CBR Review: Captain Atom #1

I recently reviewed Captain Atom #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "At this point, if all that’s separating the character from any other random superhero is his powers, there’s a problem. If the end of the issue is any indication, this could be the first step in the title becoming something different, but that doesn’t excuse beginning in such a broad, mediocre fashion. If the plan is to wind up at some different, new, exciting place, why not start there? This is meant to be the place to grab someone checking out the first issue and a vague sense that maybe it will become something more than just another superhero comic in a few issues isn’t a strong selling point."
