2012 Strong Suits: Superhero Playing Cards The Atom art by Craig Bostick

In an amusing twist on the usual gender biases, the heroines in artist Craig Bostick's series of poker card pieces are allowed to be respectfully shapely and feminine, but the fellows are all rather under-formed and oblong (as a stylistic choice.) Our Ray Palmer looks more like a pillbug than a Mighty Mite. It surely couldn't have been marriage to career woman Jean Loring, as I sincerely doubt she improved his odds of a home cooked meal. I kid, as this is an adorable retro take on the Tony Titan.
