Synopsis for "Fifteen Minutes of Fame!"

Strobe listens gleefully to the news of his most recent robbery, but his story is upstaged by the Atom's return. Strobe goes to find the Atom, and it isn't hard, as news cameras follow Ray Palmer and all of his civilian associates, which includes Professor Alpheus Hyatt, who the Atom visited and told his recent events.

The Atom is interrupted by a blast from outside, and blinded by the initial surprise, Strobe manages to grab him and claim victory. But when he holds his hand out to the news cameras, the Atom has shrunk and escaped. Concussion pulses almost hit the Atom; who shrank and climbed into Strobe's armor. Ultimately, Ray shorts out the armor's power source and it explodes. Then Strobe is begging to have the flaming armor taken off.

In Langley, Virginia, the C.I.A. watches as events unfold in the media -- just as they planned -- and Agent Bailey calls the Atom to make him an offer: join the C.I.A., and get a new identity.
