Debunking the Xena Comparison

At this weekends 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Brothers released the first official photo of actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman from the upcoming  Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice film. Immediately fan boys took to the interwebs to compare Diana's outfit to that of Xena, played by Lucy Lawless  in 1995-2001. I suppose many of the so-called "fan boys" thought they were being cleaver in referencing a t.v. series that's been off the air for over 10 years. If any of them were true fans they would have known that Princess Diana of Themyscira has been rocking the warrior princess look in comics before Xena ever hit the small screen.

Throughout the years Wonder Woman has had many different costumes but she has been sporting the Warrior look since the 1980's, That's right folks; the 80's which was long before the Xena television series was created. If you need proof, feel free to Google Warrior Wonder Woman by George Perez which was done in the 80's and you will see for yourself. Princess Diana has been kicking butt in it ever since. If anything, Xena was inspired by Wonder Woman not the other way around.  Perhaps you should stop calling yourselves fan boys when it seems like your only goal is to rip apart uncompleted films. You have demonstrated an obvious lack of knowledge on the history of the character in comics. 

For those of you who say the movie costume is a rip off of Xena; your argument is invalid.

  1. And if they have an answer, in the immortal words of the purple dragon Imagin from Kamen Rider Den-O, Kotae wa kiitenai!!!!

  2. My favorite was from the Alex Ross Kingdom Come book.

  3. The image at the bottom, sort of resembles the Gal Gadot armor. Though brighter. However, I think the picture we got from Snyder was heavily filtered.

  4. But the mistake is who took the picture, this photo is an amateur work, semi professional job.
    Besides the obvious errors, look how the tiara on her face seems to have doubled in size and was reduced.
    The face seems to have been placed in another body, Gadot doesn't have these legs and arms.
    Talking about the suit, the boot is ridiculous, high heels?
    In none of the WW arts that you posted she has high heels, the concept artist didn't do their homework.
    First mistake was the choice of actress, the second mistake was the choice of the photographer and the third mistake was the wrong vision of the artist who made the concept art.

  5. Great site! I am loving it!! Will be back later to read some more. I am taking your feeds also
