Blonde Ambition the Amazon Way
by Michael Troy
[Print-ready Version]

Okay, okay, so Wonder Woman has a new outfit and we are not amused.

I think that everyone has pretty much pooh-poohed WW's dated and fugly new digs. I think that DC must be thrilled as at least everyone's favorite amazon is getting a little limelight. And to quote one of my favorite fashion designers Michael Kors, "The worst review is no review!" So at least people are talking. Tim Gunn and Phil Jimenez have even weighed in on the subject. I normally trust Tim, but I think he was too generous. And I'm not sure if I trust the fashion opinion of someone who has been giving everyone "The Rachel" for the past 10 years. (Sorry Phil.)

That said, I agree that sometimes a girl needs a makeover. I just think that WW is so iconic and has the best star-spangled one-piece any woman could ask for. If it ain't broke, don't make it painful to look at. The whole outfit is wrong in a mug and looks kind of pedestrian for the most powerful woman in the DCU. Of course, with all "changes" like this, we as fans just have to be pissed and wait for the return of star panties!

(They always go back to the status quo once the dust settles; Superman's mullet is in some hairdresser's trash can after all.)

Rather than being part of the problem, I like to present a positive alternative. While nothing puts more spring in your step than a new outfit, sometimes a gal just needs a new hair-did. Granted, Walt Simonson and Jerry Ordway went down this route by giving Diana a much lamented gym teacher coif, but I offer something new and much more riveting... peroxide!

Now I know anyone familiar with my work knows I am somewhat biased to the fair haired populace, but until you've been there I can tell you nothing is more empowering than being a blonde! Are you listening, DC? Any time you want me to tell this tale, my pencil is sharpened and ready.


Michael Troy is the creator of The Blonde Squad comic book (a bunch of shallow blondes that become super-heroes just to be famous) available now at the Prism Comics online store) and the star of his own web show Lethally Blonde. Don't hate him because he's beautiful. there are other, better reasons.
