Nathaniel Adam is one of Earth’s most powerful heroes…and one of the most dangerous. As Captain Atom, his body is in a constant state of nuclear flux. He’s always one bad day away from a complete nuclear meltdown…until that one bad day arrives.
Now, the world thinks Nathaniel Adam is dead, destroyed in a blast that also claimed innocent lives. But in reality, Adam took a quantum trip through time and ended up powerless, 20 years in the past. But before he can make a new life and a happy ending for himself, his future is about to catch up to him.
Captain Atom lived a hero, and he died a villain. What will he become when he gets a second chance at life…and what will the world make of him?
