Atom Pre-Release Discussion Thread

Beware my power.
I think you're right on this, it looks like that at around 0:45 in the trailer when he is fighting joker.
Yeah I slowed it down 25% and in the recovery animation he looks incapacitated after he returns to full size. When you think it does make sense in terms of being true to the comics.

Yeah he looks like he's holding onto his belt or something like that.
 
@16 Bit is on blast for saying Atom is floating by INcreasing his density. Science, man))) But seriously - amazing stream! Atom seems to have sooo many tools. I was surprised about so much stuff being not gear related. Just wish they gave Brainiac some of those "breaking the laws of physics" smart specials. Cause you know that 12th level intellect is kind of fighting like a neanderthal compared to the stuff simple humans have in this game)

Are you not entertained!?
Too bad they didn't keep his trait properties from the trailer, at least for some while after release to see how it would work out. Now it seems useless against mids.

Mr. Righteous
Apparently, after looking at the Atom stream, he's exactly what id thought he be. Having such incredible keep away tools, but low damage output was expected. His vile attacks look REALLY interesting, especially how you can combined them for different effects. And his throw attack plays a crucial role in his offense which is PERFECT because i like using throws alot! He's gonna be the reason why i really get back into this game and im here for it! :)

I'm calling it now, advancing blue science + teleport is gonna be sick. His science stuff looks fantastic, very creative.

This character is sick, there's gonna be ton to lab with him.

His trait is like he's moving around with an excellent crouching hitbox.

1000% his normal stomp will be nerfed..

I think they didn't mean to make it plus 8 on block.

To put it in perspective. There is no other special move in the game as plus.. not even mb.. maybe mb up batarang

They weren't kidding when they said his damage is low. I'm struggling to get over 300 on supes

What is the start up on the stomp? And what is the start up on the gun?

Note that this is pre release and could change.

112~BF1 MB, (Step forward)B3, JI3, F212~BF2 (318)

B3, JI3, F21, F212~BF2(349)

Setups and pressure using BF2 MB:

B3, JI3, F21, F212~BF2 MB, 11~Science

- Leaves the opponent standing in front of you with an experiment under them and is only slightly minus, 11 by its self is +23.

B3, JI3, F21, F212~BF2 MB, 112~DB2

- Low ground pound at the end of 112 on hit leaves a gap only wide enough for a backdash or maybe a well timed Super. Ground pound is currently +7 on block and you can MB for unblockable so this should be an interesting pressure tool.

- It also seems like you can get some cross up JI3 shenanigans after a BF2 MB, you can also combo with it.

HE'S STILL TINY IN BETWEEN ROUNDS IF YOU USE HIS CHARACTER POWER AND HIS VOICE GOES ALL HIGH PITCHED.

WAS THIS IN THE STREAM OR HAVE I BEEN BETRAYED
