    Default Hippolyta's JLA costume

    JLA Bendis.jpg

    It's...kind of like Stan Lee's WW? Has anyone seen a full frontal image yet?

    I’ve seen no full frontal Hippolyta yet, but the outfit seems a little bland. And that cape/toga is doing nothing for me.
    Still, I need to see more.

    Might be inspired by Mendoza's costume. To me the gold and white just represents a certain divine flare. Maybe that was the thought process. Who knows. I like it so far but seeing the concept sketches would be great.

    Id have preferred if they went for her Rebirth design, also the one used in Endless Winter if I recall.

    I mean, it's...okay? I think it could use more purple.

    I can't help but think Bendis took Wonder Woman out to push Naomi who will be taking her place in the Trinity alongside Superman and Batman.

    I've been having this nagging suspicion too, also with Diana being in the Godsphere to push Yara and Nubia.

    I'm just glad I don't hate it and that she has a spear instead of a sword and shield. Also I wonder about her powers, she apparently doesn't have the lasso or the Sandals of Hermes for flight this time around.

    It didn't seem like he could use Diana with her post-DM status quo, so Hippolyta is there as a fill-in.

    DC seems to have an agenda.
    It’s not one I’m onboard w. but the most I can do is not support these things when they get shoved at me

    The agenda is developing new IPs for future movies and television shows. Comics are just a testing ground now where Disney and Warner Media plant those seeds

    Yeah but I’m thinking maybe that’s why they sent her off to Valhalla in the first place

    Can kind of piece it together between the two images...

    I actually like(d) her Endless Winter outfit...:



    It evoked Wonder Woman while looking like it came first and Diana adopted a look inspired by her mother, which is pretty cool.

    So no bracelets either, what's she going to do for defense? That spear is going to have to cover a lot of ground. It takes more than moderate super strength to face a typical JLA level threat.

    I was thinking the same thing. That spear isn't going to be very effective against the likes of Amazo, Starro, or Despero, unless it has some mystical qualities to it. I think Hippolyta should borrow that almost unnecessary shield Diana often uses and never give it back.
