Does Captain Atom need to eat and drink to survive. Does he go to the bath room like regular humans? Does he still have sex as is armor is permanent correct?
Is it the same for Major Force?

@kingpin1: I'm pretty sure he's entirely self sustaining, and since he doesn't eat or drink there is no waste created. His armor is permanent as well. And the same would go for major  force.

Captain Atom's armor isn't permanent. He's able to take it on and off at will. 
 

As a normal human, he functions as such, and has sex as well. With the armor on, he's self-sustaining.

@Static Shock: interesting...i always knew there was skin under his armor but i never knew he could take it on and off at will...

@difficlus: A lot of people don't know, and some seem to think that he's unable to take it off because Major Force cannot.

Well, the last issue of Generation Lost says he doesn't need to eat, one of two members of the current JLI who don't.

Yes. That was during a retrospective scene in the issue where Power Girl was brainwashed, back in the day when the original JLI was run by Max Lord. During that time, Captain Atom didn't need to eat with the Dilustel skin covering his body. Without it, he was a normal human and his body functioned like one.
