Rocketed to Earth on a meteorite after his home planet of Viro unfortunately collided with a star and exploded, the unnamed Wonder Boy ended up in a Chicago orphanage after he was found wandering and unable to satisfactorily account for himself. He escaped and swam to Europe where he defeated a horde of invading Mongols before spending the next couple of years fighting the Nazis alongside Sgt Crane of the US Army.
- Wonder Boy was originally published by Quality Comics. After his feature in National Comics (Volume 1) ran out, some new stories were published in Elliot Publishing's Bomber Comics, and Ajax-Farrell published stories in Terrific Comics #16 and Wonder Boy #17 and 18. DC acquired Quality's characters in 1956, though they have done nothing with Wonder Boy since. He should not be confused with the Wonder Boy who briefly aided the Team Titans.
- Wonder Boy, along with British comic book villain Young Nastyman, inspired the song "Wonderboy" by Tenacious D.
