To create hype for the Atom’s appearance in Legends of Tomorrow season 3 premiere next week, NeatherRealm Studios revealed the first gameplay teaser for the shrinking character during CW’s Chasing the Cup: Injustice 2 tournament. True to his abilities in the comics, Injustice 2’s version of the Atom can shrink and grow in size to pummel opponents.
The Atom is part of the Injustice 2 Fighter Pack 3 lineup, so we can expect to get our hands on the character after Fighter Pack 2’s Hellboy becomes available. Weirdly enough, NeatherRealm might have revealed The Atom a bit too early, considering Hellboy has yet to receive a gameplay trailer. To ease fan concerns, Ed Boon announced on Twitter that both Hellboy and The Atom will receive a full-length gameplay trailer soon. “We’ve still got amazing full Hellboy (fighter pack 2) and ATOM (fighter pack 3) game-play trailers coming soon!! Stay tuned!”
Physics prodigy Ryan Choi will don the suit of the Atom in Injustice 2. Here’s a short description shared by Warner Bros: “Physics prodigy Ryan Choi took on the mantle of the Atom when his mentor — and original Atom —Ray Palmer mysteriously disappeared. Now armed with quantum shrinking technology, Ryan will use the subatomic power of the quantum bio-belt to seek out his lost friend and further the fight for justice.”
With the Atom now confirmed for Fighter Pack 3, only two characters remain unannounced to complete Injustice 2’s full roster.
