-40 DAMAGE PTS.

Apollo’s Solar Energy Absorption In 30 Years = 9.9930931e+15 J = 2379307.88095 Ton of TNT.
-(50 DAMAGE PTS * 13444637.5578 J * 1 Ton of TNT)/(10^-8 s * 4.2*10^9 J) = -12203480.3962 ​PTS * Ton of TNT/s.
Apollo’s Durability = (12203480.3962 PTS * Ton of TNT/s)/(2379307.88095 Ton of TNT/s) = -5.1290043184 PTS/s.
Durability = 7 – 5.1290043184 = 1.88 PTS/s = BUILDING.

Captain Atom’s Re-Entry = 4459000000 J = 1.06166666667 Ton of TNT.
-(4 DAMAGE PTS * 2*10^12 J * 1 Ton of TNT)/(300 s * 4.2*10^9 J) = 6.34920634921 PTS * Ton of TNT/s.
Captain Atom’s Durability = (6.34920634921 PTS * Ton of TNT/s)/(1.06166666667 Ton of TNT) = 5.98041414366 PTS.

CAPTAIN ATOM'S FIRST APPEARANCE

Space Adventures (1960) #33, titled “Introducing Captain Adam” marks the first appearance of Captain Atom in DC continuity. The issue tells the origin story of Captain Atom: Allen Adam’s body was vaporized after he was launched in an experimental rocket. However, he survived and was able to re-form his body by using the power of the atom. Donning a special body suit to protect from radiation, he became Captain Atom.

The comic was written by Joe Gill and penciled by Steve Ditko.
