It's a common historical mistake to assume that the Amazons described by Herodotus were themselves Greek. Since her earliest days, DC Comics has always portrayed Wonder Woman as a Greek Amazon princess in on an island affected by a Greek pantheon of gods. In reality, archaeologists and historians believe that the Amazons from Herodotus writings, if they truly existed, were from lands outside of the influence of Greece. Over the years, some have believed that Herodotus may have been referring to peoples from Turkey, Lithuania or even Lebanon. In some of their research certain of these historians have believed that the Amazon included female archers. That is what I've chosen to explore in this image: a Wonder Woman not with a sword, but a bow. I also tried to make her costume look more plausible and more European. No red, white and blue here; more natural deep reds and blacks on a simple unitard with lacing up the sides. I like the idea of the character being an archer because it give an additional utilitarian reason for the bracelets, which I have portrayed as reinforced leather braces that could also serve as archery wrist guards. The single glove is also to guard the fingers against friction from the bow string.
Because I hate DC for the reboot. No, I don't hate it, just...I don't know, don't have many hopes on it. Okey, ranting ahead.
So this is a WW redesign I've created because I don't like much the new design. Why? Simple as if they're changing it, then they should change every little thing that was a 'mistake' in the first place. Diana is an amazon and the color of the amazons IS GOLDEN because they worship the sun, so the suit SHOULD have gold!
Second, if we are goin' into new times, don't you think you should stop showing so much of the 'wonder boobs'? The idea is that heroines are powerful as men, and that woman have the same rights, then WHY! OH Why do you make them look like tools? I want Batman running in short pants and a top with cleavage? I don't think so.
And what is going on with that bloody choker!? I seriously doubt any woman would focus on the jewelry for her battle costume! She is an amazon for god's sake, she IS a warrior. Amazons choped off their breast because they were bothersome in battle! We are not even asking that much!
So that is my opinion, in anyways it doesn't bother me THAT much in comparison on how I am mad about Harley's new costume. DC NEWS FLASH! WOMEN CAN BE HOT USING CLOTHES!
And if you are going to keep it up with the almost naked woman, then I want to have all the friggin' Batfamily bared chested all the time! What's fair is fair right?
