Brandon Routh has finally transformed into Atom, in a new promotional picture from The CW series “Arrow,” which was unveiled Tuesday.

The “Superman Returns” actor joined the cast of the superhero series in July, but this is a first look at his character Ray Palmer’s complete transformation into the DC Comics superhero, Atom.

His character is a scientist and inventor who took over Queen Consolidated on “Arrow,” making him a major force in the lives Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). In the DC Comics universe, Palmer is the alter-ego of The Atom, a superhero who changes his size at will.

Ray is expected to finally strap on the Atom armor on Episode 15, “Nanda parbat,” which airs Feb. 25.
