Captain Atom Respect Thread

For a few weeks I´ve been looking for feats for CA but I only found the one made about New 52 Captain Atom and personally I think it is very well done by the community but besides that I haven´t found here yet about both Pre and New 52 so I want to make it, anyone is welcome to put their own feats to make this complete.

I´m also going to link here the New 52 post as it has expanded descriptions of CA but I´m still using a few of them: http://comicvine.gamespot.com/captain-atom/4005-2050/forums/new-52-captain-atom-respect-thread-688013/

To start one of the most impressive feats yet, here CA creates his own universe within the Quantum field, it´s stated to be an exact replica from his own universe with same heroes and even an Spectre, with the only exception being that in this universe he never became Captain Atom, he then finds out his dog died so he destroys this universe and instantly recreates it with his dog alive, at the end of the issue he ultimately destroys it for good.

NEW 52 FEATS

Defeats the Superman on steroids aka Mr Majestic

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

He absorbs the energy of Major Force exploding, a villain with virtually same potential as CA but weaker due to his will and imagination

No Caption Provided

Defeats a villain who can adapt to any energy attack by using beams at different frequencies making his attacks unadaptable (this may be work as well with Doomsday but who knows)

No Caption Provided

Turns down the powers of this guy, showing his domain on energy manipulation

No Caption Provided

While fighting this Hulk like being Maul and he manages to revert him from his current form to human rearranging his molecules

No Caption Provided

This happens in the Captain Atom Armageddon arc, he somehow gets affected by Void who is similar in power scale as CA, all nine issues were about he being a threat to the Wildstorm universe as he eventually would explode and took the whole universe with him without much to do about it, at the end fighting Apollo a chain reaction happens on him caused by the energy of Void, during this he killed by touch Apollo, Midnighter and finally Jenny Quantum

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

He looks directly to Johnny Sorrow's face and lives, for anyone who doesn´t knows, Johnny Sorrow has the power among other things to kill anyone just by making them look at his real face (for example, he once traveled to the Rock of eternity, looked at Shazam and turned him to stone) while CA just blackout

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Fought the first version of Monarch who had beams that could kill every hero on Earth (yeah, Superman included) and CA tanked it and redirect it (energy manipulation here), then both were sent to the past and CA even weaken kept fighting.

During a future/alternate reality vision which was stated to be pretty real he destroys the whole city during a breakdown and his power was stated to have unimaginable amount of energy

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

He taps into every computer on Earth and learns everything about the Wildstorm universe in matter of minutes or even seconds, first from a public phone and then from the Pentagon system where he calculates the outcome of several simulations, he stated to be more potent using it himself than the computer of Mr Majestic which can run through the data of several Earths across the multiverse and has a processor that runs simulation in matter of hours that are the equivalent to lifetimes.

Here is an actual explanation on why Captain isn´t regularly above Superman when he is fighting, if he wanted to increase his level the radiation his body would produce would be enough to irradiate half Tokyo only to match Powergirl so he holds back to prevent the people to be affected

No Caption Provided

When fighting an enraged Red Tornado who had become the avatar of... something, air, idr remember RT made a tornado to wipe out several countries of the continent in order to wipe them out CA made another tornado by spinning that could rival the one made from RT, he even stated Captain should have died at that point like a thousand times

No Caption Provided

Fighting an enraged and mind controlled Magog CA during an attempt to prevent the citizens of being affected by the massive radiation of Magog spear, he consumes the spear energy which has virtually limitless capacity. Then this explodes and CA contains the explosion reducing the damage to a few squares before being pulled to the time stream into the future

MONARCH

I´ll try to explain more or less what I´ve understand myself about Monarch and why he is so powerful so I can put a little backstory and define well his power on the scans.

As I said above, CA went for a while to the Wildstorm universe and came back as Monarch but, how or when did he got all that power? If you read Captain Atom: Armageddon this story tells the time of CA in the Wildstorm universe and how it ended with Nathaniel making his return to his Earth during the events of Infinite Crisis crashing on Bludhaven wanting to help his Earth but he didn´t appeared until Battle for Bludhaven one year later where he is kept prisoner in a comatose state presumably having a breach in his skin that is taking him to a critical state of explosion, the army explains they found him unconscious and having the breach after he was attacked by a mysterious man from the back after his return, he is then rescued by the Atomic Knights that as a way to prevent him from exploding make the armor of Monarch designed to contain his energy (just to contain it, not improving or amping his powers) and waking him up from his coma, although as a result of his continuing travel through dimensions and the attack he received his mind was affected taking him to an state of craziness that led to his conduct as a dictator aka Monarch, after he woke up he detected the presence of Major Force and went to find him

He indeed found him, and he without the need to fight just absorbed the energy of Major Force.

No Caption Provided

He casually makes Bludhaven explode

He created an Arena and teleported the three more powerfull versions of several heroes, he then proceeds to kill more than the half of the heroes with a single blast just to prove a point (notice a version of Lobo was killed there)
