Powers and Abilities

Powers

Microscopic Stability: For some reason, Ray's physiology allows him to not explode when he is miniaturized unlike other living things which explode after a short time of being miniaturized.

Size Alteration Able to shrink his body to varying degrees (including the subatomic level). As the Atom, Ray can assume any size from his normal six-foot stature down to sub-microscopic, although he generally deems a height of six inches as most functional.

  • Mass/Density Alteration: Able to instantly alter his molecular density to whatever degree he desires. Ray can also assume any weight at any height — up to his full 180 pounds. It has never been explained where his mass goes when he discards it to make himself lighter.
  • Flight: at a low setting, he has been able to glide on air currents
  • Superhuman Strength: at a high setting, he has been able to handle and/or strike objects with the equivalent strength of his normal size and build.
  • Phone Line Travel: A favorite travel method Ray had, was to call some location on the telephone; when the intended phone answered, he could shrink down enough to literally travel through the phone lines in seconds to emerge out of the answering phone.

Abilities

Judo: Ray Palmer often finds himself in situation where physical violence become necessary. As such, he has developed a proficiency in the martial arts form known as Judo.

Physics: Dr. Palmer has a Ph.D. in physics and was a full professor at Ivy University.

Master Swordsman: The Atom used a long sword as a weapon while living among the Katarthans, gaining considerable skill in its use.

Strength level

Unknown.

Weaknesses

  • Cell Phone Travel: Although Ray can travel through phone lines he can't travel through cell phones. He needs a physical wire to travel through. Cell phone's use specific electrical impulses that allow it to beam from phone to satellite which is impossible for him to follow.

Transportation: None known.
