    If it included some repetitive narration, it'd be Miller's id summed up.

    I actually really like the costumes that some people hate. Maybe it's the context of when they came out. The Bob Oksner Wonder Woman is my favourite. The Mike Deodato Black Canary Wonder Woman looks cool.

    And as for the Cathy Lee Crosby outfit--I saw that when the T.V. movie was first aired and I was just happy to see a Wonder Woman. Remember that the costume-less mod Diana Prince had ended just before this and they were still working out what to do with Wonder Woman in the comics. The T.V. show had to figure out a Wonder Woman for the 1970s, with little to guide them--so they compromised between mod Diana Prince and traditional Wonder Woman. Seems to me she could have walked down the street in the U.S. at the time and never gotten a second look--Americans were dressing in these patriotic outfits in advance of the Bicentennial, on shows like UP WITH PEOPLE, and you had Evel Knievel.

    Carol Strickland has singled out the "screaming chicken" armour for derision and I have to concur. That outfit is a bit too much. Diana is wearing a similar outfit in the trailer for WONDER WOMAN 1984, but that one is not the eyesore that we saw in the comics.

    I think the armor looks fine in Kingdom Come but it's when it shows up in more main continuity books under different artists is when it stars to look really cumbersome. Well, aside from the wings which look cumbersome in both versions.

    The Cathy Lee Crosby costume, it's NOT Wonder Woman's outfit, it looks like something an overly patriotic phys ed teacher would wear for a night of go-go dancing.

    Right? I don't even consider this a Wonder Woman costume.

    I know you guys like it, but I DESPISE the Chiang armor. It's just ugly, especially the "skirt" flaps that belong in an automatic car wash and the anemic starfish on her belt. I always hate a red star on the belt that echoes the tiara and the silver fish scales around her waist are out of place. It's too many things.

    Hahahah..........I agree again. It's overly busy and is an eye-sore. Plus the red parts of the armor make her look like a lobster or a crab.

    Divorced from Frank Miller's art style and accompanying characterization of Diana, his DKIII suit is almost palatable...until you get to the star spangled bike shorts. Swap in a battle skirt of some sort and its oversexed Amazon but much better...

    I almost always hate when the belt is diamond shaped and connects with her chest-plate. What's worse is the 3 feathered eagle, it's just lazy. The giant apple sized stars are hideous and we're back to generic go-go boots, only this time they're red.
    Those aren't go go boots

    I actually like most versions of this version of the costume (based off Toth's simplificationnof her costume for SuperFriends) its tye cleaner, more modern (-for the time) and grsphic version of her look

    I haaaaaaaaate ( but i am too lazy to find an image of it) her look in most ofnthe DC animated features. The blue under layer and "stockings", the anemic emblem, the things on her knees (whatvthe hell are those? Did she borrow them from Donna's shoulders?). Plus they fiddle with the colors of her costume. While Kal's colors are bright red and a good blue, they akmost...purple up her colors? They're inkier, slightly purpley or pinkish. Cuz, girls. 9_9

    Though not technically an alt-costume, the Mike Deodato Jr low cut, butt floss version is easily one of the worst in the history of the character.
