The Evolution of the Species wiki last edited by guttridgeb on 06/24/13 04:39AM View full history

Charged by nuclear energy, possessing vast molecular powers, Captain Atom has the potential to be a literal god among men – a hero without limits. But the question is: Will he lose himself in the process? Don't miss the start of a legend from writer J.T. Krul (GREEN ARROW, TEEN TITANS) and artist Freddie Williams II (JSA ALL-STARS)!

Captain Atom fights a man in a robotic suit. During the fight he inadvertently reduces the metal in the suit to dust. He nearly does the same this to his own hand. He goes to the Continuum to talk with Dr. Heinrich Megala. Megala tells him he is fortunate it did not happen in his brain because if it had it could not be stopped. Just after this is revealed a simultaneous disaster happens in New York City. Atom races to the scene and stops the disasters. It ends on a cliffhanger.

J.T. Krul is way out of his element. 0

This Comic was doomed from the beginning.  The "Charlton" characters, like Captain Marvel don't fit well in the DCU when you really think about it.  Captain Atom is a great example, his Alan Moore composite of Dr. Manhattan is far more popular and Iconic then Captain Atom is.  Speaking of Dr. Manhattan many will see how this comic is remnant of Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen.  From the look to demeanor fans of Watchmen will see more Manhattan then Classic Captain Atom.  I feel this change of direct...
