If we are claiming Atom is a being of pure energy like in new 52 then all his past feats go out the window because he doesnt really know how to use his power right now. You cant have it both ways. Classic Atom is still flesh and blood which means Mags can use that to his advantage.

Also, Atom has been effected by magnetism before so Magneto will be able to beat him. His power was even amped then and he was still affected by magnetism from a being far less powerful than Mags.

you forgot to mention that he was also able to withstand the magnetism-based attack back then. also, how exactly does mags defend against atom's multiple ways to attack? atom can destroy planets and create blackholes/universes if he wants to

and since atom has prep, he's not going to get himself into the same situation where magnetism was used against him when he went into the wildstorm universe. he can use his various powers to prevent it...like speed blitzing or transmuting himself/his opponent from the get go

and he has never bled before..even the old captain atom. he doesn't have blood like normal humans in his system

Voodoo lost because her telepathic attack backfired not because Atom overcame the magnetism. And since when does he not have blood? He is covered in metal which is why we never see his human appearance but he is still human under there.

I have a clear cut choice in the atom/mags debate but I'll be interested to see what the judges say.

his dilustel skin is the only thing holding his body intact after his transformation, what makes you thing he's still flesh and blood inside? besides, you still haven't answered how mags is going to defend against atom's attacks, his forcefield can be manipulated/absorbed by atom as well

btw, who are the judges again?

Prep means Mags' shields will be up before the fight so speed blitzing and whatnot will not beat him. His shields have withstood everything from Galactus to Thor. Also, Atom isn't going to out manipulate Magneto in terms of taking out his shields. Magneto can draw from a wide range of energies and is way more skilled with the use of his powers. No way Atom simply takes his shields down.

I prob need to stop arguing tho since I'm at work and have stuff to do lol. I don't really have any more to add and I'm ok for judges to make a choice.

One more thing lol, the New 52 Atom is held together by his skin because his body's atoms are constantly splitting and reforming, which is where he gets the massive amounts of energy he has. The normal Atom before the DC reboot was an army officer who bonded with the Dilustel so that the metal covered his body, which means that he is still human underneath the metal and is vulnerable to Mags' attacks. At least that's how I see it. If Atom gets his New 52 form, then I dont see how he would get his past feats in this competition because:

Quote:
In the new reality, Nathaniel Adam has only been Captain Atom for a few months and is still exploring his abilities, constantly learning new facets to them such as his ability to perceive wireless transmissions from cell phones and computers

MagicC: Captain Atom (prep) Vs. Jailblazers: Magneto (prep); i went about matchup forever, i'm giving Atom the edge just because of the versatility. Both are prepped, so that's about a wash. and because of that, i figure that Atom knows Magneto is going to manipulate any metal, and he's going to counteract that with his own energy manipulation.
El Kabong: Emma Frost (prep) Vs. Raiderfan: Lord Helspont: this would be more fair if this was the Phoenix 5 Frost...
my picks
