Wonder Woman Shock

I have already posted today but came across something on a retro topic that shocked me and felt the need to write a post. I was reading an article in a magazine on DC Comic's Wonder Woman. She is the world's most famous female super-hero and she is getting an all new makeover to mark the landmark 600th issue of her comic book. This is fair enough. She has had makeovers before, only before they just brought the same outfit a bit more up to date. This time they are completely giving her a whole new look she doesn't even look like the same character any more! She is going to be a lot more covered up now in leggings instead of hotpants and a jacket over her strapless top and they think that is modern!

Here she is currently:

And her new outfit is due to look like this:

I mean, seriously?? 
Her original look in 1941 was more sexy and modern than this!

What akso annoys me is that this is down to DC Comics hiring a new writer to apparently bring Wonder Woman into the 21st Century and he was quoted saying
"...She's been locked into pretty much the exact same outfit since her debut in 1941. What woman only wears only one outfit for 60-plus years?..." A fair point, but that said does that mean they're going to re-design Superman? I think not. 
Plus does he not know vintage is big right now??
