In a more upbeat issue following the death and destruction over recent issues, the final panel of this issue polarized fans, as Jimenez depicts Diana transforming into her Wonder Woman costume by performing the famous “Wonder Spin” – just like Lynda Carter used to do in the 1970’s TV show! Jimenez has always acknowledged his affection for the TV incarnation of Wonder Woman and this would not be his last homage to the show and Lynda herself. While many fans loved the reference, others felt it undermined the character by dragging her back to the “camp” days of the 70’s. Me? I loved it!!!
Ironically, little did fans realise that a few years later DC would decide to make more fundamental shifts back to the pre-crisis/TV show era by re-introducing the “Diana Prince” secret identity and have the Amazon Princess work as an agent for the Government!
