Blake, Atom. As a young boy Atom Blake is subjected to an experiment. He is exposed to the rays of a metal which has "the atoms from all elements" fused inside it. This experiment gives super strength and super intelligence. Further, his father also gives Blake a ring inside of which is a mathematical formula which when recited by a man “in need or by evil oppressed” will grant the reciter’s wish, no matter how unusual or extreme. But his parents disappear, and Blake is raised by his aunt and uncle unaware of his heritage. When he discovers it, and his superhuman abilities, he uses them to fight evil, including a Mad Scientist, the robotic Black Monster, and millionaire businessman Godfrey Calkins, who is developing interplanetary suspended animation and tests it on survivors of a train crash he arranges. Blake is assisted by his chum Dusty.
