Brad Spencer is accidentally exposed to a sizzling voltage of a secret current. This gives him super powers, and he uses his new abilities to become Wonderman and fight crime. He is helped by his girlfriend, Carol Paige. Brad has the ability to become invulnerable (as hard as steel) and has super strength. Working from his Wonderlab, Wonderman created the world's most powerful telescope and had soon confiscated an enemy's Vacuum Spiral device which allowed him to cross great distances such as the Sun in a matter of minutes.

His enemies included Lilith, Dr. Voodoo, and the Immortal Emperor.

  • Wonder Comics #9-20


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
