Wonder Boy (II). Dick Cole is left as an infant orphan at the doorstep of the famous-but-genial Professor Blair of the Farr Military Academy. Blair decides that he's going to make this child as all-around wonderful as it is possible for man to be. So Cole receives a wealth of training and by his teenage years is super-strong, has great recovery skills, and is a great athlete and acrobat. He uses these abilities to excel at the Academy and to fight crime. He appears in stories with titles like “Colossus, Famous Circus Gorilla at Large!” “The Mystery of the Little Men,” and “The Rampaging Robot.”
