Wonder Man spent a string of Avengers comics as brooding and self-pitying, both about the life he had lost and about the not-exactly-human character of himself now that he wasn't exactly dead any more.

Officially announced (although previously mentioned) during today’s Mondo Marvel panel at Chicago, Wonder Man: My Fair Supervillian is scheduled as a five-issue mini-series beginning in December, written by fan-fav vet Peter David and illustrated by Andrew Currie.
Wonder Man, being a denizen of the Hollywood scene and quite the movie star sometimes, one might think David’s had is his eye on him for while.

As the inventor of the lie detector, a Harvard psychology professor, and strong believer and shaper in the world of comics, William Marston has had quite an impact on American culture.
Through the creation of Wonder Woman, Marston meant to create a female role model for America who was capable of being powerful but still sexy and who engaged with submission and domination, often in the form of bondage, in a care-free manner.
Unlike the ambiguous nature of the Batman and Robin duo, Marston openly admitted to intentionally implanting imagery of bondage into the comics in hopes that the American youth would engage in altering gender power dynamics.

Starting with "Wonder Woman #175," DC has been shipping the series a month late and it causes some to speculate on whether or not Jimenez was able to handle both artistic and writing duties, especially with the aforementioned comic feeling very rushed.

"Wonder Man" may not have the most credible of storylines of Danny Kaye's work, but it has some of the finest moments of pure anarchic ad-libbing and timing you will ever get to see after the Marx brothers.
The story--of diametrically opposite twins, one a shy suburban academic and the other a wacky showman with mafia links--is curious and the plot is strained.

Bruns (the earliest issues of Fox's comics were published under the Bruns name) immediately appealed his decision and on April 29, 1940, Judge Augustus N. Hand of the Federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals handed down his opinion (111 F. 2d 432).
Bruns had claimed that the powers shared by their Wonder Man and Superman could be found in "prototypes or analogues among the heroes of literature and mythology"
Judge Hand, however, quickly dismissed Bruns' argument, but in doing so, he seemed to have written his opinion at arms length with one hand while holding his nose with the other.
