Captain Atom #11

What happens when a near omnipotent being gives into his own desires and greatest wish to be human again? The latest issue of Captain Atom shows us the unforeseen consequences when Captain Atom puts his consciousness in a human form to reconnect with humanity in general, and with Renita specifically.

Once again writer J.T. Krul takes an intriguing idea, Nathaniel Atom re-experiencing life as a "normal" man, and turns the story on its side by showing us that while most of Nate's consciousness is walking around with Renita, his comatose form is also trying to make the wishes of those closest to him come true as well - whether that be the return of a dead relative, a collection of toys from childhood, or granting Dr. Megala's greatest wish.

However, it appears these unconcious gifts might actually be far more dangerous than the chance the human version of Nate gets into with Renita as the two finally give into their feelings for each other. Worth a look.
