When she was a powerless, Diana Rigg-type secret agent in the late 1960s-early 1970s (the less said about this version, and this era, the better 🙂 ), she wore pants allthetime.
Her wardrobe will change back. After all, there are 70 years worth of merchandizing invested in the current costume.
Here’s my proof: remember when Superman looked like this?
