Wonder Woman is (re-)introduced to the rebooted 1980s DC Universe.
After DC Comics rebooted in the 1980s, it published the miniseries Legends to (re-)introduce a lot of its lesser-known (non-Superman, non-Batman) characters. Wonder Woman’s rebooted solo book by George Pérez was just a few months old by the time she appeared in Legends, but here was her first appearance in the wider DC Universe — and apparently one of her first times outside of Themyscira. Guy Gardner (the first to encounter her in Legends) and the public at large don’t even know who she is. She just bursts on the scene and tells everyone to get their act together.
I loved it.
It was treated very much like an introduction to a new character, or at least a new readership for an old character — and it totally worked on me. I had just started reading comics around this time, and I came to DC from the Christopher Reeve Superman movies. I knew who Wonder Woman was, of course — I’d seen Super Friends and read some Justice League back-issues — but this Wonder Woman was powerful, confident, independent, and mysterious. Not to mention John Byrne, one of the biggest superstar artists of the era, was at the top of his game.
At the end of Legends, when the rest of the heroes are patting themselves on the back and doing that whole “Maybe we should form a team” thing, Wonder Woman quietly sneaks away unnoticed.
"Dang," I thought, "Wonder Woman is on a whole other level."

I get a little angry when I hear about someone saying that they hate Wonder Woman or that they think she’s boring. I LOVE Wonder Woman, as a character and as an icon, I probably draw her more than I draw any other superhero. In the comics, animated shows and movies, she’s such an amazing person, intelligent, dignified and elegant, yet warm and approachable. Plus, she’s a brilliant fighter and strategist, who can fight individually and within a group. Not to mention, she’s a diplomat! She can fight a war, but she has the ability to end it before it even begins.
Wonder Woman is awesome. Period.

Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Okay, the heels are weird.

But I am pretty encouraged. This looks like a Wonder Woman who kicks ass.

It is SO important to SO many people that they get this right. I hope they understand the responsibility they have to people, not just women, all over the world.

Basically this costume is pretty good. I love the tiara, I love the bracers (though we don’t have a great view). I love the belt and the logo on the chest. I love the leather harness. The boots suck. OH MY GOD SHE HAS THE LASSO. IS IT SILVER? WHO CARES SHE HAS THE LASSO.

Here’s Your First Look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
The DC Movie Panel is going on in Hall H at SDCC and on-stage are Affleck, Carvill and Gadot. And they just showed this image. Are those heels on the boots? Close to the Chiang look but not exact. What do you think? 

My first reaction could be summed up as, “Ok so far…” and a sensation of waiting for the other shoe to drop.
