Not-So-Secret Origins of the JLA - The Atom
Some more reader- requested material. I didn't have this story in my collection (although I have read it several times) but one of our readers, Neill, stepped up to plate and offered me these scans.
The Atom joined the JLA in Justice League of America #14, making him the second super-powered League-er to join.
There had been a Golden Age Atom, a small guy named Al Pratt who had no superpowers. He was just feisty. This new Atom, however, was a little more "super".
And here, from 1961's Showcase #34 "Birth of the Atom" by Gardner Fox, pencils by Gil Kane and inks by Murphy Anderson.
