My lovelies, I am in for a rough few days, so please bear with me if I miss a post here or there. But let's be optimistic as we check out Superman!
Or Atoman, as the case may be. There's really no difference.
Anyway, here's him:
I'm not seeing a whole lot of mystery as to whether he's going to "use his strength for good or evil." I mean, he seems awfully happy, so if he does turn out to be evil, he's going to enjoy it so much that he'll be Joker-level crazy with Captain Marvel-level power.
Which would actually be kinda awesome, now that I think about it. Note to self.
Hey! Random Slap! (tm!)
If you're a hired thug, you're going to get slapped at some point. Occupational hazard.
Anyway, he was exposed to atomic radiation somehow (and it's pretty sad that I don't remember how, because I just read the issue about thirty minutes ago), and he was dang optimistic:
Yeah, everyone get on the Google and check out how the radio-active body she had turned out for her.
But these are comics, sooooooo...
How does he know he has all these powers? I mean, he smashed one fire hydrant on the way to his lab and managed to survive a big fall. Not that I'm a scientific genius like he is, but I'm just not connecting the dots here.
Anyway, he makes himself a terrible costume:
Wow. That is terrible. We make fun of costumes as looking like long underwear, but folks.... I give you Exhibit "A."
Hmmmm... turns out he can fly and rip stuff up!
Fate... if you can call crashing a plane after a guy rips off your propeller "fate."
Such optimism. We'll be "seeing a lot of him" in the form of one more issue:
MAN, that smile creeps me out.
Anyhoo, like I said, he had one more issue. Judging by the cover, it looks like he'd already grown so bored with himself as we were:
Not that I can draw, but he's clearly lost of lot of enthusiasm between issue #1 and issue #2. Maybe his atomic powers told him his sales weren't so hot.
See you tomorrow (I hope!)
