N:TAS DCU: The Atom's Family: Molecule 10-08-10
"NightwingTAS" continues his Atom animated series concept cavalcade from the Super Buddies message board with teen team spirit...
"Tony Johns lived his life quietly always blending in to a crowd almost disappearing. Tony never knew about his true parentage until the Silver Lantern Argent and the Teen Titans East approached him. They revealved to Tony that he is really half H'San Ntall, a alien race who impregnated 9 woman and sent 8 of them back to Earth to give birth to them so upon their 16th birthdays their powers will kick in and they will be better able to invade Earth. Upon hearing about this Tony wanted to run disappear, anything, but what he did shocked him, he shrunk. He eventually returned to his original size and after talking to Argent Tony decided to join the Teen Titans East and become Molecule. Argent presented Molecule with a costume that resembled the one that The Atom wore when he was a Teen Titan with her. Molecule and Argent grew close and the two have begun dating."I think Molecule was one of the legions of icon derivations Geoff Johns came up with for Teen Titans in the wake of 52/One Year Later. His biography at Titans Tower.com consists of "The super-shrinking adventurer known as Molecule joined the Teen Titans for a short time after the events of Infinite Crisis. Molecule was later murdered by the Terror Titans." Seems N:TAS elaborated here, and I like how he tied the character into Dan Jurgens' run. The costume is distinctly Molecule's own, and I think this is one of the better extensions of "The Atoms' Family."
