Funder Woman


Like most female nerds, there are some characters I just love. Princess Leia. Sailor Moon. Wonder Woman. Just for fun, I took a moment to draw out how I’d design Wonder Woman’s costume – pretty classic, with a touch of Kingdom Come. I like the idea of her wearing armor – after all, invulnerable or not, she is a proud warrior. I also think throw-backs to her Greek roots make for fun design. I didn’t take the time to detail this draft very much, and if I were seriously drawing it, I’d have added a few more things, particularly on the skirt.

So that my little side-project wasn’t a total waste, as far as productivity for our game goes, and since her look works so well for our game, I made a few modifications to turn her into a resident of Genos. Basically just removing anything that would be trademarked to Wonder Woman.


Ta-daaaaaa!!! Not only is this shade of red used extensively in several of our human characters, but WW’s not known for shoulder-guards. I feel comfortable with this uhh… completely generic dark-haired anime woman warrior – especially considering there will probably be a lot of cameos by fictional characters.

You may notice, by the way, that I prefer my Princess Di a little buff. With that in mind, no; I’m not thrilled about the casting of Gal Gadot. I would have preferred an MMA fighter like Gina Carano, whom I feel is a very pretty woman who can also kick butt. I’m pretty tired of seeing waif-fu.

Oh, Starbuck, that you would’ve been followed more after blazing the trail for realistically tough women.

What do you think? Twigs kicking ass… really?
