Atom joins JLA; bowling cover (9/62)
Atom joins JLA; bowling cover (9/62)Much like the Golden Age Atom was a member of the JSA, in issue #14 of JLA, the rebooted Silver Age Atom joins the hero team after a bit of a mystery is unraveled by the superteam. It seems when the League is considering a new hero to enlist to the group, they all vote for the Atom, but none of them seem to remember who exactly that is, after encountering the miniature hero, who has also forgotten his identity, everyone comes to their senses and hones in on their antagonist, one Mister Memory, who has even roped Batman into the confusion and chaos. And, yes, dear reader, the cover does not lie, there is a sinister bowling pin plot woven into this tale as well. But fear not, all is set right by the comic’s conclusion, and the Atom ends up joining forces with the JLA, and peace once again reigns over the land, at least until the next issue.

Sekowsky's long career began in the early 40s for Timely Comics drawing the adventures of Captain America, and Sub-Mariner among others in titles such as All Winners Comics, Daring Comics, Marvel Mystery Comics, and Young Allies Comics.
