* BirthdayEpisode: A number of ''Elongated Man'' stories were set on his birthday. As her regular birthday gift for Ralph, Sue would customarily craft an elaborate mystery for him to solve.

* PowerPerversionPotential: Not in the obvious way. Ralph once gave a brute Gingold, then tied him in knots - and then threatened him by reminding him what would happen [[BodyHorror when the Gingold wore off]]. Yikes!

Ralph also joined the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} in [[TheSeventies 1970s]]. Along with Sue he was an important part of the [[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational League's more comedic period]]. Sadly, he's remembered today more for the fact that his wife was both raped AND murdered in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis''. He died shortly afterwards in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' while trying to find a way to resurrect her (at least he brought down an evil sorcerer and a major demon in the process). [[spoiler:Sadly, the demon escaped later, despite the trap seemingly being absolutely inescapable]]. They have both reappeared as ghosts since, with the ability to possess people for short periods of time, ala {{Comicbook/Deadman}}.

Ralph Dibny a.k.a. Elongated Man was created in TheSixties to be a CaptainErsatz of ComicBook/PlasticMan because the people at Creator/DCComics didn't realize that they technically already owned Plastic Man. In a way, this makes him the first SilverAge LegacyCharacter not to share a name with the character he was inspired by. He first appeared in ''"The Flash''" #112 (April, 1960). His wife and partner Susan "Sue" Dearborn was introduced in #119 (March, 1961). Notably, he was the first SuperHero to drop his {{Secret Identity}} and marry his {{Love Interest}} (in her first appearance, too!).

They've recently, after many years, finally reappeared in two separate comics from DC. They've been in ''{{ComicBook/Convergence}}: Justice League of America'', a two-part book that focused on the Detroit League and had the Dibnys alive, married, and very much in love. In the main DCU, Ralph has appeared under another name: [[spoiler: Big Shot in ''SecretSix''. Sue has reappeared in the same book as well]].
