Created in October 1964, Wonder Man was the beginning of an epic tale about a young man named Simon Williams and the incredible events that took place in his young life. Simon and his brother, Eric, struggled under the iron rule of their father. As they grew into their late teens, Eric chose a life crime while Simon stayed behind, taking over the family business after their father dies. During his time in business, he made the wrong decisions and ended being in debt to a villain that kept him out of jail. His brother Eric has found an endeavor for Simon to invest in. The money Simon used was from funds he obtained through illegal embezzlement. Once the deal with his brother was found to be illegal, the ball kept rolling until Simon was bailed out by the villain Baron Heinrich Zemo.
