Carter gives thumbs up
Lynda Carter, star of the ‘70s television series “The New Adventures of Wonder Woman,” thinks the latest incarnation of the D.C. Comics superheroine’s outfit hits the bullseye, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Miss Carter’s opinion of the new outfit, unveiled Friday, runs contrary to some of the reactions to the skin-tight red-and-blue suit, which shows plenty of actress Adrianne Palicki’s bosom and appears to be made of latex. Fox News claimed in July 2010 that artist Jim Lee’s update of the outfit, which inspired the look for the pilot, lacked patriotism, while the Los Angeles Times ran a poll asking readers whether the new version was a good representation of the Amazon princess character or more akin to a Halloween costume.
