Wonder Woman!

Am I the only one who thinks the new Wonder Woman costume is super lame? You know I love me some Jim Lee, but this design reeks of the 90's. That jacket is butt ugh and who wears a choker anymore? She's also getting a new back story cause those Gods are crazy!
From Comic Alliance:
"The Gods, for reasons of their own but which may have something to with their survival and perhaps the survival of Earth itself, have changed the timeline. In the new timeline, years ago the Gods removed their protection from Paradise Island, and left it vulnerable to attack. 
It's now nearly twenty years later. Diana has been raised in an urban setting, but with a foot in both worlds. She has little or no memory of the other timeline. She knows only what she's been told by those who raised her On the run, hunted, she must try to survive, help the other refugee Amazons escape the army that is still after them, discover who destroyed Paradise Island and why...and if the timeline can be corrected or not. She also does not yet have access to her full powers, but will be gaining them as she goes."
Of course, for a character as old as Wonder Woman to stay relevant, you gotta spice some stuff up. I like the idea of a harder, street smart Wonder Woman, but I hate hate hate when retcons like this.
And I will miss those flag undies.
