 OAFE - DC Direct Public Enemies: Captain Atom review
The original Captain Atom, from Charlton Comics, was one of those guys who was involved in an accident that, in real life, would have killed him.
Though DC could have gotten away with just repainting Superman's head, they didn't - Captain Atom is nicely coiffed, though that big wave in the front doesn't look strictly "military regulation." His eyes are yellow and rimmed with fl, and he's got a big frown on his face.
Captain Atom is a surprisingly interesting character, considering that he's never been able to hold down his own comic for very long.

 NEWSARAMA.COM: WILL PFEIFER ON CAPTAIN ATOM
Captain Atom is a traditional, nuts-and-bold superhero, while the WildStorm Universe has always been about finding a new modern, postmodern, spin on the concept of the superhero.
So, figuring Captain Atom's time-jumping history combined with the fact that he was bouncing from one universe to another gave us the option of including that scene, making it part of the story, but never completely explaining just what happened.
Captain Atom is still a pretty powerful guy, and as we'll see as he goes up against some of the other heroes of the WildStorm Universe, he knows how to use those powers in some imaginative ways.
