-->-- '''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.)

Wonder Man is a MarvelComics Creator/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.)



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.

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: As of late.

to:

%%* 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.
