Pop Culture: Lynda Carter

Lynda Carter Suits up as Wonder Woman
There has been talk of a new Wonder Woman television series forever. So why haven’t any of those projects come to fruition? Two words: Lynda Carter. Nearly out of money and close to returning home to Arizona, Carter landed the starring role in The New Adventures of Wonder Woman as Wonder Woman and her alter ego Diana Prince. Her sincere performance quickly endeared her to fans and critics alike. More than 30 years after first taking on the role, Carter is still closely identified with Wonder Woman. Now that’s a Latina superhero we can be proud of!
