So, I’ve been reading the 1987 Captain Atom comics. Looking into the encyclopedia I found there is no information on the character.
So over to Wikipedia…I notice two distinct 1st appearances. One is from Charlton Comics (Allen) version. Another is the DC (Nathaniel) version.
A friend has a CGC copy of DC’s issue 1 from 87. It doesn’t claim to be a first appearance. Just says “new origin” and “first DC appearance”. The same as when The Question and Blue Beetle came over.
Except Captain Atom isn’t the same character this time. He was altered while BB and Question ported over to DC mostly unchanged.
So, my question is shouldn’t Captain Atom 1 (1987) at least be considered 1st appearance of Nathaniel Adam?
