Venom

now she is starting to get my attention, but does she really need the golden gunz tho?

I like this and I usually don't like change. Is it only sticking around for a few issues?

well said.

By the way, what is a sword and child?

Posted by VioletPhoenix

isnt she dressed like her earth 2 counterpart?

Posted by Sobe Cin

battle skirt needs to be fuller, other than that it looks great. Although I would like the arm brace was more bronze in color than red.

London is my favorite city on Earth, and I'm from England, so I'm going to have to massively disagree with you here.

Posted by cobra88king8

I like it. It works for what she is going to do. Whether or not she keeps it doesn't matter. It makes sense for her to wear that right now. I'm kind of sick of everyone fighting on whether or not an outfit is "good" or not. I personally wouldn't mind if certain characters changed their outfit for the story they're in. It makes sense for WW to dress like a warrior if she's going to be doing a lot of fighting and against large numbers of enemies

didn't knew that ares was in london

I still don't get why this wonder woman happens to feel like its living a couple of years after Justice League #7 same as Aquaman, same as Green Lantern.

Edited by Fantasgasmic

I like the design, but I don't care for the drawing... if that makes sense.

I wish her metal skirt plates weren't spaced so far apart, and that the Eagle on the breastplate was more fleshed out. She looks a lot Hippolyta's old design with her hair up. A simple ponytail might make her look less old/like her mother. But on the whole, I'm a fan.

Because Justice League #7 was terrible and doesn't feel like it takes place in the same time or universe as ANY of the other series including the ones Geoff Johns himself is also writing?

I mean, when a bunch of series don't fit with one; isn't it more reasonable to assume its the ONE series that isn't in synch with the OTHERS?

You'd think it'd be bigger news that she's packing now.

Speaking of which, GOLD guns? Who is she, Nicolas Cage in Face/Off?

Posted by Skunkstein

I approve, im digging most of the new 52 custome updates... really bringing some realism (lol, yeah i know how it sounds) into their looks. I was never a big fan of spandex.

Posted by Renee

It's alright. The top half is better than the bottom.

Posted by sesquipedalophobe

She needs pants.

Posted by matestinha

I like it, could be some kind of occasional second costume. Just having a hard time to fit the golden guns in it, but ok

Posted by The Stegman

Meh..close, but I'd prefer something like this to be her normal look.
