Overview

  An alien who came from "the depths of outer space" to Earth in the shape of a young Earth boy, to fight the good fight against crime. He had "the strength of a thousand men" and a girlfriend named Sally Benson. Wonder Boy was last seen in 1942 and his subsequent whereabouts are unknown.

History

  Early in 1940, a meteor sped across the skies, alert astronomers tracking its landing area to Chicago, Illinois. Its appearance in the skies worried the shamen of Mongolia and they used it as an omen to attack their neighbors.

  As the meteor crashed, a young man crawled from the shell. Mistaken for an orphaned youth, he was sent to an orphanage. No one believed his story of his being the lone survivor of the planet Viro.

  Hearing from news broadcasts that Mongolia was being readied for war, the young boy took it upon himself to stop the upcoming conflict. Jumping over the walls of the orphanage, making his way to the coast and swam to Asia. Meeting up with western officials in Hong Kong, he made his way to Mongolia and ended the conflict.

  Returning to the US, the newly dubbed “Wonder Boy” roamed the nation, aiding the downtrodden, usually aiding the poor and homeless against ruthless landlords and criminals.

  Soon after the US entered the Second World War, Wonder Boy made his last known public appearance. Sightings in the mid-1950s remain unconfirmed at this time.

Powers and Weapons

  Wonder Boy appeared as a young Caucasian teen who arrived on Earth from the destroyed planet Viro (it crashed into its sun), already speaking English.

  Wonder Boy possessed super-strength and invulnerability similar to that exhibited by both Kryptonians and Daxamites but no flight or vision abilities.
