New 52 Captain Atom Respect Thread

#1 Posted by WarBlade539 (4577 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't find a respect thread for The New 52 Captain Atom and decided to make one. I know that most people don't like the Captain Atom series but, I think his new powers and abilities are amazing...Godlike.

Possibly saved a young woman from Drug Overdose
Vaporized bullets in thin air
Stopped a man from slipping and falling by matter-manipulation
Gave a woman sufficient strength to lift a rubble

Sure :)

Lets go chronologically shall we that way its easier to keep track of his feats.

Captain Atom 0: The creation of Captain Atom and a short fight with the Army, which of course Captain Atom wins.

Captain Atom 01: While fighting a Giant robot he realizes he has the ability to see thing all the down to their very atoms (microvision) and has the ability to transmutate it. That shows unbound molecule manipulation powers, because well everything is made up of atoms.

In the same issue, he neutralizes a nuclear power plant from exploding, then goes into the core of a volcano to neutralize it, while he succeeds in neutralizing the volcano his body seem to be destroyed in the process (he reconstructs his body next issue the scans are just below under heading Captain Atom 02)

Captain Atom 02: Reconstructs his entire body, after an apparent destruction, from water using molecule manipulation

In the same issue it is mentioned that his powers have no limit.

In the same issue he demonstrates size manipulation, he shrinks his size, enter's Mikey's head who is suffering from cancer and heals him.

Captain Atom 03 Captain Atom is so fast that everything else looks still to him, everything except Flash that is

In the same issue, Shows energy absorption, redirection and molecule manipulation in 1 instance by absorbing a nuke, redirecting the energy and transmutating the area around him

Captain Atom 04: Fights the army, demonstrates durability, energy absorption and transmutation

In the same issue, Ranita burns her hands just by touching him

Captain Atom 05 Captain Atom contemplates various ways on how to help Ranita, one way is he can make himself huge , smash through the army and get to her. While this is not something that actually took place, i think the issue is trying to tell us that Captain Atom can not only make himself small (like he showed in Captain Atom 02) but can increase his size as well.

In the same issues, being the good guy he is, chooses to take a subtle approach. He goes invisible/ intangible and phases through to Ranita's room. It seems he has every powers in the book.

Captain Atom 06: fights and kills a mouse who has mutated similar powers as Captain Atom

In the same issue he heals Ranita's hand

Captain Atom 07 In this issue we get to look at an alternate version of Captain Atom, and we get to see the first contact of Captain Atom with alternate version.

Captain Atom 08 Captain Atom's future self shows Captain Atom is capable of time manipulation. He is capable of accessing the time stream from which he can simply jump to any point in the history, past, present or future (how cool a power is that)

Ranita, the lady whose hand he healed, now possesses superpowers because of Captain Atom's action. The implication is clear, Captain Atom is capable of giving people superpowers.

Captain Atom 09 More demonstration of Ranita's powers and we get to see Captain Atom as a god and his eventual destiny to be Chrono Moto the destroyer of Worlds

Sorry i will have to come back and complete it tomorrow. Its 1 am, i better sleep, have work tomorrow morning. Will post feats from CA 10-12 tomorrow, the biggest feat that i am missing here is reality warping.

@Mr_Ingenuity: As promised here are the remaining scans.

Captain Atom 10: Absorbs energy from various Captain Atom, it looks as though the issue is trying to tell us he has unlimited energy absorption abilities

In the same issue Captain Atom Makes himself a physical body, while his energy self remain entact. The physical menifestation goes on a date with Ranita, while the energy self is stuck in lab who starts granting people wishes (next issue)

Captain Atom 11: In this issue Captain Atom decides to grant people wishes which you must admit is pretty cool.

Created a box out of thin air that one of Captain Atom's collegue lost as a kid in a fire, with all the goodies inside it, by plucking the memory from his head

Brought back a work friend's dead mom.

