These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Atom
Dork Age: For a short while in the 1990s, Ray was de-aged to a teenager and was placed in charge of a new incarnation of the Teen Titans. Fans reacted poorly, the Titans series was quickly cancelled, and Ray's de-aging was quietly undone.
Values Dissonance: The degree to which Al Pratt was bullied about his short stature in The Golden Age of Comic Books is a little less understandable these days. Inverted in The Silver Age of Comic Books, where Jean Loring's refusal to marry Ray Palmer until she'd gotten a good start on her career was intended to be an unusual romantic obstacle at the time of publication but makes her a rather normal career woman in today's terms. (Of course, the stated reason Jean wants to have a career first is because she anticipates that she'll quit to Stay in the Kitchen once she's actually married.)
The Woobie: Palmer, after all the crap they've put him through in recent years.
Ryan Choi usurped Palmer's Woobie status after he was dragged through an entire issue of being murdered by a group of C-List villains led by Deathstroke all to show how dangerous they were, and then later having his body delivered to Dwarfstar in a matchbox.
