-24 DAMAGE PTS.

Energy of a 6.3 MegaTon Nuke = 6300000 Ton of TNT.
-(24 DAMAGE PTS * 2.646e+16 J * 1 s * 1 Ton of TNT)/(10 s * 4.2*10^9 J) = -15120000 ​PTS * Ton of TNT.
Captain Atom’s Durability = (-15120000 ​PTS * Ton of TNT)/(6300000 Ton of TNT) = -2.4 PTS.
Durability = 3 – 2.4 = 0.6 PTS = PEAK HUMAN.
