Ray Palmer was a physicist who found a meteor made of "white dwarf star matter" that he fashioned into a lens capable of shrinking and expanding objects although the latter process would cause said objects to explode.After getting trapped in a cave with his girlfriend Jean Loring and a group of students, Ray uses the lens to shrink himself to create an escape route knowing full well he will die in the process of regaining normal size.Much to his shock, he does not explode, which he attributes to a unique energy inside his body (eventually this was retconned into Ray having discovered and incorporated a "compression matrix" into his costume that allowed him to change size at will, in order to explain the later several instances of people using his costume and powers with no problems).Ray incorporates the lens in a costume that allows him to shrink (all the way to subatomic size! Despite these unlikely powers he became a successful hero and joined the Justice League.He starred in his own series for 25 issues (September, 2006-September, 2008).He was then unceremoniously killed off, to the chagrin of his fans (and Gail Simone).

He subsequently got a one-shot written by Steve Orlando, , explaining how he had become Palmer's assistant and helped him in his adventures as the Atom before he took up the mantle himself, as a prelude to joining the Orlando-written Justice League of America.He was a founding member of the Justice Society, appearing in most of its adventures between 1940 and to 1951.He got a second series of his own in the back pages of ", lasting from issues #80 to #104 (February, 1947-February, 1949).The second Atom was introduced during the The Silver Age of Comic Books and had nothing in common with the first other than the name.He first appeared in " #34 (September, 1961), created by Gardner Fox and Gil Kane.
