"AAYEE! I Hope I Can Hold Onto It!"
One of the original atomic powered superheroes! Nukla, the enemy of evil, can fire energy beams which create nuclear explosions when they hit their targets, but he is only able to do this in a dematerialized state. Both he and his plane can be rendered immaterial in this manner, making them virtually impossible to harm. Nukla can also use his powers to swiftly heal from injuries. His powers have limits however, and he can temporarily use up his supply of nuclear energy, leaving himself a normal human again until he has time to recover.

Here's a gem I came across. Not sure if there was to be a fifth issue or not, but it's either that or a sweet commission piece.
It was great to have Nukla in a period of time Captain Atom was missing in action. Maybe it wasn't the best, but it worked for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was sorry to see him go.
