N:TAS DCU: The Atom's Family: Micron 10-04-10

"NightwingTAS" continues his Atom animated series concept cavalcade from the Super Buddies message board with a retcon flavor...
"Adam Cray was once known as the Atom, the first man to take up Ray Palmer's hero identity while he was believed to be dead. Ray recruited Adam to pose as The Atom while he took a spot of a fallen member of the Micro Squad. Adam joined Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad, and found out that fellow member Deadshot was the man who killed his dad, and Deadshot told him he can have one free shot at him. While on a mission Adam saved the life of Amanda Waller, something she did not forget. On another mission the Micro Squad member Blacksnake impaled Adam through his heart believing him to be Ray Palmer. Amanda Waller not forgetting her debt to Adam took a DNA sample and used her Checkmate and Cadmus connections to have him put in a regeneration chamber using cloned tissue to heal him. After he was revived Adam took up the name Micron and joined Ray Palmer's growing family of pint sized superheros."

That's a lot of road to travel just to get to Adam Cray. Maybe he could have had a brother or something? It's kind of cool that Cray gets to reclaim his mantle as the poor fashion standard bearer in the Atom family (influencing '90s Teen Titans Ray Palmer, sadly,) but I'd have taken this opportunity to hue closer to the Justice League Beyond Micron's creepier duds.
