Lance Gardner was a dancer who also worked as a model[1] and a next door neighbor of Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) in Greenwich Village, New York City, who quickly became her friend.[2]

He had a roommate, a charming man named Tod (also spelled Tom/Thomas[1]), about whom he would not stop talking to Diana until, during a party on the terrace of the building where they lived, he managed to introduce them to each other with the intention of serving as match-maker for both.[3]


  • This version of Lance Gardner, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Although the character was created at a time when the Comics Code Authority (CCA) did not allow openly identifying LGBT characters in comic books, Lance Gardner is depicted in a manner clearly implying him to be homosexual.
