Wonder Women Through the Years

We all start off with SO MUCH energy and determination when we're young and new to the superhero life, don't we?


And then we reach our peak of womanly POWER, lassos firmly in hand, strong, calm, confident and in charge!


And sure, by middle age, maybe there's a few extra pounds, our thighs are chubby and we're starting to look and sound more like Roseanne every day, but we STILL kick major ass!


But the day inevitably comes when gravity and cellulite have won the battle, when we switch our stiletto boots for sneakers and DAMN, don't granny panties feel comfy?


So are we now washed-up Wonder Women?

SHIT NO and get the FUCK out of our way cuz we are NOT gonna miss our coupla margaritas and our favourite programs on TV, you villainous bastard YOU.

[I posted the original version of this in 2011. I hope you enjoy it again, ever so slightly revised!]

FUCK YEAH I'mma still kicking ass at 63!

Mark said...

Wonder Woman has gone through a number of looks over the years, but one thing is for sure; she's never stopped kicking ass.

Marie Smith said...

Lol. Grannies surprise themselves sometimes!

The Captain said...

What's next? The invisible mobility scooter? 😂😂

Miss Val's Creations said...

Getting old is fun. Silly things are no longer important and we can simply be ourselves no matter what someone else thinks!

Adam said...

Too bad nobody stays immortality youthful like her

mistress maddie said...

You had me cracking up over the Roseanne one! It does rather look like her doesn't it? I always thought Lady Bunny would make for a great looking blond Wonder Woman.

On a side note, In Rehoboth Beach a friend of mine does drag there, Magnolia Applebottom. She just did drag as Wonder Woman. Ill have to see if I can find the picture.

Leeanna Henderson said...

OH YEAH!!! Getting out of those heels and into granny panties and a robe, screw the bra.

e said...

See! This is why I insist on pants! No one needs to know ANYTHING about my undergarments. I may be wearing granny panties, I may be wearing boxer briefs... (I can promise you I won't be wearing a thong!)

DEZMOND said...

but tell us, Debs, do you have a WW costume hiding in your closet?

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

That's me in the second snap! I am sure of it! :)

Great posts all week.

Rosemary said...

Oh what a hoot that last wonder women is - is she for real?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Rosemary -- I found this photo on the internet several years ago. I suspect this Wonder Woman may be a drag queen -- that "Hedwig" hair certainly suggests it. Either that or perhaps she's a cosplayer with a wicked sense of humour!

Jono said...

I want to be friends with the person in the last picture.

Snap said...

Yee-Haw!

dbs said...

Thumbs up. But where's Lynda Carter? I was totally infatuated with her as a kid; my daughter and I just saw the movie and loved it, and then we read "We Should all be Feminists" by C.N. Adichie. The world needs more women in charge.

I'm not wearing underwear.

Love,

klahanie said...

Hey Debra,

Oh my, that last picture is a photo of my ex wife.

I'm wearing Janie's underwear.

Love,
Gary

Shammickite said...

I absolutely adore that last pic.... but I didn't notice you snapping away with the camera that day!

Anne Johnson said...

I'm not wearing underwear either! And if I had Wonder Woman tights, I would never wear underwear at all. Who wants panty lines in their sleek super hero look?

GOODSTUFF said...

All kinds of Wonder Woman Wonderment with Gal Gadot, Lynda Carter and Cathy Lee Crosby!

Fuckin' A!

Mitchell is Moving said...

Being Wonder Woman has nothing to do with the body. It's all about the spirit... and maybe the torpedo bra.

Treey Stynes said...

Wonder Woman! Yay

I'm going to reuse my comment from 2011:
Isn't it great that we live in a world where drag queen Wonder Woman can walk down the street without fear of persecution because we live in a utopia of understanding and the leader of the free world isn't the personification of bigotry? I'm so glad that the president, while still a drone using brown-people-bombing warmonger isn't a cartoonish hate clown, and that will never change? All hail Wonder Woman and the beautiful promise of America she represents as an immigrant.

Sigh, I guess my comment didn't hold up.

AntiquityTravelers said...

that is pure awesomeness.... I think this last woman takes my train into the city everyday

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Very. lol. Grannies can have fun and still kick ass. Love Wonder Woman.

Missy George said...

OMG..I hope I never get to the Roseann stage..Hysterical post!! Enjoy your weekend

John M said...

Granny Wonder Woman is great!

Kirk said...

From the 1970s Wonder Woman TV theme song:

"Now the world is ready for you
and the wonders you can do
Make a hawk a dove
stop a war with love
Make a liar tell the truth"

We need her in the White House.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Hell yeah! Even in my comfortable shoes, I'm still a powerhouse.

Francie M said...

hahahahahah. Being a major fan of big hair I have to admit she looks grand and really capable of kicking ass. Hey and the underwear! Sister's got an attitude i like!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

My laughter went from loud to louder, and I could relate more, as I progressed through this post. Shit yeah! Who says you can't conquer the world wearing Depends?
Hope you're enjoying the weekend, Debra.

Insomniac's Attic said...

Nina said...

I guess my granny was also a wonderwoman before,...certainly.

baili said...

bill lisleman said...

Great post - I didn't see it back in 2011. How interesting how Wonder Women keeps returning. Runs in cycles?

Riot Kitty said...

OMG!
I was happy that she didn't show cleavage in the movie, however unrealistic her battle skirt may have been.

Magic Love Crow said...

LOL! Great stuff! No granny panties for me yet, but I do love my sneakers! LOL!
