NOT SO WONDERFUL WONDER WOMAN ! Welcome to the Swinging Sixties and Woman's Lib

It was all change for Princess Diana in 1968. For a start she lost her Powers and she gave up wearing her Wonder Woman costume all together, Wonder Woman was no more or was she ?

Without her Amazon powers and her lasso of truth , Princess Diana was now plain old Diana Prince, but that did not stop her from being a hero. The main reasons for this change of direction of Wonder Woman can be attributed to many things of that time. The World had started to fall out of love with Super Heroes and had begun falling in love with more normal Heroes. Cathy Gale and Emma Peel of Avengers fame had shown the world that Women could be the equal of Men, The Man from Uncle, and James Bond showed that Spies could be Cool.  So having a strong Willed Woman, taking on Evil and wrong doers only armed with her wits and her mastery of unarmed combat was want the public wanted. No more Bullets and Tiaras for Diana.

In some respects Wonder Woman the Amazon  now took a back seat to Diana Prince, who really was never much of a character, more of a disguise for Princess Diana. Not all little Girls could grow up to be a WONDER WOMAN, but they did have a chance of Becoming a DIANA PRINCE.

Diana opened a Clothing Boutique and started dressing in the style of that time. Jumpsuits, Mini Skirts etc. She began training her new powerless body in all of the martial arts she was able, to become the best she could be.  She was now less Super Hero, more Super Spy-Detective.

Divorced from her former life, Diana Prince spent the next few years fighting the good fight at a more local level. She would from time to time still aid her friends in the Justice League, as many of the League were non super powered after all, Like Batman, Green Arrow and Black Canary. But as time moved on Diana became more of a sole agent of justice.

During these times her costume was no more than day to day modern clothes. So each adventure she would wear something different.

The Clothes and colours would  change but on the whole she did like to stick to White. But here are a last of some of her Mod Looks.
The All White Collection

This change in direction was not a total hit with everyone, but Diana stayed unpowered up until and end of 1972 when the Wonder was put Back into Wonder Woman. Out went the Jumpsuits, in came the Tiara, Breast Plate and Starry Pants..... Also a return of Magic Lasso's and Invisible Planes too

Next time more Wonderful WW costume changes.

Until then ENJOY

Wonder Woman gets a 1960's make over.

As time moved into the 1960's Princess Diana's Wonder Woman Costume went through many changes. (as did she.)

First her Eagle Breast Plate became more less Eagle and more Breast Plate, Her Long shorts became short shorts, her Hair went from curly to straight and her tiara once worn on top of her hair, now went through it.

The only real constant during this period were her boots. Although the heal lengths did change all the time.

However, As Princess Diana moved to the final part of the decade she would adopt a brand new look. (But more of that next time.)

During the 1960's the idea of Earth 1 and Earth 2 became a new concept. Wonder Woman along with her allies Superman & Batman had all been around since the Start of WW 2, and had fought beside that golden Ages heroes of that time like the Justice Society of America. Earth 2 would help sort out the continuity problems that an none ageing super hero had. Earth 2 heroes could now age, whilst Earth 1 could show them as being connected to the modern era that they now lived in.

So like Batman & Superman, Wonder Woman's adventures in the Golden Era were now attributed to the Wonder Woman of Earth 2. His meant like Batman and Superman, Diana got to meet her "Sister" and doppelganger from an earlier time. This made sense to now style both Wonder Woman is different versions of the famous costume.

Later during the 1970's the Older WW would start to be shown with Grey Hair, and would now be married to her version of Steve Trevor.

So here is how Wonder Woman looked through the 1960's into the 1970's. The Blanked out picture is how she was depicted circa 1968 when it was all change for Princess Diana..... But more of that next time.

Small changes during the Swinging Sixties, but all change after 1968 !
