Captain Allen Adam was an Air Force career man who knew more about rocketry, missiles, and the universe than any man alive. He was a specialist of the missile age, a trained, dedicated soldier who was a physics prodigy at eight, a chemist, and a ballistics genius. In short, Captain Adam was an invaluable space-age soldier even before that memorable day at Cape Canaveral, Florida, when an Atlas missile was being readied for blast-off with an atomic warhead inside and Captain Adam making the final last-second adjustments. Trapped onboard the rocket, Allen Adam was killed when the warhead detonated in Earth's upper atmosphere. However, his consciousness somehow survived the blast and rebuilt his body. Upon returning to Earth, he found himself gifted with amazing powers. He became Captain Atom, super-spy and super-hero.
