The Atom was an Axis spy smashed by the Spy Smasher.

During World War II, "the Atom" worked in espionage missions in cooperation with Japanese men. Because the Japanese men were all of short stature, the Atom was able to take advantage of the racism that was prevalent at the time to mask them as "gremlins", and using the guise of a fortune teller called Old Meg, acted to scare the party guests of noted Navy Admiral Corby away from the Corby home long enough for the Atom and his allies to search the place for some vital war plans that had been lost there. The plot was foiled by Spy Smasher, who captured the Atom and his cohorts.
