Added DiffLines:
* {{Foil}}: ComicBook/ElongatedMan. One was a crook, the other a cop. One gets his power from a serum, the other was transformed. One is mission focused, the other... not so much. Their personalities became much more different after Ralph had a major DespairEventHorizon, but even before, while Ralph smiled, Plas grinned.

** He ''can'' be cut in half like paper on scissors - good luck trying to do that, however, since he'll never allow that situation to occur. ** Plas can also be involuntarily be tied in knots that even he can't untie, but that requires a speedster.

PostCrisis, they changed Plastic Man's origin to make him DarkerAndEdgier. Now he never was rehabilitated by monks, instead he tried to commit suicide because he considered himself no longer human, and Woozy was a mental patient. Hey, it was the DorkAge. Fortunately, later portrayals have been more positive: his first origin got restored, Plas is his cheerful self again, and he joined the Justice League where he proved his mettle.

** Another JLA storyline had him, like the other Justice League members, [[LiteralSplitPersonality split in two]]: the stretchy goofball (who literally ''could not'' be serious) and Eel O'Brian, ex-career criminal. Eel is the first to recognize that the split heroes are all incomplete in various ways and need to be put back together, even though some are happier this way, and it's mostly his steely determination and sometimes ruthless manipulation that makes it happen. He also comments that he remembers the sound a gun butt makes against a skull, and has begun to crave hearing it again...

He also comments that he remembers on sliding back into his "thug" mentality: --->"You know the sound a gun butt makes against across a skull, guy's skull? It's low and has begun to crave hearing wet. Like a ball bat pulpin' a melon. Haven't heard that noise f'r years. Now it's like a song I can't get outta my head. And I wanna hear it again...again."

For starters, Plastic Man (or "Plas" for short) was created by another company, Quality Comics, in 1941. He was the star character of ''Police Comics'' #1-102 (August, 1941-October, 1950). And also gained his own title, ''Plastic Man'' which lasted for 52 issues (1943 to February, 1955). While among the longest running characters of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, Plas was then pretty much forgotten. Quality Comics ceased operations in 1956, selling most, if not all of its properties to DC Comics. The new owners continued a few of Quality's ongoing series, most notably ComicBook/{{Blackhawk}}. But had no interest in reviving defunct series. The character was next revived in ''Plastic Man'' vol. 2 #1 (December, 1966), though the Plastic Man of this series was said to be a look-alike son of the original.

* PsychicStatic: Plas's physical brain changes shape so drastically and constantly that any psychic trying to read him finds the task absolutely impossible. It'd be like trying to read a piece of paper after having shredded it, mixed it with loads of other shredded papers and throwing it all inside a wind tunnel. In fact, in one storyline in which the MartianManhunter became BrainwashedAndCrazy, it was Plas who was able to take him down since not only does he have his psychic defenses, he's also a shapeshifter rivaling and possibly surpassing J'onn.

** In ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain, Batman seems to be of the opinion that Plas is one of the most powerful and potentially dangerous beings on Earth.

** In ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain, Batman seems to be of the opinion that Plas is one of the most powerful and potentially dangerous beings on Earth. There's a ''reason'' why his contingency plan for Plastic Man going rogue boils down to "just hope that it doesn't happen".
