Roll on 3d6; a 7 or less roll results in a Containment Suit Rupture. Add 1 to the chance to trigger a Rupture for each Body done in excess of defenses. In addition, any time the Captain's Body is reduced to 0 or below, a Containment Suit Rupture is automatically triggered. 12 seconds/segments after a Rupture is triggered, the explosion occurs. (Captain Atom will, naturally, do what he can to reduce the collateral damage from a Containment Suit Rupture, usually flying at maximum speed up and away to isolate himself as much as possible. Of course, if he's unconscious...) After the explosion, the entire area covered by the explosion is considered a high radiation zone. After the explosion, Captain Atom will be a disembodied energy being who cannot affect the world in any way although he can perceive it and move through it (use his Nuclear Propulsion power to define this). In this disembodied form the Captain cannot be seen by normal senses and can only be affected by things which can affect nuclear radiation. Unless the Captain's energy is collected and put into another containment suit within 24 hours, he will die: His energy will dissipate and can never again be collected. The longer Captain Atom is in this disembodied state, the longer it will take to collect his energies and pump them into a new containment suit. Mental attacks will not trigger a Containment Suit rupture.] [1]
