The Atomic represents the best things of the Jewish State, Israel. Immediately following the end of World War II, he made aliyah. Before the War, The Atomic (Arthur HaLevi) went on a mapping expedition in the Grand Canyon with a group of college students.
Curious about a humming sound he heard, Arthur split from the group to investigate. Finding an opening in the wall of the Canyon, he crawled inside, searching for the sound. He was surprised that the passage led to an ancient broken room.
A partially broken door hung from its hinges. Navigating the wreckage, Arthur continued into a maze of ancient rooms. Many of the rooms were filled with what Arthur could only imagine being the remnants of an ancient advanced culture.
He finally discovered the origin of the humming sound in a small room. A device with a cylindrical center surrounded by a diamond-like structure sat on a pedestal with broken equipment at its base. Noticing a couple of cracks on the object, Arthur approached it.
After touching the Alien object, Arthur felt sick and fainted. When he woke, he found himself floating in a transparent pod containing a light bluish liquid. The pod opened, and Arthur spilled out. Near him, he found an orbed-shape device.
Once activated, it produced clean clothing. Arthur left the cave to discover he had gone missing several weeks prior. The school and his family thought he was dead.
Discovering he now had the atomic power coursing through his veins, Arthur HaLevi became one of the early and most well-known American Superheroes, The Atomic!
When America entered World War II, the Atomic led an army of super-powered heroes to fight the Axis powers. Towards the end of the war details of the holocaust were revealed.
Realizing how much his people, and the soon to form the State of Israel, needed his strength. Arthur left America. He flew to Israel and became a fighter and protector of Israel along with other powered and non-powered heroes.
For over seventy years, The Atomic has continued to serve as a protector of Israel. He made teshuva and eventually became the Rosh Yeshivah of a Yeshivah in the Old City of Jerusalem, Yeshivah Torah M'Tzion.
Today, he serves on the Rabbinic Council for Superpowers המועצה הרבנית למעצמות HaMoatzah HaRabanit L'Matzemot. The Atomic's powers are of an atomic origin. However, when he uses his powers, he doesn't leak radiation. The energy he absorbed gave him super-strength, flight, speed, invulnerability, super-senses, non-radioactive atomic blasts, immunity to most forms of radiation, and energy clone
