The Atomic Shield is a unique item fashioned from the pieces and core of the original Atomic Hammer used by Thunderstrike. A blend of Atlantean science with advanced metallurgy from Matumaini, the shield is a marvel of modern science.
When active, the shield expands out from a bracer to form a concave disc shield 30 inches ( 76 cm ) across. The outer surface of the shield, when deployed, has a light ocean-green tint to the microscales. In the center is the crest of the ruling family of Atlantean, the ‘A’.
If not in use, the shield retracts into a gauntlet worn on the user’s right or left wrist. Deploying the shield takes an Automatic Action for that Phase.
