Lusty geeks worldwide (and despairing feminists) are, we assume, abuzz with the news that Wonder Woman may be returning to the small screen in 2013 with the moderately-easy-on-the-eye South African model/actress Tanit Phoenix in the title role.

Yes, yes. She’s probably very talented, But she’s no Lynda Carter.

The super-heroine made her comic debut just a few months later.

The rest, as they say, is Lynda Carter.
