Synopsis for The Atom: "What a way to start the new year 1940!"
Origin based on the original story from All-American Comics #19.
Calvin University sophomore Al Pratt, age probably 19, meets homeless former boxing champion and fight trainer Joe Morgan, and lets him live in his recently-inherited country cabin, where Morgan begins training Pratt in boxing and weightlifting. He is unaware that Morgan, suffering from multiple-personality disorder, also trained Jim Harper (the Guardian) and Ted Grant (Wildcat) under different names. After months of intensive training, 5' 2" college student Al Pratt rescues his kidnap-prone not-girlfriend Mary James from some gangsters, and then again from some ballroom robbers, and then adopts the secret identity of "The Atom."
- Contrary to what the cover suggests, Atom and the Legion are not in the same story.
- "What a way to start the new year 1940!" was reprinted in Last Days of the Justice Society of America.
- The Atom:
- Biff Bronston, the bully who often annoyed Al Pratt in his civil identity was unnamed in the original story. It is likely that he received this name in the Post-Crisis as a tribute to the character from Back to the Future, Biff Tannen.
