Relatively unfamiliar stateside, the mysterious hero known as Atomic-Ra made a name for himself in Europe, Africa and throughout the Middle East.  He became active in the mid-1990s gaining fame for saving the Sphinx and several pyramids in Egypt from Donarrian weapon seekers scouring the Saharan sands.  He was offered and accepted a post with the newly global Constellation agency.

Atomic-Ra boasts solar powers in the form of energy claws capable of slicing through nearly anything, including the armored plating of Danaian Neotitans, and devastating solar blasts.  The blasts leave him weakened as he recharges in our sunlight.  It appears that Atomic-Ra’s full body armor also serves as a solar collector constantly recharging the hero.  His powers let him take to the skies to watch over the areas in his charge, as dictated by his superiors in the Constellations.

Upon rescue by the Man of the Moon, Atomic-Ra revealed the plans of the invaders.  Looking into the night sky with inhuman sight, the Man of the Moon grimaced and, with a contingency of Secret Soldiers, took to the air and rocketed to the moon.  The group of heroes arrived just in time to meet the lunar landing of…
