First appeared in National Comics #1 (July 1940): "The Boy From the Meteor". No apparent relation to DC Comics's popular Wonder Woman, the character lapsed into public domain prior to D.C.'s purchase of Quality Comics.
Wonder Boy last appeared under Quality Comics banner in National Comics #26 (November): "...The long bloody hands of America’s enemies..." The character reappeared two years later in Elliot Publishing Co's Bomber Comics (along with several other characters that originally appeared in National Comics). The circumstances behind the move are unclear. In 1955, he was one of the characters to be used by Ajex-Farrell Comics in Terrific Comics #16 and Wonder Boy #17 and 18. The character has not reappeared outside reprints since.
