Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman is often mentioned in the same breath as Christopher Reeve’s Superman and Michael Keaton’s Batman- and deservedly so. While Carter has had far less competition for the title of ‘Best On-Screen Wonder Woman Ever’ (does Palicki even count?), it will ultimately be hard for any actress to compare to her iconic look.

Carter’s Wonder Woman was unapologetically comic book-based. No attempt was made to modify her costume or powers for conversion to the small screen, which is something rarely seen today. I’ve been saying it for a while now- there’s a huge opportunity for some risk-taking filmmaker to buck the recent trend of skewing toward realism and go for a full-on, true-to-the-source motion picture. All the universes don’t have to be Nolanverses.

November 7 marks the 38th anniversary of the premier of Wonder Woman, so to celebrate the “camp and circumstance” of the 70s series, here are 21 images of Lynda Carter in all of her fantastic true-to-the-source-material glory.

    Thanks for this. Honestly, I never realized how hot she was. Looks like I know what I’ll be fantasizing about later….

    Thank you for not making us click to a new page for every single image. That seems to be the new trend for any multiple image or list-type post these days, and it’s obnoxious as all get out when trying to view articles on a smart phone. So thank you!

      Thanks for noticing! I will admit that if you look long enough you will find some posts here that employ the one entry per page strategy, but I only did that per the advice of a WordPress expert who said doing that is a must for site speed. It does take forever to load all of the images when I put them all on one page, like this post, but I agree with you- I’m ok with waiting a few seconds instead of clicking a ton of times.
