** In the Kyle Baker run, local ActionGirl Morgan wonders if letting Woozy Winks [[SwissCheeseSecurity wander around FBI headquarters completely unattended]] is really a good idea, as a "a spy should appear foolish and unkempt". Of course, this is ''[[IdiotHero Woozy Winks]]'' we're talking about. As it turns out, [[spoiler: the actual spy is a {{Subversion}}, as its the hyper-competent Morgan herself who is manipulating the system to her own ends.]]

** Plastic Man gives the Regime one of their greatest blows when he leaves retirement for just ''one day'', by easily swimming to their super-prison at the bottom of the ocean, and jail-breaking its entire population with Lantern rings and Mirror Master's belt, which he casually swiped from the Justice League.

** In the Injustice universe he points out to the Justice League that Superman is literally sitting on a throne, and that they're teamed up with a guy called Sinestro who even has stereotypically evil facial hair.

In his origin story, Plastic Man was "Eel" O'Brian, a gangster. One night while robbing a chemical company, things went awry as O'Brian was shot and fell into a vat of unknown chemicals; the rest of his gang abandoned him as they made their getaway. He managed to escape and was taken in by a monastery, where he recovered. The betrayal by his own men and the kindness of the monks inspired him to change his life, and he started using his newfound [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting powers]] (he can change into anything he can imagine, but always retaining the same colors) to battle crime as "Plastic Man". He kept his SecretIdentity as O'Brian in order to infiltrate the underworld, but eventually joined the FBI.

As you can imagine, given the potential for zanyness of his powers, Plastic Man soon became more of a comedy series, especially after gaining a man named Woozy Winks as a {{sidekick}}. Many of his villains were even sillier, being parodies of ComicStrip/DickTracy criminals or having [[PunnyName pun-based names]].

In this new version, Plastic Man was never rehabilitated by monks, and briefly considered suicide in the first issue because he considered himself no longer human, until he decided to become a hero instead. Woozy, meanwhile, was now a former mental patient who was quite content in his comfortable padded cell before he got booted out thanks to "something called 'Reaganomics.'" While it was slightly more mature, it was mature the way ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' was more mature then ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''.

Kyle Baker wrote and illustrated an unashamedly cartoony series from 2004 to 2006, which was much loved by critics and ignored by everyone else. Bakerís series returned to the origin of the Jack Cole stories and mocked the ultra-seriousness of modern superhero comics.
