Pretty cool match-up but I think Magneto takes it. Prep does more for Mags because he is smarter and a better tactician. Atom might have the ability to manipulate a wider variety of energies but Mags is much more skilled an experienced. I think Atom will have a very hard time penetrating Mags' shields since they are practically unpenetrable and have withheld attacks more powerful than what Atom can generate.

The two things that really hurt Atom are that 1) his outer "skin" or "shell" is made a metal which is very unfortunate for Atom and 2) he is still a human under that metal and Mags can manipulate the iron in his blood and brain. Damage to Atom's metal skin pretty much ends the fight for him an Mags can mess with that using his powers or he can KO him.

Matter of fact, magnetism has worked against Atom before:

Quote:
Along with the rest of the Wildstorm Universe, Priscilla becomes involved in the battle with Captain Atom and during the battle she displays new magnetic powers and uses them to control his body. However after she attempts to use her telepathy on him, he is able to connect her to the minds of every source of knowledge, causing her to pass out from the overload.

Mags can rip people apart from the iron in their blood using only a tiny fraction of his power.

Mags owning Apoc by essentially scrambling his mind.

Theoretically, Atom is more powerful but Mags has a huge skill advantage. Mags has consistently shown feats on a grand scale and the prep gives him a tactical advantage.

atom has prep as well. you can't really claim mags has a huge advantage in terms of brains since atom is pretty smart himself and probably a better tactician.

about him being human and mag's being able to control his iron, he doesn't really have any blood in his body. he's basically energy contained in a suit. and as for his steel 'skin', it shouldn't matter because he he has matter manipulation powers, he can turn it into other things magneto can't control

Quote:
- Matter Manipulation - He has shown to manipulate cohesive force to make 'protomatter.' On occasion, he has shown to transmute solid objects, akin to Firestorm, having transmuted Green Arrow's arrows into butterflies and a firearm into a toy spaceship. He used his ability to affect matter on an atomic scale to turn Maul and Engineer back into their human forms. Depending on the situation, it appears as if this ability is used on instinct or with some level of concentration. At one point, he was able to create a universe within the Quantum Field. In the new 52 he was able to turn two fighter jets into feathers.

aside from that, he's energy absorption and control will be able to contain mag's control over magnetism. he can also screw up mags forcefield long enough to blast him to pieces

Quote:
- Energy Projection and Manipulation - He is able to emit blasts of any type of quantum-based energy from any part of his body at once, but normally prefers using his hands for ease of aim. He is able to control the magnitude and wavelength of his energy blasts at will. He can stun his opponents with his blasts at the lowest setting. But, at higher settings, he's shown to blow up aircraft (ranging from fighter jets to large spaceships, such as Kobra's Ark), tanks, stagger powerful super-powered beings, incinerate a human being down to their bones or completely vaporize them, detonate atomic explosions, and the list goes on. At one point, the force from high-powered blasts have started earthquakes (while Atom was fighting another being underground). With the Quantum Field, he is able to generate and manipulate forces along the Unified Field (fundamental forces). In the same way, he learned to access weak force energy, manipulate gravitational forces, and electromagnetism (has generated pure light from his body, and manipulated electromagnetism to shut of the Ray's powers with a simple blast of energy). The Quantum Field also grants his Quantum blasts with the effect of intense heat, and he has shown to be able to melt down dense metallic substances and heat things up with what he likes to call 'Quantum heat.' At one point, he applied his energy manipulation to manipulate the electric impulses in one's brain, in order to put them to sleep. Captain Atom is also able to generate energy shields (strong enough to stop things as powerful as entropy) around himself, and others. He was once able to transmute the force of an energy blast, as well.

Quote:
- Energy Absorption - Extreme energy absorption that's second to none in the DC Universe. With proper control, concentration, and regulation of his energy absorption rate, he is capable of absorb infinite amounts of energy to avoid quantum jumping through time. There is almost no form of energy that Captain Atom is unable to absorb. In the new 52 he absorbed a Nuclear Bomb.


that along with superman-class strength, near lightspeed movements, and invulnerability will be more than enough to beat mags.

Comicvine is heavily biased towards DC characters, though.
