The Atom "Legacy" card



I completely bypassed buying up packs of these cards and waited until I could seek them out individually. I guess I'm just not a good DC fan.

After all, these cards are pretty cool. And as you can see, it's Choi and Palmer, further enforcing the fact that Pratt and Palmer just had absolutely nothing to do with one another.
As far as I know, there isn't a Pratt legacy card, even though they'd get to put his nifty costume transition on the front.

So Ryan heads up the front, while Ray does his "light as a feather" deal on the back.

The card provides a wealth of information, so allow me to share some of it with you.

Raymond "Ray" Palmer, the Atom II, had himself his first appearance in Suicide Squad #44.

M'okay.

Soon after the disappearance of Ray, Ryan Choi took over, becoming the Atom III.

Gee whiz, I wonder what else I can learn from these cards!

They look nice anyway...

You had been collecting them, right? Any other ones with make believe on them?

Or is Ray blessed as the only one.

i'll have to go through 'em, but i seem to remember a couple of card "facts" that made me go, "what? don't those guys have bound copies of Who's Who around?"

What an excellent opportunity to show how painfully awful Ryan Choi's costume is, by comparing it to Ray's lovely look, especially as drawn by Kane & Anderson...

Ohh come on Frank, I rather like Ryan's new costume. It's not as good as the original, of course, and it lacks the simple elegance of that design, but it's hardly as bad as all that!

These seem like pretty cool cards, and I'm glad poor Ray made it on the thing at all. They seem pretty content to let him fade away.
