Atom Eve goes by the name Samantha Eve Wilkins, she was created years ago in an experiment to mutate an unborn child and create a weapon for the government. This experiment was funded by a US government branch and were termed as Super Human Development and research branch. During her birth, her powers would go out of control, many a times emitting pink energy through her mother’s eyes. Her mother could not survive the birth process.
The scientist in charge, Erias Brandyworth, her biological father was ashamed of what he had done that when Steven Erickson arrived at the hospital to retrieve her and use her as a weapon, Brandyworth faked Samantha’s death by using the miscarried foetus of Betsy Wilkins and Adam Wilkins, not allowing Erickson to fulfil his mission, and making Betsy and Adam Wilkins become her new adoptive parents. Brandyworth would cautiously check upon Samantha time to time, but made sure no one was aware of the same.
While in school she was considered a science prodigy as she knew everything about science before anyone could teach her, this acted as an early manifestation of her powers. However, she was only good at science and no other academics that led her to get kicked out of regular and special schools alike.
As she was on the verge of becoming a hero, she was warned multiple times by Brandyworth, to not use her powers, for they could eventually lead to her downfall and that her powers could make her a living atom bomb. She defied his warning, on realizing that she has the powers that can change the world and goes on to join the Teen Team, a group of super heroes essential to the storyline of Invincible.
Talking about her powers, Atom Eve can restructure matter with a thought. If she knows how something is made up she can change it into something else. She was created with a great understanding of chemistry and the molecular structure of things and an innate knowledge of laws of science, her abilities can only be limited by her own imagination. She can change living and non-living matter, make atoms obey her will, create new atoms and form complex forms of life out of non-living matter, fly, create force-fields and shape energy to make any object she can visualize.
Eve can augment normally unhealthy food such as cakes and other sweets into nutritious foods as well as re-arrange the environment. A downside of her ability is that any atom that goes unused is absorbed into her body, which is later removed as waste.
However, before becoming a part of Team Teen, Atom Eve used to fight crimes on her own. This one time she arrives at scene to witness four children holding people hostage. One of them attempts to touch Eve, they continue the battle with the four having advantage.
Eve manages to get away until one of them catches her. The four continue resume their attack until she gets away, and it is revealed that they had taken Brandyworth hostage. This battle continues only to reveal that Eve’s powers don’t work on living matter. And if that would have been the case, she would omnipotent making her God. Thus, mental blocks were installed.
Soon, the four are taken control of and Eve is taken into custody by Erickson, the man who wanted her to be a weapon for the US government ever since she was born. Erickson shoots Brandyworth dead and reveals that Eve’s biological mother is alive and she was the one to give birth to the four she met earlier that day. Erickson goes on to kill her mother, enraging Eve.
This emotional stress helps Eve override her mental blocks and use her power to erase the memories Erickson. Later, when she arrives home, she uses her powers to change the family picture in her room, revealing she misses them.
After she augments her memories, she goes on to live a semi-normal life juggling between, being a teenager and a superhero. She gets romantically involved with Rex-splode, a fellow member of Team Teen before eventually calling it quits on the account of Rex cheating on her with Dupli-Kate, another member of Team teen.
She eventually meets Invincible in a very typical manner, how one superhero meets another, while fighting crime, in this case the Mauler Twins. However, the very next day its revealed that she attends the same school as Mark Greyson, Invincible. This marks the beginning of their friendship that eventually buds into a relationship.
