Mike and Darrell are joined by Micah of Geek Brunch to discuss Batman Inc, Batman Odyssey, and sexual relationships with Wonder Woman and Cyborg, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bionic Man and discuss some listener feedback. The guys discuss the Justice League International Panel from Baltimore. Mike also learns from Darrell how come there are no fat people on the Enterprise. Keith was teaming up with Aquaman and could not make this episode.
The first still picture of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman drew a mixed reaction, but it appears as though that was not the finished costume. Buzzfeed has a few more pictures that look like action shots and in them the costume is slightly different.
What do you think? Which costume do you prefer, the first one (with the shiny pants and the blue boots) or this one?
Adrianne Palicki (formerly of ‘Friday Night Lights’, one of Mike’s favorite TV shows) has been cast as Wonder Woman on the upcoming TV series presumably with the same name. The first image of her was recently revealed on EW.com.
What do you think of the casting in general and the look in particular?
MAC Cosmetics is coming out with a line of makeup based on the DC Comics heroine Wonder Woman. The products have names like Spitfire lipstick, Athena’s Kiss lipglass, Themyscira mascara, and Spirit of Truth nail lacquer. Some of them have been collected in Utility Belts (?) containing Eye Brushes or Face Brushes.
Most of the women I know are loyal to the makeup they buy and I doubt if they will drop it just because the Wonder Woman logo is on the package, but I am not the target audience for this product. I think it is interesting that while most of the names of the actual products are related in some way to Wonder Woman, some of the words and imagery of the official announcement at temptalia.com screams of Batman (and for some reason, it ends with the word ‘Shazam!’)
The line launches in the US and Canada on February 10 2011 and internationally in March 2011.
Keith and Mike continue to celebrate the women of the DCU with
Birds of Prey 3,4,5
Gotham City Sirens 13,14,15
Wonder Woman 602
Power Girl 13,14,15
and much much more.
