    Default Wonder Man Appreciation

    Simon Williams has had a long career with the Avengers since the beginning of the team's existence.

    After his father passed Simon became CEO of Williams Innovations. Unable to compete with similar rival firms such as
    Starks Industries, Simon made the mistake of embezzling his company's money. This "wrong turn" in his life lead Simon
    to an encounter with Amora The Enchantress and the Masters of Evil. Mislead by this villainous team, Simon agreed to
    Baron Zemo's ionic ray experiment to gain super human strength. However, Simon discovered the Master of Evil's true
    plans involved killing the Avengers and he quickly turned on them. This selfless act started Simon on his heroic path
    alongside the Avengers as the ionic powerhouse known as....

    Wonder Man!

    I thought Wondy was at his best in this period of the Avengers.

    I think of this as The Shooter/Micheline era. I thought Simon got some really interesting character development during that period.

    my favorite moment is probably when he stood up to Krovac in Avengers 177 ( I think).

    This was probably my favorite era for Wonder Man...when he was learning how much of a hero he really was.

    Same as the others; right after he was revived and staying with the Avengers. Avengers 177 was his highest point. After that issue, writers slowly lost their way with Simon.
    He was my favorite for a long time, but they've had him do so many boneheaded things it's almost embarrassing.

    Ah, I was missing this thread. Now I just need to see some pictures of Ol' Simon kicking Wolverine's ass.

    Peace

    I guess WCA was my favorite book because it had Simon as its mainstay. I love the Shooter era, of course, but that WCA mini by Stern and Hall is probably some of my favotite Simon ever. The pool scene is awsome.

    Peace

    Does anyone think Wonder Man deserves another chance at a solo series or mini-series?
