Charlton/MLJ Before and After: The Atoms

How Captain Atom has changed through the years. From being a superpowered soldier in clad classic silver age costumes, he would be reinvented in a modern era with a nice silvery "containment" suit that expanded the initial silver sleeves to his entire body. The new appearence definitely an upgrade over the original, all sentiments aside.

I'll admit that when drawn by the right artist the DC design looks slick, but I still prefer the Ditko designed blue and red and silver design myself.

I also prefer the Ditko 2.0 version from Charlton.

Although anything is better than the gold skin with red stripes look he got later. Truly hideous.
