Captain Wonder Reborn

Not many people remember Captain Wonder, and why should you, he was only in 3 issues and that was back in the 80's.
I have never forgotten him, in fact I'm a little obsessed.
Wonder Woman has always been my favorite superhero and to see a male version was fantastic, only down side was he was a villain, Dr Phycho used Steve Trevor's mind to change himself into a match for Wonder Woman.
before then we had a Wonder Warrior in Superman 349
Great little story for superman to see how the world would be in reverse
in the watch tower superman see's a female Flash, Batwoman Wonder Warrior and Black Condor, guess the writers think canary's are too feminine.
superman gets into a fight with wonder warrior before finding out the truth of where he is.

since then we have not heard of a male wonder woman for years, then a couple years ago during the year long countdown run, Donna, Kyle and Jason travel the universes looking for Ray Palmer in 6 one shots, in one universe it seems they visit the one superman was in back in the 80's.
this time wonder warrior is Dane Prince, Wonder Man.

not as thought out as captain wonder but least he is not wearing a womans swim suit.
but none as of yet have been as good as the one and only Captain Wonder.
found this one online and i think its beautifully done, i can see this working, if like wonder woman he grew up on an island with only men he would not know shame so the outfit (or lack there of) would work nicely .
this is my try at Captain Wonder,

  1. So I got confused. In your post of issue one part one, it said that it was some kid named dean that got the powers to become captain wonder, but then in another place you said it was some guy named Steve?
    I find this really interesting, so I was just curious. :3
