Mikey Parker is a boy whose timeline is split in two by Captain Atom in order to save the world.
As a boy, Mikey sends a text wishing to be cured of terminal brain cancer; and Captain Atom receives this text with his newly discovered electromagnetic text-reading power.
In the first timeline, Atom enters Mikeys brain and neutralizes the cancer cells, miraculously curing him. Six months later, Mikey has regrown his hair and is throwing a frisbie with his family. The miracle leads to Atom developing a god-complex.
In the second timeline, Atom still cures Mikey, but a future Captain Atom steps in and re-establishes Mikey's cancer. Six months later, Captain Atom watches the child's parents grieve at his graveside.
Twenty years in the future of the first timeline, the cured Michael Parker leads worship at the Church of Chrono Mota in Manhattan; and is fervently devoted to Mota's teachings. Michael had been spiritually lost, and on a retreat to the wilderness, he had an epiphany, witnessing Chrono Mota's, rise. He thereafter became Mota's apostle.
When the present Captain Atom makes contact with future Michael; Michael misrepresents his childhood as selfish, petty, careless - even cruel. Now that he is devoted, Michael is ready to execute Chrono Mota's will, where "we wipe the slate clean" and "release a new genesis" which will destroy Earth. When the true form of Chrono Mota appears, Michael realises that Captain Atom's questioning is a test of his faith. In his renewed religious mania, Michael drops Dr Megala's reconstituted dimension ship (the Orb) down a borehole towards the center of the Earth, with Captain Atom following closely behind.
