I'm not sure but I think Captain Atom is going by Monarch now. Or is he just wearing his suit?
I was just wondering about that after reading Countdown and adding a pic for Monarch. His page is blank. I know back in Armageddon it was supposed to be Hank Hall but they changed it. I think Dan DiDio may have mentioned before that it is Captain Atom but I haven't seen anything in the comics. Why can't characters just keep one name? I'm not a HUGE DC reader so I'll wait to see what others have to say.
During the Armagheddon story Monarch was suppose to be Captain Atom but it was leaked so they changed it to Hawk (of Hawk and Dove). Later he became the villian Extent and now Captain Atom is in the moarch armor after he traveled to the Wildstorm universe and came back with a leak. I don't know if he's just wearing the suit or IS Monarch.
Captain Atom says:
"Which made no sense whatsoever. Since his return from Wildstorm, he's been more like his JLU counterpart. Leaking enerfy and what not, which has never been in his character before. Anyway in Countdown 44 He calls himself Monarch. He's Monarch. :\"
During Kingdom Come #1 Captain Atom's suit is damaged and he explodes causing the Kansas incident.
Captain Atom says:
"Raises the question whether he's alive or not. It wouldn't be to bad if he died...as long as he isn't put through Countdown Arena again...:p"
Nah, he aint dead, just like Prime! We know where Prime is showing up next, but no word yet on Atom/Monarch?
