DC Comics Rebirth and Doomsday Clock Prelude Spoilers for Fall and Rise Of Captain Atom #6 follow?!
As context, As I’ve said before, Captain Atom inspired Doctor Manhattan of the Watchmen and Dr. Manhattan is seemingly responsible for creating the New 52 after Flashpoint by stealing time so that a new world was created. This was all leading The Watchmen Rebirth.
In his pre-New 52 DC Comics persona, Captain Atom for years was a blue hued atomic hero which resembled somewhat Doctor Manhattan. It makes sense that DC Comics in the Rebirth era would want to revitalize the Captain Atom character, change his costume to a different color (in this case red/purple/pink) so that the two characters would be visual dissimilar.
I anticipate Captain Atom will play a critical role in Doomsday Clock event (with the top 5 spoilers / reveals for that here) which is billed as The Watchmen vs. DC Rebirth event of the Fall.
With that, we have the end of the Captain Atom rejuvination mini-series with The Fall and The Rise of Captain Atom #6!
So, do these teaser and preview pages intrigue you enough to pick up the issue?
