    I thought the pacifist stuff would come to a head in the No Surrender book. They had the perfect opportunity when Wonder Man had the showdown with Challenger. He tells Challenger that he'll have to go through him and then lets Challenger hit him with a potentially lethal blow. Challenger was there to destroy the earth along with all of his friends and family and Wonder Man still doesn't snap? It makes no sense.

    I really liked the costume Simon had, and the place he was in at the end of his series (even if I mostly hated that series and the Savage Wonder Man twist they went with). It was a shame nothing came out of it, with his idiotic death soon after in Force Works #1,

    As I said, I really didn't like this series when they went with the Savage Wonder Mans storyline. I never did like much Gerard Jones. But the art was really good, for most of the series. I did like the first seven or so issues with a lighter and more humorous approach. The change of style stank heavily on editorial interfearence.


    Peace

    I missed that one, thanks for posting! Cronin's been on a roll with all the recent Wondy articles!

    Agreed. Initially, the series was droll but entertaining whenever the stories concentrated on Simon's interactions with his supporting cast and his life in Hollywood. Plus: I also agree that the artwork was a pleasantly, nice bonus.

    There were more pluses then minuses from the Gerard Jones run but I get what you're saying. I think he was trying to add depth to the WM character but might have gone to far with a couple of things. To this day I don't know why he didn't have better established villains for the series like I don't know, Baron Zemo, The Enchantress and The Executioner trying to get him to join the band again! It practically writes itself!

    I couldn't be happier with what Cronin is doing. If it wasn't for CBR Wonder Man would get no attention. Maybe Cronin endgame is to make Marvel realize that they are wasting a great character with a rich history and for them to get him more active again.
    Wouldn't it be great if they had WM show up in Immortal Hulk for a second go around? This time with him punching back.

    I'd like to see Wonder Man work with humanitarian issues globally. helping build roads, bridges, irrigation systems, etc.
    He can also assist with Doctors without Borders, rescuing people injured. Normal bullets and bombs can't harm him. Maybe even a sequence where he deliberately travels through a conflict zone minefield to activate all the old bombs before they harm people.

    It's been a million years since I've read it, but wasn't Simon running some sort of non-profit in the Avengers Two: Wonder Man and Beast mini series?

    Yes, the Second Chances Foundation.

    Journey into Mystery #5 is out and I was curious how WM fans felt about his appearances in the series. In my opinion, it's good to see him being used but he's not doing much. He's had more dialog in this series then he's had in all appearances in the last six years, so I'll give them that. It's just that the pacifist stuff has severely limited what a writer can do with the character. I also hated seeing WM look skinny but somehow they managed to draw Ares big and muscular. Even John Byrne never drew him skinny and he used to slim down everybody.
    Hopefully some other writers get inspired to use him and Marvel finally decides to do away with the dead end pacifist super hero crap.
