Why hasn't DC made a Wonderboy for Wonder Woman yet?

#1 Posted by Wonderboy52 (28 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm writing a story about a superhero who obviously is Wonderboy, the first male progeny of Wonder Woman. I'd like to know what others think about the concept in general. Is it a good idea, bad idea or however you feel about it. I think that DC should make more progeny's for female heroes. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Zatara and he wasn't really that popular... so what do you think?

Well amazon heritage and male simply does not work in my opinion. By the way Zatara came before Zatanna I beleive.

I was talking about her younger cousin, not her father.

DC doesn't really need another powerhouse.

Yeah and Wonder Woman isn't that popular. Extending her "family" more wouldn't necessarily a good thing.

If Batman and Superman have female supporting characters...then why can't WW have a male supporting character?

DC hasn't made one, but Marvel has and his name is...Wonder man! :)

As Amazonian are an all female nation? how would that work? If Wonder Woman is all about the girl power wouldn't adding in a male take something away from that?

Depends on how the character was done I suppose, but I doubt we'll ever see the day. Introducing a male sidekick/supporting hero to wonder woman would have to many fans irked I'm sure.

@lsumd2011: Yeah, fans nearly have a conniption when an artist messes with her costume.O_o

It would need to be well done and intresting along with in charecter for all involved. I think wonder womans male sidekick should bes like her brother or something Kid Zeus

They did. His name was Achilles. Not the original Achilles, though.

All very valid points but I'm going to keep hope alive in my heart and hope someday they do it.

I think it would be a good idea. There was an all male race of 'Amazons' called the Gregaraeans. They could use them.

Robin is already called the "boy wonder." Hey wait, that's is the perfect solution for the Red Robin name problem (at least, I think it's a problem), call him Wonder Boy! Why the hell not?

Isn't there already this guy? Olympian aka Achilles. Though he's more of a male counter-part.

While it'd be an interesting role reversal, WW isn't popular enough to justify it.

Would it be worthwhile to have Wonder Boy when DC already has a famous Boy Wonder?  I do think the story of Diana having a child is a potentially good one, but it would have to be in the right hands.
