Wonder Woman Melee: Lynda Carter v. Adrianne Palicki, Erica Durance and 9 Others — Vote For Your Favorite

As Wonder Woman steals the spotlight from Batman and Superman at the box office this weekend, TVLine would like to remind everyone that the Amazonian princess has already been kicking butt and taking names confessions on the small screen for decades.

We all remember Lynda Carter‘s iconic twirl from ABC’s live-action series (1975–1979), but how many of you recall the same network’s 1974 Cathy Lee Crosby-led Wonder Woman movie? You know, the one where her costume has sleeves?

Our gallery of TV Wonder Women also includes homages; Bones‘ Brennan (Emily Deschanel), The Big Bang Theory‘s Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and The O.C.‘s Summer (Rachel Bilson) are just a few memorable characters who have played dress-up with Diana Prince’s wardrobe.

Click through our gallery of unforgettable TV Wonder Women below, then vote for your favorite and drop a comment: any notable incarnations we missed?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Adriana Paliki all the way , she is so fine . ugh !

  2. Joey says:

    I’m distinctly remembering a post on tumblr that compared Palicki’s Wonder Woman costume with that of one used in a pornographic film, and Palicki’s was the one that definitely looked more XXX.

    Lynda Carter for the win!!!!!!

    Always and forever, the true Wonder Woman.

  4. Simon Jester says:

    Lynda Carter is going to win this in a walk… as is only right.

  5. Summer says:

    Lynda Carter, always and forever.

  6. Kim R says:

    Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me. :)

  7. Dude says:

    Lynda Carter all the way but Rachel Bilson is a distant second. If I’m not mistaken, Erica Durance’s Harry’s Law Wonder Woman costume appears to be the exact one worn by Adrienne Palicki in the NBC pilot (or at least the second variation without the latex pants).

  8. Phun says:

    Lynda Carter! The real Wonder Woman! :)

  9. Malie says:

    Erica Durance perfect Wonder Woman ever.

  10. Jim says:

    Really? No Gal Gadot? After seein BvS, she should definitely be in the voting.

  11. Steven says:

    No Tea Leoni from The Naked Truth? She wore it pretty well.

  12. lariet50 says:

    Poor Adrianne never really had a chance with Wonder Woman.

  13. dv says:

    Erica Durance is wearing the David E Kelly WW costume in her pic from 2012 as well. That thing does not show up well on screen

  14. DarkDefender says:

    No Contest. Lynda Carter owns that role. Period.

  15. Carrie says:

    You can’t beat Lynda Carter, but Erica Durance would’ve been an awesome Wonder Woman as well.

  16. Linda says:

    Lynda Carter with Emily Deschanel 2nd.

  17. Brian says:

    Lynda Carter forever!

  18. Ricky23 says:

    Only one Diana Prince and Wonder Woman – Lynda Carter always and forever and she still looks really good, whatever her age.

    Really looking forward to seeing the movie!!!

  19. Mr. Tran K says:

    Lynda Carter FTW :-)

  20. Rob Horine says:

    Lynda Carter, the best there is, the best that was, the best that there ever will be.

  21. Malie says:

    I love Erica Durance and if Hollywood didn’t have their heads stuck 👆 there asses she would have been on the Big Screen by now. 3/4 of these Hollywood starlets can’t act to save their own lives. Those bastards would rather give Nina Dobrev and Kim Kardashian a chance to shine when neither one of them can’t act. #SorryNotSorry Hollywood is just as fake as there breasts. Screw the whole make believe land. They are idiots and i will never support any actress in that entertainment industry except for Angelina Jolie. She’s my favorite actress by the way.

    • Brigid says:

      Whaaa I’m a baby….WHAAAAAAAAAA! Erica Durance is a mediocre actress. Gal Gadot is perfect for the big screen.

  22. clintbrew says:

    it ashame that adrianne palicki wonder woman didnt get a series i would love to see it didnt they do a pilot a least we get to she her flex her muscles in marvel most wanted i voted for erica from smallville cus i liked that episode

  23. Blah says:

    How about Sarah Michelle gellar at the MTV teen Choice awards

  24. Diz says:

    Rachel Bilson!

  25. kmw says:

    Lynda Carter will always be first but Emily Deschanel is next. That is one of my favorite Bones episodes ever.

  26. Phoenix5634 says:

    Told ya the other day, iconic. You don’t even need the show to know Lynda Carter was going to win, I didn’t.

    • Malie says:

      Congrats Lynda Carter and thank you TV line for your continuing support of EricaDurance. We are all Queens and should be treated as such. Happy Easter 🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇

  27. Jimmy says:

    Cathy Lee Crosby’s apocryphal piece of crap version of Wonder Woman shouldn’t even be on this list.

    • AnnieM says:

      While I agree with your opinion of that made-for-TV movie (and UGH, it was terrible), she was actually the first TV Wonder Woman, as that movie predated Lynda Carter’s WW series by a year or so. I’ve even seen it referenced as a pilot, so if it was, it underwent some MAJOR retooling before it became a series with Lynda Carter! LOL.

  28. mike says:

    Linda carter for sure..but Kaley really wore it splendidly. I have to pause at that point for a few minutes of appreciation.

  29. Brigid says:

    All of these ladies look rediculous in their costumes. Lynda Carter hands down for the win!!!!

  30. Nero theTVfiddler says:

    Erica Durance.

    I just noticed that her Canadian Series – ‘Saving Hope’, is still filming in Canada and on Canadian TV. Good for her – miss seeing here down here in the States.

    • Malie says:

      You can see her show Saving Hope on IONTV if you want to watch it. It comes on Tuesday nights at 9:00-11:00pm. Enjoy and thank you for the support. Season five will start shooting on April 18, 2016. She’s the best to her devoted fans. I’m a #ProudDurancers 4Life.

  32. Mr. Sunshine says:

    As most of stated, there really is no contest. Lynda Carter hands down. She owned that role!!

  33. Mr. Sunshine says:

    Whe no edit button. That should have been as most have stated….

  34. Malie says:

    I’m going to stand up for Erica Durance no matter what you people say. She has tried so hard to break into the entertainment industry and i am very proud of her period. So if you don’t like it then i suggest you keep your mouth shut.
