Should Wonder Woman wear pants?

Story goes in the upcoming not-justice-league 'live action' movie, batman vs superman, Wonder Woman is supposed to be one of the (many) super heroes that appear.

Should she be in the traditional *ahem* shorts, or skin-tight pants?

My background on Wonder Woman... I've ALWAYS loved Wonder Woman. Hands down.
Yes there's that sex appeal (admit it she-geeks you have the same for batman or superman... or Mr Fantastic ) but it's not why I loved her.

She was smart and strong, and didn't always have to use brute force to win.
Same reason I like Batman.. yes there are times he just uses his brains.

I appreciate cunning and BRAINS in my super heroes (and heroines)

In the animated Justice League I loved the Wonder Woman focused episodes. I thought the look into Themescara was awesome. The back and forth between her and HawkGirl was awesome. That he is damn neat AS POWERFUL AS SUPERMAN is beyond kewl.

I have never read a comic for the pretty girl art. I have always read comics for the story (the art is the bonus, the the end all be all of a good comic). Granted the single BEST GI JOE comic ever was one done in the early 80's that had ZERO, 0, spoken lines. it was a beautiful story told through art alone.

SO.. why am I posting this here?
Why not, it seems like a reasonable beer and pizza thing guys would talk about.
Not everything we talk about here has to be life and death, right?
and this seems like a nice topic out female viewers would enjoy writing in on as well


SO... with or without pants?

Personally, I don't care. As long as the write her CORRECTLY (and being how man of steel was I have little hope) I don't care what she wears, as long as the spirit, if not the character itself is respected.

1. I don't care one way or the other, though I am a traditionalist of sorts with Wonder Woman.

I like this:


Like you, I want her character to be well-written. I saw the WW TV show pilot...I thought I was going to vomit. I was furious! She was a psychopath. Wonder Woman doesn't killed unarmed people!!!

I really liked the Wonder Woman movie and a few of the other full length feature cartoons with her (including "Flashpoint", which is fucking awesome!!!).

WW is the reason I started reading Greek Myths and became fascinated by mythology in general. I also wouldn't be opposed to a Xena-like costume, which has also been bandied about.

2. yoga pants

 

j/k

Leave her in the hot pants. Fer chrissakes. Leave the characters as their creators imagined them. Next thing you know the Incredible Hulk will have to have a shirt on.

3. what the hell would THAT be made of?

4. Shi is an Amazon Warrior Princess

So I like the idea of her costume reflecting that. However the mockup on this page looks good, too. (scroll down)

5. I agree with Aegis.

I will admit i do prefer the original outfit, but if the character is written true to the original concept of her then it doesn't really matter what she's wearing. Of course, they may have issues from the "die-hard" comicbook purists out there. If they do change her outfit to be more modest, I personally think they should keep the traditional theme.

6. While I prefer her in the short shorts for tradition sake....

....I accept that it looks corny in this DC universe. The photos below making her look more like Sif from Thor are probably the way to go.
