Mr. Lee has drawn his share of sexy superheroines (the X-Men’s Rogue among them), some in skimpy costume, and knows what many fans will ask: “Why am I covering up her legs?” Ultimately, he wanted her to look strong “without screaming, ‘I’m a superhero.’ ”The punchline of the piece is a depressing one--Wonder Woman is not in the top 20 of sales. But then again, I guess I am partly to blame. How about you? And making her more universal with less American Flag-esque and less leggy costume, is that going to make things better?
