Atom Man was the 1st place winner in Super Action Pocketkomiks' Original Super-Hero Drawing Contest. Unveiled in Super Action #26 (February 12, 1986), the character was created by Ramon G. Gimena of Bacolod Irosin, Sorsogon.
As part of the prize, Atom Man was made into an 8-page story which appeared in Super Action #32 (March 26, 1986), written by Edwin Samonte and illustrated by Manny Pantaleon.
The son of a brilliant scientist, Ram explores his late father's old basement laboratory. There, he finds his father's greatest creation: a "wonder pill" containing the elements of atomic energy.
Upon swallowing the pill, Ram becomes imbued with superhuman abilities. He also finds a specially-made costume which he wears to become the atomic-powered superhero, Atom Man.
