The revived Simon joined the Avengers as Wonder Man, and was a member for years, becoming best friends with The Beast (from The ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, at the time an Avenger) and later had a romantic relationship with Wanda the Scarlet Witch (who ironically had once been married to The Vision.) Simon was one of the founding members of the West Coast Avengers, and began a side career in Hollywood as an actor and stuntman. After the dismantling of the West Coast branch, he joined Iron Man's new team, Force Works, but was disintegrated on the team's first mission. Many months later, he would remanifest in a purely energy state, thanks to the Scarlet Witch subconsciously using her powers to call on him in times of need; she would later find a way to fully restore Simon to a physical body.

-->-- '''Wonder Man''' to TheVision, ''Wonder Man #8''

Wonder Man is a MarvelComics superhero created by Creator/StanLee, Don Heck, and Creator/JackKirby. Making his debut in ''Avengers #9'' (October, 1964), Simon Williams is one of the Avengers' strongest, most outspoken members. He won the SuperpowerLottery with his "ionic energy", which gives him speed, strength, immortality, flight, and plenty of other powers besides. (They tend to change with time.)

He won the SuperpowerLottery with his "ionic energy", which gives him speed, strength, immortality, flight, and plenty of other powers besides. (They tend to change with time.)



Arranging a staged battle between himself and the Masters of Evil, Wonder Man is successful in winning the Avengers over. After explaining his reliance on Zemo's serum, the Avengers attempt to cure him but are unsuccessful. Left with no choice but to remain loyal to Zemo, Wonder Man leads the Avengers into an ambush by the Masters of Evil. During the battle, Simon has a change of heart and helps the Avengers defeat the Masters instead, knowing full well that he was sacrificing his lifeline in the process. Proud of his choice, Simon succumbs to the treatment's deadly side effect and falls into a coma. Unable to find any life signs, the Avengers come to the conclusion that Simon passed away. Placing his body in suspended animation for the trip back to the United States, Iron Man creates a copy of Simon's brain patterns in the hope that one day they'll be able to revive him. The brain patterns were later used by the super-villain Ultron to create a personality matrix for TheVision, a synthezoid who would turn against his master and join the Avengers. Given Simon's history of having done exactly the same thing, this wasn't one of Ultron's smartest plans.

* SuperStrength: Often considered the third strongest Avenger after [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] and [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]], Wonder Man is one of the strongest Earth-based heroes in the MarvelUniverse. Captain America once described Simon's strength as [[ComicBook/TheSentry Sentry-level]], while Simon himself compared his punches to blows from Mjolnir, Thor's enchanted hammer.

* 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

** 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.
