Wonder Woman costume not patriotic enough, say critics

The NBC remake of ’70s TV show Wonder Woman is getting a lot of buzz, but not all of it is good, at least in terms of the costume design.  The new Wonder Woman outfit has not only been updated for the present day, it’s also missing the trademark stars-and-stripes theme that many say was key to Wonder Woman’s persona.

In fact, other than the color scheme being roughly the same, the new costume bears very little resemblance to the old one, prompting some to criticize it as having been stripped of American patriotism.  DC Comics has defended the change, claiming that all the elements of the original Wonder Woman look are still there, just in a more modern form.
