Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Cast as the Lead in Disney+’s Wonder Man
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II‘s superhero reign just won’t let up.
Created by Stan Lee and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby, Wonder Man (a.k.a. Simon Williams) first appeared in 1964’s The Avengers #9.
Working under villain Baron Zemo, Wonder Man gains ion-based superpowers and initially works to destroy The Avengers. The son of industrialist Sanford Williams, he assumes control of the family munitions business and runs head-on into confrontation with Tony Stark and Stark Industries.
It’s not all bad news, though, as Wonder Man is later re-born as a superhero and joins his former rivals in the fight against evil.
