When the teaser for DC’s Trinity War came out last spring there was speculation that the Atom shown in the double page spread was not Ryan Choi but a female character.
Choi had been all but confirmed as returning to life in new 52 during SDCC 2011 by Jim Lee and by his appearance on a promotional glass. Given the highly controversial way that Choi, one of the few Asian superheroes at DC was killed, the announcement was seen as a positive (you can read why I thought so here).
Today on the cover revealed for the May issue of Justice League that the Atom is indeed a woman.
While I’m always happy to see more female characters in DC, I am very disappointed that DC did not move forward on reviving Ryan Choi.
