A cold war or cold warfare is conflict between opposing pursued by covert means instead of direct military conflict. it is a phrase that was directly coined by George Orwell when referring to the conflict between the Soviet Republic and the United States. It is this conflict that is most commonly referred to as the the Cold War. Much like the American Civil War is simply known as the Civil War.

In comics there are many cold war characters and perhaps none are as defined by the era as Captain Atom (Allen Adam). Allen war created in March of 1960 and was quite often in opposition to the Soviet Republic in the midst of the Space Race. This was just eleven months after the first man Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space and three years after the launch of the first satellite Sputnik and the and later Explorer I.
