This article describes a custom creation, custom theme, or other fan material, made by a Brickipedia contributor. It has never been, is not, and will not be officially released.
Ray Palmer was a college student studying physics who discovered a tiny part of the material that makes up white dwarf stars that had fallen to Earth. He hypothesized that if he grinded a lens from it and direct a beam of ultra-violet light, he could shrink anything near the light. It worked, but the objects became unstable and exploded shortly later. While trapped in a cave a few days later with some friends, he was forced to use the beam on himself to try to escape and find help, but found that it worked safely on himself and he was even able to return to his previous height. He continued to develop his technology, and created another device which would give him limited control over his weight as well.
Designer's Notes Edit
- The Atom was originally a character I was going to avoid using in the DCBU, and he almost lost his role(s) in the Justice Society/League to Superman, but I decided in the end that I hate him less than Superman. Not that I dislike Atom, I just always thought that shrinking/enlarging powers were overrated.
