The best versions are those that whole heartedly embraces the greek mythology thing. Be it Perez, the animated movie or the recent Azarello run.

Imho, the greek armor concept is the only thing that makes sense from a "world building" perspective, especially for a movie. Now, one can argue that WW in MOS 2 is an already established figure who has spent a lot of time in "man's world" an thus adapted her costume. However, if she's fresh of the island so to speak I say go with a greek armor influenced design.
I can't remember agreeing with a post so completely.
