Just about all of us has done something stupid for a member of the opposite sex that we’re helpless to resist.
The All New Atom takes it to the next level: He’s willing to battle the undead for a girl he’s had a crush on since boyhood.
Even as new Ivytown University Professor Ryan Choi is just getting used to the idea of being the next size-changing super-hero, he gets a panicked phone call from back home in Hong Kong from Jia, the unrequited love of his life, who says that her life is in danger.
After a long plane flight, Ryan locates the girl of his dreams and discovers the danger she’s in comes from her husband, Alvin, the bully that tormented Ryan back in school — and who nearly killed him.
But when Ryan finds Alvin he is shocked to learn that he’s darned near impossible to stop — since he’s already dead!
The All New Atom gets a little more character development by being put through the wringer courtesy of writer Gail Simone and artists Mike Norton, Andy Owens, Eddy Barrows and Trevor Scott.
