THE FURY OF FIRESTORM: THE NUCLEAR MEN #15Seeing Captain Atom classically drawn by Jurgens really brings home what a stupid Zippy the Pinhead redesign Freddie Williams gave him. What just occurred to me as well was the redundancy of the Captain being a white male in a universe in desperate need of diversity. Linking these two characters is a fun bit of nostalgia, but especially with Ronnie Raymond at the wheel, it seems like nothing much has changed in the quarter century since they began sparring. Natalie Adam and Jason Rusch would have worked far better.
