Background

Dr. Raymond Carson "Ray" Palmer (born 1981), knighted Sir Raymond of the Palms, Defender of Camelot by Queen Guinevere in 507, is a businessman and the former CEO of Palmer Technologies, previously known as Queen Consolidated. He is the son of David and Sandy Palmer and younger brother of Sydney Palmer, who in at least one version of the future is considered to be the father of the robotics industry. Ray is the husband of Nora Darhk, the ex-fiancé of Kendra Saunders and the late Anna Loring, the ex-boyfriend/good friend of Felicity Smoak, the best friend of Nate Heywood, and a good friend of Cisco RamonSara LanceAmaya Jiwe, Zari Tarazi, and the late Martin Stein.

Having designed a powerful exosuit, Ray began acting as a vigilante in Star City, calling himself The Atom. While testing out a new function of his exosuit, Ray accidentally caused an explosion which shrunk him to a miniature size; stuck in this state and unable to call for help, he was presumed dead. After six months, Ray managed to contact Felicity but was captured by Damien Darhk for his technology. However, thanks to the efforts of Team Arrow, Ray was rescued and would continue to aid them in their fight against H.I.V.E..

In early 2016, Ray was recruited by time-traveler Rip Hunter into the Legends on a mission to take down Vandal Savage. After Ray's A.T.O.M. suit was destroyed during a mission in Feudal Japan, Mick Rory gave him the Cold gun. He nicknamed himself Colonel Cold, using both Leonard Snart's weaponry and goggles. After getting a new source of dwarf star alloy, Ray went back to his Atom identity

Ray was possessed by a powerful demon, Neron, after accidentally interfering in Nora and John Constantine's efforts to subdue the demon until Neron killed Nate (voiding the deal he made: sparing Nate in exchange for control of his body), allowing John to kill Neron and grant Ray his body back.

Post-Crisis, Ray helped the Legends fight the Encores such as Damien Darhk, who gave his blessing for Ray to marry Nora. After getting married, Ray and Nora chose to leave the Legends and focus on Nora's job as a Fairy Godmother.
