Amazons get the Harley Quinn makeover!

The Amazons' New Clothes:

This abrupt change of direction is a shock and these outfits look like generic barbarian women from a game of Dungeons and Dragons. They completely lack the unique flavor of the Greco-Roman-inspired armor ensembles that Lindy Hemming put so much thought and historical research into creating for Wonder Woman. The Wonder Woman designs received acclaim from fans and costume fanatics alike. They were clearly inspired by the Amazon's origins in the Mediterranean and were feminine but very functional. Why mess with perfection?

Oh, right. The all-male team of directors and executive directors wanted women to fight in bikinis.

    This is just another incidence of lowest audience expectations, for my money best expressed in Jeff Minter's 1991 rant (which came with his Llamatron game):

    [...]
    All video games are designed for a theoretical entity known as Darren.
    Darren is a spotty 14-year-old male who doesn't get on that well with
    people, so he spends all his time in his bedroom playing games on his
    computer. Darren is easily impressed by graphics and music, and he
    doesn't really want to learn anything really tricky [...continues at some length]

    The whole thing still holds up quite well IMHO.

    To be somewhat fair, Snyder is at least consistent. He did that same thing with dudes in 300.
