The Mighty Atom's Hair

“Strongmen” are so named based on the strength of their muscles, or at least that’s how it is in most cases. The Mighty Atom Joseph Greenstein was certainly quite strong from a muscular standpoint but he also had unusually strong hair. With the aid of a strong comb, The Mighty Atom could pull vehicles with his hair, and, as shown above, even use it to bend steel bars.
