** Elasti-Girl is given this trait in a team-up story with TheFlash. We're told that since she used to be a glamorous movie star, being turned into a "super-powered freak" was especially hard on her, and she smiles constantly in order to "look pretty" and keep others from being afraid of her. She has no idea that it actually has the complete opposite effect. This isn't brought up again in any other DP story; WordOfGod says that it took place during the team's early days (post-Byrne reboot) when Rita was still getting used to her new life.
