Atom (Ray Palmer) src

The Atom was a member of the Justice League after the Thanagarian invasion.

Ray Palmer was an accomplished scientist and expert on nano-technology. He joined the expanded Justice League after the Thanagarian invasion of Earth, and served as its top engineer with Steel.

As the foremost expert on nanotechnology, Atom assisted the League in repelling Amazo in his revenge towards Lex Luthor. He was, however, little successful, as he was not the League's strongest member.

He almost singlehandedly defeated the Dark Heart, a alien nanotechnological war machine that could devour anything in its path. Shrinking to subatomic size, he entered the core and gave the Dark Heart a "heart attack" by obstructing the path of the fluids going to the heart.


  • Size Alteration: Able to shrink his body to varying degrees (including the subatomic level). As the Atom, Ray can assume any size from his normal six-foot stature down to sub-microscopic. He can also shrink objects and other people.[1][2]


  • Science: He is an expert in many fields of science, one of them being physics and another nanotechnology just to name a few.[1][2]
    • Physics: Doctor Palmer has a Ph.D. in physics and was a professor in Boston.


  • Size Control: Atom would wear a belt to change his size, activated on the belt buckle.
