Last year 93-year-old Mike Greenstein astonished an America's Got Talent studio audience and hundreds of watchers on the street outside when he pulled a 3,500 pound car occupied by his brother, his brother's wife, and his girlfriend across a finish line using only his teeth.
Greenstein, who goes by the name Mighty Atom Jr., inherited his talent from his father, Joseph Greenstein, known as The Mighty Atom. His life is chronicled in a book called The Mighty Atom: The Life and Times of Joseph L. Greenstein; Biography of a Superhuman.
Joseph Greenstein was a strongman in an era of strongmen who performed in the 1930s and 1940s. He was a devout Jew and a fundraiser for charitable causes. His son continued his record of feats of incredible strength.
