Captain Atom #2

    Captain Atom » Captain Atom #2 - Rebuilding Blocks released by DC Comics on December 2011.

    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Losing control of his powers, unable to stop the sensory overload in his mind, Captain Atom wants nothing more than to find a quiet place to regroup. But how can he shut out the signals floating in the air – especially when they're crying out for help?

    Captain Atom has a problem controlling his new powers as they are acting as an antenna making him unstable. This causes conflict at the Continuum on the danger. It also causes internal conflict with the Captain himself.

    The Captain in particular hears a little boy who needs help. The Captain then leaves on a mission of mercy to help a boy struggling with cancer. It is here that the Captain discovers just how god-like his powers are.

    In the prologue a man sees a dangerous dog that can actually mimic the man himself. It may be the man's first and last issue. In another prologue for Batman Noel, Batman tracts down a lead.

    Immersion in Superfluid 0

    A Few Molecules Better 0

    The Good: Not only is the cover very pretty, it's more meaningful than it appears to be initially, and when the meaning becomes apparent, it's pretty touching.There's some pretty cool panel layouts, especially in the first few pages. This definitely gives the book a better feel to it, making the terrible stuff feel less terrible. There's some interesting things going on. Part of me likes the idea that Atom is growing stronger, especially in the seemingly random ways that it does. They explain At...
