WHO IS WONDER BOY?
Bobby Barnes’ life was forever changed the day two goddesses gifted him powers & charged him with healing the world. But can even Wonder Woman’s tutelage help him with a task of this magnitude, when he hasn’t even completely healed himself?
“A loving heart is the truest form of wisdom.” – Athena
“The New Adventures of Wonder Boy” is a joyful fan series which takes the original Marstonian message of Wonder Woman and makes it tangible for our modern patriarchal society.
This adaptation takes the DC Comics’ character Bobby Barnes (originally created by Phil Jimenez in Wonder Woman Vol.2, Issue #188), and imagines him 21 years after we were first introduced to him. Giving us a new kind of hero who’s strength is his compassion.
Wonder Boy picks up where the Lynda Carter series left off and pays it great homage, but with a fresh modern new twist.
Characters from the original Lynda Carter series will be reprised, the original source material for Bobby will be honored in fantastic ways, our hero will receive his own origin, including a new villain and a corresponding mission which compliments Wonder Woman’s own: To teach the world how to #LeadWithLove.
In this three-part pilot (aka Made for TV movie) of the fan series, we see Bobby Barnes’s Wonder Boy origin unfold. He is given super powers, met with his first big challenge which precedes even his mentor (Wonder Woman), and is called into his divine mission.
Bobby comes from a broken home, and the Wonder Woman of his life, his mother was taken in a horrible drunk driving accident. On his birthday, and at his all time low, he decides to visit his mother’s gravesite, and is visited by two disguised greek goddesses. After some conversation with them, he receives his 28th birthday gift from them: super-powers!
Five years later, he finds himself working at the I.A.D.C. (Inter Agency Defense Command where Lynda Carter’s Diana Prince used to work) as a junior agent. He receives his first field assignment which could land him his full agent status. He leaps into action as Wonder Boy and brings graceful solution in true Marstonian fashion. But little did he know that there is a larger plot afoot, and it will be a challenge that will rock him to his core.
As Wonder Boy is challenged, he revisits his past and how he arrived to where he is now. We see the emergence of a new villain who’s history precedes WWII, and we find out he is responsible for much of Earth’s (and America’s) conflict. Thankfully, Wonder Woman’s protege has meet a new ally who is very well acquainted with the both the new villain and Amazing Amazon, because this ally is the fourth character to appear from the original Lynda Carter series.
The conflict heats up when our villain unleashes a full assault on WonderBoy and his allies, which leads to Wonder Boy’s capture.
Wonder Boy is beat, broken, and de-powered. It’s through his defeat that he discovers his similarities to our new villain, understands how his past experiences brought him to where he is now, and just in time for his 33rd birthday, realizes his true mission to teach the world how to #LeadWithLove.
To pay homage to Lynda Carter’s original Wonder Woman series, our fan series will ONLY be three seasons. Each season will deal with the three different topics which make up the Wonder Boy formula for teaching the world how to #LeadWithLove.
Topic One: HIDING
Topic Two: HURTING
Topic Three: HEALING
