That’s quite an investment into the cardio-vascular health of someone who died in 1962. The auction took place at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, where auctioneers originally estimated the chest X-Rays would only fetch about $3,000.
Speaking of chests, the comic book character Wonder Woman will be no longer be sporting her signature red-and-gold bustier (or hot pants!). DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee updated her look to pants and a jacket. “I wanted to toughen her up, and give her a modern sensibility,” said J. Michael Straczynski, who has taken over writing duties for the comic series, adding, “[Besides,] what woman only wears only one outfit for 60-plus years?”
While the new outfit covers way more skin that the old one, Linda Carter, the actress who played Wonder Woman in the 1975 TV series, told ABC News the outfit change will be “very sexy,” even though, “I think it will take time for people to get over not seeing a lot of leg.”
In other auctions, Sex.com, the domain name hailed as the “most valuable” went up for sale again after bringing in 14 million dollars in 2006. Sex.com was originally purchased by Escom, a Los Angeles computer firm now facing bankruptcy—maybe because they paid 14 million dollars for a single domain name?
