He one shots Mongul. Then he shows his immense superiority in speed to Barry Allan. Yet, the third scan shows his best shot is enough to destroy the planet they're on. However, the same scan makes it clear he can't endure planetary level explosions and that significant time would pass before his atoms reassimilate.

That's not what he said. He said that he's going to blow himself up. The planet being destroyed is a side effect, not the cause of his body being destroyed.

Disagree.

Scans show that Atom intended to blow the planet up and that that would not only destroy his body, but cause his death. He also indicated his atoms would eventually reassimilate over time and not right away.

Otherwise, why not just use an energy strike to destroy the force field? Why go the extreme measure of actually killing himself?

CA can't endure planetary level explosions.

Your conclusion doesnt follow from the scans. In fact they're pretty clear. Atom decides that in order to break the force field he has to blow himself up. Doing so would have the effects of 1) blowing up the planet, and 2) breaking the force field.

As far as why he does this and not just shoot off an energy attacks... well the answer seems clear as well, because he cant take down the force field with such an attack, for whatever reason.

Team 1

Unless Classic Dr Fate and Starheart Alan Scott are allowed

Dr Fate is classic version.

Alan is non-full-Starheart since he's not completely bloodlusted.

Their only hope is to BFR him.

I edited rules, no BFR allowed. They have to win by other means.

@willpayton:

Yeah, that was it. It said the universe may actually be contained within a space that's trillions of times smaller than the width of an atom, if I recall correctly.

Hmm, yeah I'm not really familiar with that idea to be honest, so I cant say much on it. From what I recall it came about from a fact of how black holes work, namely that the entropy of a black hole grows as the square of the radius. So, you can describe all the information inside by looking at the surface of the event horizon... or something like that.

So yeah the idea is that it's possible that the universe is a 2-dimensional structure that only seems 3-dimensional. But, I dont remember anything about the size. I dont think it has to be a very small thing. It'd still be as big as the universe, just in 2 dimensions. Basically like a hologram.

It's an interesting idea, but I wouldnt put much stock on it at the moment. I'd put my money on the universe being 3-dimensional just like it appears, if I had to bet on it. =)
