The strength of this series is the concept of a familiar hero in a world that will be familiar to (some) readers but is not known to the hero himself. Its a good idea, and its been done well with Majestic coming to DC and, more recently, Superman and Batman visiting the Elseworlds of Batman Beyond and Mark Millars Red Son. If, however, the entire miniseries is going to be Captain Atom fighting a series of Wildstorms elite over mistaken identity, the novelty of the book will wear off well before the final, ninth issue hits shelves. Frankly, I dont expect thats what this series will be about; Pfeifer is a good enough writer to know better. Its only a shame we couldnt see more in the way of mysterious developments and less of two muscleheads pounding it out in the premiere. Read Full Review
