    Default Wonder Man Appreciation - 2019

    Since no one else seems to have started one yet, here's a new Wondy Appreciation Thread!

    There hasn't been much to talk about lately, as Simon's big moment of 2018 was getting bashed by the new Immortal Hulk, so here's hoping 2019 sees better things for our favorite ionic Avenger!

    Simon lost to the Hulk? I would have thought he could go toe-to-toe with Hulk.

    In the past, he has.

    But we know how these things go; he was really only there to prop up how dangerous/scary/unpredictable/whatever the new Hulk is.

    Oh awesome!

    Simon's the only character I see that I'm interested in (and a little out of place?), but I'll probably still check this out.

    And just because I still have the page open - more 90's trading card goodness!

    For the life of me, I still can't figure out how to make attached images not shrink to microscopic sizes...

    Me too. I have the same problem as well. Hopefully, you'll let me know whenever you figure it out.

    Anyways, just to stay on-topic, I've always been a fan of Simon Williams (a.k.a. Wonder Man) and he's one of my favorite members of the Avengers. I really enjoyed his one-shot special from 1986.

    I also enjoyed his ongoing series from the 90's.

    Too bad there will never be comics like this ever again.

    Happy New Year to one of the most underrated Avenger (in my opinion) .

    My favourite Avenger, and one of my favourite comic characters fullstop. I'd love to see him get another shot at an ongoing, I really believe he's a character with a tonne of untapped potential.

    I haven't been keeping up with Wonder-man in modern comics. But I LOVED him and Beast together back in the day. And the abuse Ares inflicted on him Incredible Hercules... I laughed so much.

    Nice to see Simon's origin story. It has been a long time since I saw those pages!

    I think Marvel did kill Simon in the 1960's because of DC threat. But I was thrilled when Marvel revived him! He was so great when they revived him.

    But by Issue 200, it seemed he was beginning to fade into the background. Not sure where Simon is these days--he really is a Man of Wonders! He should be front and center with heroes!

    He's back in limbo after last years Avengers: No Surrender.

    According to solicits (and the image posted above) he's appearing in one of the many superfluous "War of the Realms" event.

    I'm big fan of wonder man. Shame that marvel has treated him almost like a joke for so long.

    It really is a shame the Simon/Beast bromance has gotten so little love. Part of me was honestly hoping with so much friction Beast had with the X-Men in recent years, he'd be more a full time Avenger just so he and Simon would do more. Beast is just so much funner as an Avenger for some reason.
