Superhero Origins: Captain Atom

Superhero Origins: Captain Atom In his original 1960s incarnation, Captain Allen Adam was a physics-minded soldier who was accidentally sent into space – and then blasted apart by a nuclear explosion. Surviving the incident, he gained atomic powers – and a nifty costume. In his later DC incarnation, he started out as Captain Nathaniel Adam. Accused of being a traitor, he cut a deal by participating in a mysterious secret government project, codenamed the Captain Atom Project, which would earn him a pardon – if he survived.
