Simon Williams was known as Wonder Man or Dead Man if you know his history. Wonder Man has died more times than he cares to recall but yet he does recall, and recall each death. These deaths haunted him and made him weary and doubt himself for years.
Then came the Enchantress it seemed anytime she had a plot to destroy the Avengers, Wonder Man was usually her instrument for destruction. Simon would often wonder why he was so easily swayed by women. His love for beautiful women usually led him to trouble, Carol Danvers- Ms. Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Enchantress and the list goes on. Simon never really was able to find true love that left him content. He even tried to be with a regular civilian but after his Wonder Man life affected her and her daughter along with everyone in his apartment building he realized that type of relationship would never work.
This takes us to why Simon Williams has went off to find himself. He has to learn what his purpose in this crazy world really is. This takes us to his current status…..
The setting is space; Simon is flying through space alone contemplating his existence. Simon is immortal, Simon is invulnerable, Simon’s strength is endless yet Simon does not realize his full potential. Simon is arguably one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe yet he does not realize his vast potential and has met defeat at the hands of some whom he should have destroyed. Wonder Man has been sold short for so long and he was sold short by himself.
Simon is flying along when he is contacted…..”Mr. Williams” a voice resonates in his mind….Simon is confused can’t believe what he is hearing.
Simon: “Oh great now I am hearing voices.” “I am for sure going crazy now.”
Voice: “Simon Williams, Wonder Man, you are greatly needed.”
Simon: “Who is this why are you in my head!”
Voice: “Although there are great troubles on your home world earth and your friends are dealing with these issues you have a greater cause.”
Simon: “What is this cause and again WHO ARE YOU!”
Voice: “I am The Watcher and I usually do not get involved with events but to not be involved with this would mean total destruction and nothing to “watch” over.”