Allowed Megala, a guy who's legs dont work anymore, fly all the way to space, galaxies and beyond

Captain Atom 12: We see some of his wishes gone wrong, i honestly felt bad from Captain Atom after reading the issue, he tries to help everyone but things go horribly wrong.

The box he created for the friend explodes, Megala is in seizer and the mom , despite her having all the memories is not truely human as she has no organs.

We see captain Atom travel faster than the speed of light and reach all the way to the edge of the universe with Megala alongside him

We see Captain Atom realize granting wish wasn't the best thing to do, and is forced to erase the dead mom he created out of existence

The issue ends with him realizing he is not really a "man" and he doesn't belong on earth.

Comicvine apparently doesnt like me, for some reason my scans of Captain Atom healing Mikey's cancer in Captain Atom 02 seem to have disappeared, re-uploading them

I think that is most if not virtually all of his feats thus far (Captain Atom 13 hasnt come out in Australia yet so dont have the issue with me)

@starrk_coyote: @MonsterStomp: A complete list of his feats from Captain Atom 0 to Captain Atom 12 are above , i though you guys might like to check it out, as you seem to be interested in knowing what he has done thus far. Hope this helps.

@Killemall: Wow you really went all out on this. Thanks for contributing. Captain Atom deserves this. His powerset is under used imo.

Cant disagree with the rest :)

So is it safe to assume that with the wildstorm universe being incorporated into the main DC one, Captain Atom has become a mix of the old one with Dr. Manhattan?

#16 Posted by MonsterStomp (17813 posts) - - Show Bio

@Killemall: Probably should have asked earlier, but the scan where CA flies to the edge of the universe. Could you post the entire scan of that particular feat or just fill in the following blanks...

Where did CA take off from?

How long did it take for him to get there?

If I'm understanding it right, thats the most impressive speed feat I've seen in a while.

#17 Posted by Killemall (18564 posts) - - Show Bio

@MonsterStomp: The collection of scan above is nearly complete if you notice. Lets try.

All the above takes place in the same issue, you can see Captain Atom and Captain Atom was in the Horizon lab there in the scan above, from where he decides to grant Megala his wish and takes him to the edge of the universe.

There is no mention of how long it took its reasonable to assume it didnt take very long. And that is indeed the best travel speed feat i have seen in a long long time. Would you like me to post the entire issue so you can make a better judgement?

From The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man #14: Atom can apparently open windows in space that allow him to see things happening on Earth while he's on the moon.

I dunno why the artist decided to shift his look back to the metallic form.

Is it possible that is pre-52 Captain atom reappearing?

Beautiful artwork, great character, but his flaw is that he's too close to Dr. Manhattan.

#29 Posted by rjohnson89 (14 posts) - - Show Bio

you say his flaw is that he is to close to dr manhattan.... maybe dr manhattans flaw is that dr manhatten was based off of him... before dc bought his rights, he was the part of manhatten in watchman

Captain Atom easily seems like the strongest hero on Earth.

Captain Atom easily seems like the strongest hero on Earth.

And to think Superman constantly gets the title of the most powerful being on Earth. Atom seems to be a Dr Manhattan on overdrive in the New 52.

@killemall When did the series end? Has there not been any info on Captain Atom's whereabouts in the New 52?

ahh, but The Watchmen writer basically copied Cap Atom first by copying his power-set! What was weird that the Cap Atom in the Injustice Gods series was totally different from the New 52 one, which as you say did look like Dr Manhattan. Anyway, Cap Atom appeared to have a more diverse power-set. In the Watchmen, Dr Manhattan essentially turned humans to mush and tanks into scrap, whereas Atom turned a jet plane into a load of feathers, which was awesome!

Yes, that was good, but i mean not power-set and looking, but modus operandi, acting, thinking... "What should i do? What i shouldn't do? Whaaait, i am not human, so i go to the moon!!!". That is Dr.Manhattan way of thinking, not his.

This is where Doctor Manhattan would be, if Alan Moore wasn't such a whiney little girl about everything DC does pertaining to Watchmen.
