Cause I think the new DC 52 series' Wonder Woman could have been something more different than playing it safe. Though, I can't say if I'm digging the same with this one either. Heh.
I thought that with a redesign, you have the chance to tackle things that the original design was lacking. A second chance to make a visual and yet memorable character.
For instance, I always thought that even though she has these bracelets for projectile attacks, she should have at least have some other forms of armor, around her arms since Diana is based off Greek mythology. Also, feeling that covering her arms up a bit more would suit the situations a bit better, making her more warrior/gladiator looking for whatever comes her way. I also didn't want to go overboard with her either, since I still want her to have that very strong, amazonian, feminine look to her. Meh. whateves. I think I'm just talking out my ass now :P
