seneschal Posted August 31, 2018 Report Share Posted August 31, 2018 (edited) I know fans generally loved Gal Godot and Lynda Carter in the role and sneered at the 1974 and 2011 television pilots that offerred alternative takes on Wonder Woman. But a part of me would like to have seen the blonde secret agent and grumpy toy tycoon versions fully developed. Perhaps in a Doctor Who style crossover event among the various iterations, teaming up to save the day. After all, the comics themselves have given us a de-powered Emma Peel style Diana, an angry stressed out heroine (after a series of crises) willing to injure bad guys, and a blonde substitute Wonder Woman with a militant attitude. Also, i cant help recalling that the TV show M.A.N.T.I.S. turned out to be fun despite having a rough and (to me) rather offensive pilot. Between the concept film and the actual series they worked out the problems. Television Wonder Woman got a second chance in the 1970s but not in the 2010s. Cinema aside, i stumbled upon an omnibus volume of Wonder Woman stories similar to the Superman tome i had discovered earlier. In her 1941 debut, the Amazon princess took over the identity of U.S.Army nurse Diana Prince in order to stay near an injured Steve Trevor. The real Diana Prince, meanwhile, followed her soldier fiance overseas so they could get married. In the pulps, The Shadow had come to a similar arrangement with the real Lamont Cranston Army Intelligence never discovered the switch.
