So season 4 kicked off on a high note ,First Episode as Oliver and Felicity return to the new all improved Star City We see a signboard on the way in
This strikes me as odd ,since Ray Palmer is set to feature in CW's new 'Legends of Tomorrow'
For those who haven't seen the trailer of Legends of Tomorrow kindly check it out below,It's awesome!
So Ray Palmer is brought back from the dead just like Sarah Lance?Big Deal!!
I know what's running in everyone's mind ,
'We have a lazarus pit ,so he probably would come back using that, so what's the point of this article?'
It may seem odd to all but i believe we Ray Palmer is not dead at all,
Why would I say Such a thing?
Atom's Actual Abilities according to Comics are stated as
Ability to shrink and grow his body and other objects to varying degrees (including the subatomic level) while manipulating his weight to his advantage
Maintains strength of normal size in shrunken state
As much as i love CW's Iron Man-Atom suit but that's not his primary ability we would like to see on screen
At 3:36 in the CW Trailer we notice Ray decides to shrink down to prove to Victor Garber(Firestorm(or well Half of him)) He can shrink down to a tiny 'ATOM'(See what i did there?)
We never Actually had a Clip of Ray's Funeral now did we?Just one picture of the explosion
If anyone read the Synopsis for Ray's Adventure on the Arrow Wiki,We see a line written at the end of his story line as:
The next morning, Ray implants his nanotech into his suit, while testing out a new discovery in its technology, which would allow it to miniaturize selected targets and reduce the scale of the suit itself. This causes the CEO's office of Palmer Technologies to explode, leaving Ray dead.
I know they said Ray Dead,But more on that later
The Major point to take out from this line would be
Ray implants his nanotech into his suit, while testing out a new discovery in its technology, which would allow it to miniaturize selected targets and reduce the scale of the suit itself
His Actual Comic Book Abilities!
Ray never died ,He simply miniaturized himself !
I know it's Far Fetched but I think CW would prefer to stop bringing people back through the Lazarus Pit,We've seen Thea return already,And Sarah too,We will probably see a few more returns through the Pit,
But as far as the Atom is concerned He's simply Small!
As we go further into Season 4 of arrow hopefully we see more hints to bring out Ray's Atomic Life and what he's been upto for 6 months.
