Wonder-Man

A mysterious super-hero, his true identity unknown, who appears in Metropolis in August 1963 - clad in a light purple costume with a black belt; yellow trunks, boots, and cape, and with a yellow letter "W" emblazoned on his chest - and performs a series of stunning super-feats that soon have him eclipsing Superman as the great hero of Metropolis.

Wonder-Man, who is invulnerable to kryptonite, is endowed with all the same super-powers as Superman.  He is in reality Ajax, who was until recently the strongest of Superman's own Superman robots.  His super-sophisticated robot mind has been transferred out of its robot body - and into an utterly lifelike chemically-made android body - by members of the Superman Revenge Squad as part of an elaborate plot to destroy Superman.
