History: Eel O’Brian, abandoned by his criminal gang after being shot and exposed to the unidentified chemical, wandered the streets as his new powers developed, frightening others and bringing the police and National Guard down on him as a dangerous monster. Eel was at first oblivious to the changes to his body, but after realizing that he was the monster at large, he used his new abilities to escape his pursuers. Eel soon became so despondent over his new condition that he attempted suicide by jumping off a bridge.

Fortunately, he was interrupted by Woozy Winks, a former mental patient who desired nothing more than to return to the warm safety of a straitjacket and padded room. Eel and Woozy decided to work together and capitalize on Eel’s new powers to make their fortunes (Eel wanting to get rich quick, Woozy just wanting his “old room” back), but couldn’t decide whether there was more money in crime or crime-fighting, and resorted to flipping a coin to choose serving the law (though Woozy had his doubts early on). Eel ended up with the name ‘Plastic Man’ after a reporter misinterpreted his first choice of ‘Elastic Man’. Eel and Woozy set up a detective agency in New York City and go on to have various misadventures together.

Over the years, Plastic Man has worked with the FBI, served as their liaison to the All-Star Squadron, adventured as a member of the Justice League, and has generally come to be regarded as a capable – if extremely annoying – member of the hero community.

Recently, Plastic Man assisted Mister Terrific into thwarting Simon Stagg’s plot to open the portal to the Dark Multiverse using Metamorpho who had been transmuted to Nth Metal. While trying to get Simon Stagg to close the portal with the help of Plastic Man, Mister Terrific was sucked into the portal with Plastic Man and Metamorpho as Plastic Man shielded them from the Dark Multiverse energy which he was immune to. Upon arriving on a lifeless world, they encountered Phantom Girl who had been trapped in her intangible form and who had no knowledge of sending a signal. When the four of them found a computer in the gut of a giant dead creature, they were greeted by a hologram of Tom Strong who stated that they are needed to save the universe. Mister Terrific, Plastic Man, and Metamorpho learned from Phantom Girl that she was stuck in an intangible form since she was a child. After the four of them made it back to their world, Mister Terrific tried to leave the three of them at Simon Stagg’s compound only to be drawn back to them. Due to the effects of the Dark Multiverse energy, Mister Terrific concluded that they couldn’t go their separate ways due to this inescapable bond. The team went through several adventures whilst being attacked by a figure known as Doctor Dread, who was later revealed to be Java.This revelation, coupled with the team curing their condition, caused everyone to split up. Plastic Man attempted to connect with his ex Angel and their son Luke, who inherited his stretching powers. Initially reluctant, the two bonded over a game of basketball and stealing the Batmobile. They were then called upon by the rest of the team to band together and save Mr. Terrific from the Terribles, a team of their evil doppelgängers put together by Doctor Dread. Plas and Luke, now suited up in his Offspring look, worked together to take down a vampiric version of Plastic Man from another dimension. Following the Terribles’ defeat and imprisonment, the Terrifics officially reunited as a team, with Luke, Element Dog, and Miss Terrific joining the roster.
