"I felt like the New 52 version, rightly or wrongly, was perceived by some people as being too Dr. Manhattan-ish, for lack of a better word. Of course, the irony is that Alan Moore's Dr. Manhattan was his riff on the Charlton Captain Atom. So the characters are inextricably linked. But that said, I think Greg [Weisman] and I both prefer our version from the '80s to some of the things that followed." - Cary Bates

"We felt like the character of Eiling has gotten away from who he was in the '80s, who was this master manipulator. We thought of him as Captain Kirk gone bad. Instead, I feel like he's become this blustering, angry general determined to save the country at all cost. So he'd become more of a Thunderbolt Ross kind of character. And I actually like Thunderbolt Ross in the Hulk, but it wasn't ever who Eiling was. So this allowed us to nuance Eiling back to the kind of character he was." - Greg Weisman

"Back in the '80s, most people don't know this, but the '80s Captain Atom was originally intended to just be a miniseries. They weren't sure about it — they were bringing back some Charlton characters. But sure enough, it got enough of a following that it was ongoing for what? Fifty? Sixty issues? So hopefully it will repeat itself." - Cary Bates

"What Dan DiDio said he was looking for was a way to get the character back to what he called the core concepts of what Greg [Weisman] and I did in the '80s. But it had the stipulation that the starting point had to be the New 52 version of the character." - Cary Bates

"I don't know how politic it is for me to sort of go off on stuff that was done after Cary [Bates] and I left the book, but we were happy to bring him back to the core personality and the core aspects of the character that had made it fun for us, and we think fun for readers way back in those dark ages of the '80s." - Greg Weisman

From Newsarama, in the issue that would have been neater if it had come out BEFORE Forever Evil (And perhaps for obvious reasons, Nightwing didn't get a "Villains cover" issue (which given all the others had tied up heroes on those covers has to be some sort of cosmic irony))

Three pages under the cut, by Kyle Higgins and, I think, new regular artist Will Conrad
