Wonder Woman weirdness - a famous Wonder Girl and a third costume for Adrianne Palicki

Adrianne Palicki in the third Wonder Woman costume

First off, above is the costume Adrianne Palicki wore at the end of the pilot for a proposed new series of Wonder Woman (thankfully not picked up). Surprisingly, worse than the other ones, I think. Poor Wonder Woman, she never gets the breaks.

Anyway, the wife and I were watching original series Wonder Woman the other night and to our surprise, up pops Drusilla, Wonder Woman's sister aka Wonder Girl (not in the comics, where it's Donna Troy, but hey ho). Okay, not surprised by Wonder Girl – surprised by who's playing her.


Recognise her yet?

Debra Winger as Wonder Girl

No? Well that would be Debra Winger, star of An Officer and a Gentleman and recently In Treatment, in pretty much her first role (they were even lining up a Wonder Girl TV series for her). How odd.

Wonder what Adrianne Palicki's going to be doing in 35 years' time.
