Terror of the Atomic Skull

I dunno why I was thinking of this, but I just got a fun little idea into my head. If you don't get the list's name reference then read some more Superman comics lol. Well like the name implies the series is about the Atomic Skull, specifically the Joe Martin version and how I would write a comic featuring him. Despite the title, it's also a nod to the cheesy sci-fi movies of old and if I had to describe the tone of this idea, it would be a comic with a lighter tone made in mind in compared to the DCU presented. I think it would work best as an Alt. Universe or Elseworld story than a main universe one.

This list is incomplete and more will be added later to it.

This is a pretty f####ing cool idea! It comes off as modern, but with a mix of some Jack Kirby-esque magic. It reminds me of the most recent OMAC series, which I thought was great. I'd totally read this. And you included Nuclear Man, I have to give you props for that.

@The_Tree: Thank you very much dude. the comment of Jack Kirby made me smile alot, cause he's my all time favorite comic artist and writer. His New Gods got me into comics along with a few other favorites. And yes, nuke Man makes any list better. lol

I just have one question.

WHY HASN'T DC DONE THIS?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!

It sounds a LOT better than most other Elseworld's stories!!

@Smart_Dork_Dude: Lol thanks dude, and I have no idea, maybe DC hates good ideas?

@Thorion88: I wouldn't even be against it happening in the main universe! I mean, they're making Poison Ivy a hero, and Harley Quinn an anti-hero I GUESS. Okay I don't read that book, but you get my point.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: Well i think it should happen cause in the old DCU after Neron cured Joe's insanity he said he was gonna try and become a hero to honor his own personal hero and then he just becomes a generic thug villain getting beaten by Manhunter and such like trash...I mean a guy who could get into a fist fight with Superman reduced to a cannon fodder dork? No way, he should be up there in the meta tier at least.

@Thorion88: Huh, yeah that ALWAYS annoys me when powerful villains are reduced to nameless henchman level. I remember in Cry for Justice where Hal and Green Arrow are shown standing in a street full of villains they apparently beat, and BIZARRO was one of them. Bizarro, who is just as powerful as Superman, being beaten by just a Green Lantern and a guy with trick arrows. Don't get me wrong I know a GL ring is powerful and Ollie is awesome, but Bizarro in ADDITION to all those other villains just made me mad, especially since I'm a Bizarro fan!!
