%%* EnergyBeing
%%* FingerlessGloves
%%* FlyingBrick
%%* HeelFaceTurn
EnergyBeing: Initially downplayed, his flesh and blood tissues were fortified with an ionic treatment, meaning he was an energy being possessing an organic body. After he seemingly died, his body entered a coma that turned himself more completely into energy, a form he occasionally takes.
* FingerlessGloves: Some of his costumes have these.
* FlyingBrick: Much like Superman, he just started off as an invulnerable superhuman capable of InASingleBound, replicating flight with various JetPack implements. Eventually he developed enough control over his energy form to perform true flight and eye beams.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He started off as a mole for the Masters of Evil before BecomingTheMask.As of late.late he switches between an ally and antagonist to the Avengers.



%%* MegatonPunch
* TheMole: Wonder Man was created to destroy the Avengers from within.

%%* NighInvulnerable

to:

%%* NighInvulnerable* PurpleIsPowerful: Even though the most visible side effect of his powers is glowing red eyes his occasional ionic form is purple.



** There's also part of his acting career, being truncated by his constantly glowing eyes and drastic musculature, as sunglass wearing leotard clad "Mr. Muscles". Beast found it hilarious.



%%* SuperReflexes
%%* SuperSpeed



* WhoWantsToLiveForever

to:

* WhoWantsToLiveForeverWhoWantsToLiveForever: He's had some angst over being immortal.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: His heel face revolving is eventually figured to be a result of the energy that sustains his body leaking causing instability.

Added DiffLines:

* DecompositeCharacter: In the Comicbook/UltimateMarvel Universe, "Wonder Man" is a bit of an odd duck. Ben Grimm 'evolves' from his traditional rock-monster Thing look back into his burly human form with similar abilities ("ionic" energy projections, FlyingBrick, etc) to the 616-Wonder Man. However, a later story arc in Comicbook/TheUltimates introduced it's own version of Wonder Man (who is actually named Simon Williams at that). His power set is significantly downgraded from his 616-incarnation, merely being gifted with SuperStrength and SuperToughness acquired from his days as a Professional Bodybuilder and Olympian who fell from grace when it came to light he was using PED's laced with Mutant Growth Hormones.

No relationship to WonderWoman, if you're [[IncrediblyLamePun wondering]]. Though they have faced each other in [[IntercontinuityCrossover some crossovers]].

* ShoutOut: ''Wonder Man: My Fair Super Hero #3'' directly references Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes using the Statue of Liberty. In the same issue, Beast uses [[{{Frasier}} Frasier Crane's]] "I'm listening" catchphrase, which is a reference to Kelsey Grammar, who played Beast in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''.
