Wonder Boy by superleezard Wonder Boy by superleezard
I was watching the movie Wonder Boys when the name Wonder Boy got stuck in my head. Sometimes I fixate on an idea and the only way to stop thinking about it is to draw it out. The whole time I was designing this I kept thinking that if Batman can have a Batgirl and Superman can have a Supergirl then surely Wonder Woman could have a Wonder Boy. This is the result.

I tried to make it masculine while retaining as many elements of the WW family as possible, such as the bracelets, the stars and of course the W. Although I did remove the second W (for Woman) and I figured it was a recognizable enough symbol to survive.

Here he is with jacket and sans jacket.

Nice but I think the Eagle would be better for a guy than the winged w as the Eagle is more unisex since Cassie and Donna both wear it and the Wonder Warrior analouge used it on Mxy's warped earth.

Thanks! I have to admit, Wonder Boy's one of my favorite things I've ever created. I think I need to draw him again soon.

I like this, though I'd like to hear more of the character's story. Amazon's are supposed to be all women, so where'd he come from and what made them accept a male into the fold?

Blond hair perhaps he's either Cassie's brother or Diana's son (if she married Steve) I'd go with him being Diana's kid though.

I dig the jacket look. Totally plausible idea. Good stuff. "Wonder Boy... What is the secret of your power?"

You have a point, and you've done something constructive with it. This is pretty neat.
But, shouldn't he go maskless in the Wonder Woman/Wonder Girl tradition?

And, does he change into his costume by spinning? There is no masculine way to do that.

Thanks! He's got the mask because 1) I love domino masks and b) in the backstory I've dreamt up for him he is only loosely affiliated with WW and crew, not officially sanctioned you know? So unlike the rest he's got a secret ID. But no spinning!

I can't argue with that logic. I've always thought the maskless heroes were kind of idiots if they wanted to have a secret identity. And, dominos kick ass. Look at Zach Overkill in Incognito.

Very cool design, my friend. Personally I would have gone with bracers instead of bracelets but still a great job.

Even if I have the Tenacious D song stuck in my head now.
