Months after Dr. Jeff Palmer's operation to re-map the effects of Kryptonite on Greg Arkin's brain, Greg Arkin finally awoke from his coma. He found that his insect-like powers were gone, and that he had new, amazing powers.

Greg's powers included invulnerability due to metallic skin, manipulation of quantum field energy for superhuman strength, speed and endurance, flight, durability, time-travel, energy blasts, techno-interface, minor atomic transmutation, and huge energy absorption. The press dubbed him 'Captain Atom'.

Phoenix' by Carmen Colombo (www.wowzone.com)
Out of my ashes
will rise a new phoenix.

A soaring being
returning from death
proving once again
that life is eternal.

I live forever
because the spirit
never dies.

I will return
in another body
in another time,
but it is me.

The me who is me now
will always be.

As long as I live,
I learn.
And I live
