As a BIG Silver Age fan, I would have to say Ray Palmer will always be the Atom. However, I haven't tried the new version and am open to be persuaded otherwise (but it would take a lot!!)

As a guy who has been collecting (hording?) Atom related "stuff" for years and years, I'm a Ray Palmer devotee. Enough to fill a site with memorabilia/merchandise devoted to him for a few years, anyway.

No one will replace Ray for me, and I hope no one has to. That said, I did reluctantly pick up All New Atom a little over a year ago, and it is quite good. It's a different take on things, and the spirit of Ray is alive with each issue. Of course, there's an entirely new creative team on board for the very next issue, so we'll have to see where things go.

But Ray is the go to guy. I'd love nothing more than another title with him at the helm.

I have just started reading the All New Atom, but find myself longing to read about Ray Parker. This is kinda off topic, but which is the best story arc for the Atom staring Ray?? Thx.

truth be told I think that Sword of Atom is the only Ray Palmer based story I've ever read

someone should definetly do a definite run on Ray
