Sue Palmer src
Susan "Sue" Palmer (a.k.a. Mary Palmer) was the mother of Ray Palmer, the Atom.

Earth-One

During the 1938 New England hurricane, Mary was saved from drowning by a weather researcher named Palmer. Unknown to Mary, he had help from their time-traveling future son, the Atom.[1]

Post-Crisis

Sue Palmer died when Ray was a young adult in his twenties.[2]

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Pre-Crisis, Ray Palmer's mother made only one appearance, in which she was named Mary.[1]
  • Her tombstone gives her lifespan as 1928-1975. While the actual years should not be considered canon, it does show she died at the approximate age of 47.[3]
