Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Atom

Through the magic alchemy of Nature's most awesome sources of energy, Ray Palmer, atomic physicist becomes THE ATOM. A power-packed mighty-might whose brilliant mind and great strength serve law and order against crime and injustice. Tiny Titan, scourge of evildoers, THE ATOM.


Ray Palmer, the Atom of the Silver Age first appeared in 1961 as a reimagining of the Golden Age Atom Al Pratt, who incidentally had no powers. The size altering Atom edged out Marvel's similarly conceived Ant Man by just 1 year and these shorts were the Atom's first onscreen appearances.


  1. Busted again by the grammar police. :)

  2. Didn't mean to go all grammar police on you. Just wasn't sure if there was another old hero I hadn't heard of called Any Man. Feel free to delete my comments if you like :)

  3. Comic book guy on the Simpsons invented a hero "Everyman" but as far as I know, there is no Any Man. You should file the copyright!
