The Book of Atom (Ray Palmer)

The Book of Atom

C3G DC WAVE 7
THE PURSUIT OF JUSTICE




Comic PDF



Mini PDF

The figure used for this unit is a Heroclix figure from the DC Origin set.
Its model number and name are #046-048 / Atom .
_________________________________________________________________
Character Bio - "Ray Palmer creates a belt tool from what was initially depicted as white dwarf star matter, which allows him to shrink down to subatomic size. Furthermore, he develops a special costume that he can wear at most times that only becomes visible when he shrinks significantly. In addition, he develops new equipment that allows him to instantly alter his molecular density to whatever degree he desires. This allows him to glide on air currents on a low setting, while a high setting allows him to handle or strike objects with the equivalent strength of his normal size and build. A favorite travel method is to call some location on the telephone and when the intended phone is answered, Palmer can shrink down enough to literally travel through the phone lines in seconds to emerge out of the answering phone.
"Originally, his size and molecular density abilities derive from mechanisms in his belt with a back-up device in his gloves. He carries out the bulk of his early superheroic adventures in his home of Ivy Town where he often helps his girlfriend, lawyer Jean Loring, win her cases (...) Palmer has fought against several alien and supernatural threats, as well as having his own rogues gallery: his arch enemy is Chronos the Time Bandit, the menace of the Bug-Eyed Bandit, and the dangerous eco-terrorist Floronic Man. He also had several time travel adventures by means of Professor Alpheus V. Hyatt's Time Pool. The Atom is a member of several incarnations of the Justice League, and the team is gracious enough to supply a special chair scaled to his default size which can elevate to whatever height needed so he can easily partake in team meetings without having to go out of costume. There, he meets Hawkman (Katar Hol pre-Hawkworld, Carter Hall post-Hawkworld), one of his closest friends in the superhero community. Neither character achieved major popularity, and even in their heyday were mostly supporting characters, often with Palmer as a specialist in size alteration who was often needed to access extremely confined areas only he could access," (wikipedia.org)

-Strategy, Tactics and Tips-
  • Tiny figures are particularly hard to squash; not only are they powerful defensively, but they are immune to most powers that specify size. Be sure to check what figures a special power effects.
  • Tiny Stealth allows the Atom to avoid engagements with most figures, but he is vulnerable to - and can counter - other Tiny figures. Current Tiny figures include: Ant-Man, Atom, Fire Ant Swarm, Killer Bee, and Wasp.

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

NAME = ATOM
SECRET IDENTITY = RAY PALMER

SPECIES = HUMAN
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = SCIENTIST
PERSONALITY = DARING

SIZE/HEIGHT = TINY 2

LIFE = 2

MOVE = 4
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 3
DEFENSE = 6

POINTS = 50


CARRIED
Before moving a friendly adjacent figure that is not Tiny, if Atom is not engaged with any Tiny figure, you may choose that figure for Atom's Carried special power. After moving the chosen figure, you may place Atom on any unoccupied space adjacent to the chosen figure.

MOLECULAR IRRITANT
After attacking with Atom, you may choose an opponent's adjacent Unique Hero that is not Tiny, remove all unrevealed Order Markers from this card, and place Atom on the chosen Hero's Army Card. Atom cannot take any turns while he is on the chosen Hero's card. A Unique Hero with Atom on its Army Card rolls 1 fewer attack die and 1 fewer defense die. If the chosen Hero receives a wound, place Atom on an empty space adjacent to the chosen Hero. If no empty spaces are available or if the chosen Hero is destroyed while Atom is on its Army Card, Atom is destroyed.

TINY STEALTH
Atom cannot be targeted by non-adjacent figures and only takes leaving engagement attacks from Tiny figures.

SUPER STRENGTH

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

I really like the second one. Especially if the magnifying glass is obvious on the card.

(and first Official Member of the C3G Target Audience!)

The correct way to add C3G playtests to posts.
My favorite day EVER on heroscapers.

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

I think I may have put the mini up against hexes at one point ... I don't recall now, though. I've been sitting on this write up for months now.

It is about 2 hexes high.

EDIT: Nevermind, I thought Ant-Man was Tiny 1.

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

Cool. Another annoying little bugger. I like that we're doing more figures < 100 points lately. It's probably where C3G designs are most needed to help round out the draft pool.

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

Very true. I'm really hoping to hit that 50 point mark for this guy, and tweak if necessary to reach it, so he can round out the Hawkman/Hawkgirl army at 500 points.

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

OK, so going with the second comic art here ... it's been about 59 hours and no further comments, so I'm feeling it's safe to send this guy to the ERB.

Edit: ERB sent!

NAME = ATOM
SECRET IDENTITY = RAY PALMER

SPECIES = HUMAN
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = SCIENTIST
PERSONALITY = DARING (Yeah, for Atom--love this guy!)
SIZE/HEIGHT = TINY 2

LIFE = 2
MOVE = 4
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 3
DEFENSE = 6
POINTS = 50?

CARRIED
Before any figure adjacent to Atom that is not Tiny moves, if Atom is not engaged, then after that figure's movement ends, you may place Atom on any unoccupied space adjacent to that figure.

(Awesome power. Wish all Tiny units had it.)

MOLECULAR DISTRACTION
After moving, instead of attacking, you may choose one adjacent enemy Unique Hero that is not Tiny, remove all unrevealed Order Markers from this card, and place Atom's figure on the chosen Hero's Army Card. A Unique Hero with Atom's figure on its Army Card rolls 1 fewer attack and defense die. If the chosen hero receives a wound, you must immediately place Atom on one empty space adjacent to the chosen hero. If no empty spaces are available or if the chosen hero is destroyed while Atom is on the chosen hero's Army Card, Atom is destroyed.

(Fun stuff. My only question is can Atom get off. It sounds like no, but it isn't clear. If it is No, then I recommend adding a note saying that while Atom is on another card he cannot take a turn, or something to that effect. (If he can take a turn, then that definitely needs explaining.)

Sure, you clear off the OMs, but you can put them back and, well, then what? It's a sound strategy, esp. if I'm a bit desperate, to place OMs there, hoping he'll get knocked off, so I think it's wrong to say that you can't put OMs on Atom. My opinion is that the best choice is just to say that he can't take turns while his figure is on another card.

Or, of course, you can allow him to jump off, but that means a whole other set of rules/wording.

On another note, is 1 each enough? I'd be tempted to playtest at least one of them (or both) at -2, but it's your call--he's got Super Strength and has no other purpose once he's on that card...)

TINY STEALTH
Atom cannot be targeted by non-adjacent figures and only takes leaving engagement attacks from Tiny figures.

SUPER STRENGTH
I like it. A fun idea and great concept. Too bad you can't squeeze a mini super leap on there or something as well, but that is one full card.

Glad to see Atom coming...

All best, V
Great comments! You're absolutely right about him needing something specifying that he can't take a turn while on the card. I thought about the -2/-2, but I was worried it might be too powerful at 50 points. I think playtesting should let us know whether any adjustments there are a good idea or not.

Thanks!
Bats

Re: The Book of Atom - Design Phase

I've added this line to Molecular Distraction to help answer 1Mmirg's concerns: "Atom cannot take any turns while he is on the chosen Hero's card."
