The Secret Lair
Plastic Mom always wanted him to be a surgeon.
STOP PLAS, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP!
H-he’s aready dead.
Between this and masquerading as Big Barda’s dress, I’m beginning to doubt Plas’ claims of reforming from his criminal career.
I like how he only THINKS “glub” but doesn’t actually say it
And I suppose YOU could say “Glub” with Plastic Man’s arm down your throat?
I didn’t realize Plastic Man had been around that long.
Oh yeah, he debuted in Police Comics early, 1941 I think it was. And he was always a “break the fifth wall” kind of character, speaking directly to the audience fairly often.
Jeff, there’s a fifth wall? I thought it was the fourth?
Ha, what an idiot! You are of course correct Loki, it’s the fourth wall. Moron. I blame math illiteracy.
I think breaking the fifth wall happens when you say something to the comic and it answers back…
Hmm, so that means he preceded Mr Fantastic? I was completely unaware.
Yep, Plastic Man was around for two decades before Mister Fantastic. One thing I’ve noticed reading these Golden Age books, frankly, is how few truly original ideas there were. So many of these characters were basically rip-offs of each other.
