Bombshell Wonder Woman

Bombshell Wonder Woman

This is a photo of the DC Wonder Woman figure from the DC Bombshell line. It looks like a fusion of Wonder Woman and Rosie the Riveter. I appreciate that she is pretty moderately dressed (for a super heroine anyway) 1940’s style, and that she is has broken chains. This seems to stand for her fight for freedom as well as making her part of the tradition of old-time strongmen like Charles Atlas and Alexander Zass.
Zass was famous for breaking chains looped around his chest, and older images of Superman often display the same image. Now Wonder Woman is retconned into the club! Go DC!
