Those of us old enough to remember when the first look at Brandon Routh as Superman debuted online will remember that it was something of a big deal -- and that not everybody loved it.
While The CW have made some changed from the comic book source material to craft at "A.T.O.M. Exosuit," it's likely safe to say there will be less outright mockery of the final product, which you can see below.
Ray Palmer, played by Routh in the hit CW series Arrow, will don the suit for the first time in the upcoming, fifteenth episode of the show, titled "Nanda Parbat."
The character will also appear in the eighteenth episode of The Flash, titled "All-Star Team-Up," which sees the Bug-Eyed Bandit, an Atom villain from the comics, as one of the threats. The episode synopsis says that he'd been struggling to perfect his suit and will seek help from Cisco Ramon at S.T.A.R. Labs, so it now appears even more likely the characters will literally team-up in costume.
