Atlas (DC)(02 - Project 7734)
Real Name:
Search for 'Atlas (DC)(02 - Project 7734)' on Amazon

Atlas rarely has need for weapons, relying instead on his mighty strength and agility. It is not clear if his superhuman abilities derive from the glowing crystal taken from the Crystal Mountain, or are instead inherent in his genetic makeup. Although it is clear that his father was mortal, there is evidence that suggests Atlas may himself be an immortal.

A hero in undefined ancient times, possibly in Greece. As a child, Atlas saw the slave raiders of the evil King Hyssa burn his village, capture his mother and friends, and kill his father. Escaping from the slavers' clutches, young Atlas was taken in by a man named Chagra, who observed that Atlas was 'a strange child' with the strength of a full grown man. When Chagra saw the strange glowing crystal carried by Atlas, he realized that Atlas's people were from the fabled Crystal Mountain and that Atlas was the inheritor of the mountainís powers. As Atlas grew to manhood, he became a hero in his own right, helping innocent people with his Herculean strength. However, his lust for vengeance against Hyssa was ever present. All his training, all his preparation, all his adult life led up to the one moment when Atlas would confront King Hyssa one final time. It is not yet known how that confrontation turned out.
