By the modern era, the "like X, but a girl!" thing had pretty much run its course and nowadays you can't get a Batwoman or a Supergirl off the ground without some new spin (or a whole lotta nostalgia). So, given that you already had Wonder Girl and Troia fulfilling the same function, there wasn't much reason to do "like Y, but a boy!" Plus, Diana, skateboard. If John Byrne were here, that'd earn him a depowering and a beatdown, sight unseen. But I like sharks, so here's some selected scans from the Wonder Boy that Wasn't.
Yay sharks! Screw dolphins, man, sharks are where it's at.
If you're wincing right now, then don’t be alarmed. A feeling of intense and crushing "they cannot be serious" at the concept indicates only that you are still sane.
