Marvin White (Earth-1)

Search for 'Marvin White (Earth-1)' on Amazon

Though portrayed as a bumbling incompetent in The Super Friends cartoon, the comic based on the show attempted to give him some DCU relevancy. Reaching all the way back to Sensation Comics, E. Nelson Bridwell made him a collateral part of the Wonder Woman myth.

Diana Prince, Wonder Woman scholars may know, was originally a real person. A Navy nurse during World War II, she was heartbroken when her fiancée, Dan White, left for South America. Wonder Woman, in need of a secret identity that would keep her close to Steve Trevor, bought Diana Prince's identity for a few hundred dollars. Prince was then able to go to South America to be with Dan. While there, they consummated their relationship and produced a son, Marvin.

He grew up, believing Wonder Woman the greatest hero on the planet. In his teenaged years, he thus looked her up, and she took him under her wing, still grateful to Prince for the identity she had given her.

After spending some time with The Super Friends, he "graduated" and set our for Ivy University. There, he would have doubtless been taught at some point by Professor Ray Palmer (The Atom).

This character was created for the cartoon series, The Super Friends. He has no existence in the pre-Crisis DCU outside of the cartoon's accompanying comic book. This "Hanna-Barbera Earth" was never named or numbered, but the comic on which its based can reasonably be said to be Earth-1. For more details, please see the title notes for The Super Friends (1976).

Marvin, though, presents some problems with this theory, only because the "real" Diana Prince is so intimately connected with the Earth-2 Wonder Woman's origin. This can be overcome, however, by noting that the Earth-1 Wonder Woman's World War II-era history simply isn't well-documented. Thus it's certainly possible that the Diana Prince episode happened to the Earth-1 Wonder Woman as well. Indeed, Marvin might be used as positive proof that it did.
