  1. The Atom is 16 times as strong as an average man and twice as strong as Batman? I haven't read DC comics in 20+ years...when did Atom start the steroids?

  2. Geeze, the site won't let me edit my replies... Oh well:
    The Atom's stats were drawn from the Justice League Sourcebook, published by Mayfair Games. They list his STR as 6 for most of his career and 8 in the Sword of the Atom! I adjusted it to reflect the STR at 6 as a function of his belt, since from what I have read about the Atom all of his powers are derived from his belt. However, I thought as he got smaller, he got stronger. Maybe I'm wrong about that. It has been a while since I've read him in any title other than JLA, and in that title he nevers gets into fights.

  3. Upon further research I decided that there is no evidence that Atom has super STR, so I removed it. I think instead that his high Martial Arts substitutes for his STR when necessary. I'm going with the theory that he had a 6 most of his career and boosted it to an 8 during the Sword of the Atom period.
    I also added Dispersal to represent his ability to pass through materials.
    Thanks for your input.
