2005 Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Absolute Edition cover by George Pérez

Captain Atom was surprisingly prominent on the cover, probably because a) the Silver Age appearance(s) has gotten so little play since the DC acquisition, it immediately says "Infinite Earths," b) the book was the introduction of the Charlton characters to the DCU, so the old school Captain stands out where the Ditko Blue Beetle came over relatively intact, and c) only hardcore geeks are going to blow a c-note on a terribly dated comic book event that looks like a family bible on a cocktail of steroids and LSD. I'd have provided a spotlight scan, but even I didn't bother going back to this well again, pretty pictures or not.

Also pictured: Firehawk, Negative Woman, Power Girl, Lady Quark, Wonder Woman, Harbinger, Martian Manhunter, Superboy-Prime, the Golden Age Ray, Firestorm, Captain Marvel, Harbinger, Dr. Light II, Earth-2 Superman Kal-L, Kid Flash, Earth-2 Wonder Woman, the Fury, Earth-1 Superman Kal-El, Alexander Luthor, Jade, and the Psycho Pirate.
