History

Super Friends

In the Super Friends animated series, Wonder Dog is portrayed as the pet/sidekick of Wendy and Marvin. He appears in all 16 episodes of the original television series voiced by Frank Welker. This version of Wonder Dog also appeared in the first six issues of the Super Friends comic book series.

DC Comics

Wonder Dog makes his first appearance in the mainstream DC Universe in Teen Titans.[1] He appears to be just a stray dog that finds his way to Titans Tower, and is named Wonder Dog by Miss Martian. Wonder Dog soon transforms into a gigantic dog beast, kills Marvin and viciously attacks Wendy, leaving her paralyzed.[2] Wonder Dog was a hellhound used by Ares' son, King Lycus, whose goal is to destroy Wonder Girl. With every innocent death, Wonder Dog grows stronger; the Titans soon destroy him.

While investigating, the Ultimen spot a huge, hulking beast that throws itself against the bars of its cage. Dwayne McDuffie later confirms that the beast is a reference to Wonder Dog.
