Look out old Safari Jacket Wonder Man is back!
I've talked before about my love for a handful of second banana Marvel superheroes (Ghost Rider back in the day, Luke Cage*), and included Safari Jacket Wonder Man in the roster. As noted, I really never liked any of his other looks. He was a glowing energy being for a while. Yawn. And he's also had a simply dreadful parade of 'superhero' costumes, all of which featured a retarded looking giant 'W' on his chest. As if to make him look especially bad, in the late '80s and '90s these horrible costumes were mated by giving Wonder Man a mullet. Yuck.
[*As I noted at the time, one link among these three is that they didn't have elaborate superhero costumes. Ghost Rider was a motorcycle stunt guy, and wore blue leathers. Luke Cage wore a yellow silk shirt and black slacks along with boots. Wonder Man again wore a red safari jacket over tight black pants and the requisite boots as well. In other words, compared to Spider-Man or Captain America, these guy comparatively wore street clothes.]
But now the classic, golden Wonder Man of Yore is back. Check this out. [If you click on each separate page, they appear in a new window, and can be blown up via the icon in the right right hand corner to a huge size, allowing you to really enjoy the extremely good artwork.]
You can't miss the cameo by another beloved character either, who once was part of the Marvel Universe.
