Wonder Woman has pretty much had the same outfit since 1941 — the red and yellow bustier, the tiara and of course the star-spangled briefs. Now she'll have a motorcycle jacket, gold gauntlets and pants.

MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

Superman, the Hulk and X-Men have all had their fair share of makeovers - new costumer colors, shiny materials. But Wonder Woman has worn pretty much the same outfit since 1941. You know, the red and yellow bustier, the tiara and of course, the star-spangled briefs. Now, D.C. Comics is unveiling an updated image. She'll wear a motorcycle jacket, gold gauntlets and finally, some pants.

It's MORNING EDITION.
