What is the appeal of this character?
>>105243039Fun, something that fell out of fashion in comics back in the 80s
>>105243039Why don't you read a comic and find out, faggot?
>>105243039He's basically cartoon version of The Mask
>>105243039he's fun! and his powers are hot!
The guy who created him, jack cole, is one of the most versatile artists in the history of the medium
>>105243805at the very least, Cole's Plastic Man is one of the best comics the Big Two owns, so it's a travesty that DC has yet to reprint much of it
>>105243039Being a better than Deadpool.
>>105243797Someone post the part in Injustice where he shit talks Superman and Sinestro.
outside f the golden age, any trades i could pick up?
>>105243039it's the only readable(and even good) golden age comic
>>105244555classic Captain Marvel is great too.
>>105243039I love plastic man. I like that the stakes are usually pretty low for him because he is invulnerable. I like how versatile his powers are. The humor is a bonus. He's fun.
>>105244555t. Hasn't read many Golden Age comics.It's probably the best Superhero comic of the Golden Age, though.
Sheer goofball. Also Kyle Baker's run is underrated.
>>105243039Intelligent, nihilistic, and with a wicked sense of humor.
>>105245910oh believe me, I have. it was mostly made by underpaid and undertrained kids and it shows. there are a few exceptions like plastic man and a few others but it is mostly shit.
>>105245910That guy might be a bit hyperbolic by saying it's the only one, but there are very few and Plastic Man is up there at the top. Not only better drawn than must but also quite celver too.
>>105247497>>105247513This shit is so hilarious and one of the few cases in which whatever you can imagine can happen
>>105244344Kyle Baker's run is classic. I think the last stretch was never collected though. The Foglio/Barta/Nowlan mini is a lot of fun too, but I don't know if it was ever collected.>>105245946One of the best comics of the 00s.
>>105243039>we live in the universe where /co/ questions the appeal of Plastic ManPop me, it hurts to live.
>>105247770Fuck this Shazam bullshit, when are we getting a multisexual, multicultural cast all playing Plastic Man?
>>105243039Being fun and based.
>>105243039What did you think about the new mini and his character in the Terrifics?
>>105247813What are you on about? I was just posting fetishb8
>>105247623>the last stretch
>>105247497>>105247513This shit's fucking gold. It's even better when you realize they can't kill Plastic Man cause he's indestructible and just have to put up with his bullshit.
>>105247901Ha, didn't even notice.
>>105247497>>105247513Be honest. if plastic Man and Superman fought, who would win?
>>105248021Superman would punch him so hard his molecules would dissipate and he'd turn into steam man
>>105248046>people on /co/ actually believe thisRace war when?
>>105243039he's an uberpowerful mr.fantastic-like shapeshifter who instead of being an uptight super brainy arrogant douchebag is a former(?) thief and all around shister... and he could prob beat superman.
>>105247590Couldn’t Wonder Woman just hold his legs then have Superman fly to the other side of the universe with his upper half until he snaps?
>>105244555Batman and Superman were both great.
>>105243039good guy joker. hes not an asshole and not super serious and means well.
>>105248544Wonder Woman isn't strong. Without her sword, lasso, and bracelets even a civilian can beat her
I want to like him. I like the idea of a character who is both absurdly powerful (but within limits) and self-sabotaging such that he's usually quite irrelevant. But his visual design is just so... unappealing.
>>105247770Wait..plasty knows he's in a comic book?
>>105248544>implying that would do shit to PlasHis weakness is ice which Superman can already do.
>>105248771Ice is a "Weakness" in the same way magic is a weakness to Superman. It doesn't do bonus damage to him in any capacity, he just has no specific immunity to it. He can just stretch out of being frozen, he can stretch himself through molecules.
>>105248798He got stuffed into a bag and almost suffocated to death.
>>105248755Um, what? Modern WW absolutely has super-strength.
>>105248755>implying that woman trained from birth by a nation of warriors and the daughter of Zeus can be beaten by a mere mortalnever change casuals
>>105248021DependsIf Superman played it smart and freeze-breathed O' Brien and send him hurtling towards the Sun.Then Superman.Should Superman NOT freeze breath Plasticman. Then Plasticman easily wins
>>105247759holy fuck is that a bulgeabsolutely based
>>105248842lol what? Wonder Woman isn't the daughter of Zeus
>>105243039He's Plastic Man.
>>105249148Jesus Christ read a comic
serious question, tom kenny or dana snyder?
>>105249439I watched the cartoons isn't that already enough
>>105243039Mr. Fantastic but craaaAAAAzy!The absolute madman!
>>105243039One of the best dc heroes. How funny that the best dc characters were not even created by dc
>>105250642I feel like his attitude is more suitable for the power set than Reed
>>105248046You're right, but that wouldn't kill him.
>>105250642Plas' powers are pretty significantly different that Reed's
>>105243210>>105243435>>105243797>>105245456>>105250642>>105250646Being deliberately fun and funny is boring. I like my characters to prove their worth the effort entertaining me without standing out atesthetically or having a surface value bombastic personality.
>>105243039He's supposed to be a living cartoon. Appeals to fans of Ace Ventura 2.
>>105247513>cyborg takes a moment to look at sinestrokek
>>105243039I don't really enjoy his shtick, but if you say that out loud, the Plas-fanbase says HURR DURR GUESS YOU HATE FUN.
>>105243039>dc is full of super serious characters>throw one comedic relief character in with powers just bullshit enough to solo any member of JL if they underestimate him, which they likely would
Incels love him for whatever reason. Not sure, I lost my wizard powers.
>>105248021I'm not sure anything he has can kill plastic man, but he could always freeze him and drop him off on an ice world that's constantly -0
>>105248021Are you going to post the rest or?
he's a less shitty, less edgy deadpool.
>>105248021Supes just needs to reach an extreme temperature and then put him in a container. I forget how but this same issue also had his son beat who has an upgraded version of his powers. Plus earth X nazis managed to beat (and kill?) plastic man so it is possible.
>>105247497>>105247513>>105248021It's not just me who thinks he looks like Steve-O here, right?
>>105243210JLI came out back then though.>>105243288The Mask is a comic and it's pretty dark.
>>105251904Wasn't that when he was atomized and spent like a million years on the ground of the ocean slowly reassembling again?
>>105247513>>105247513meh it's okay>>105252098>>105252098Who?
>>105252288That is the 90s arc with avengers rip offs I believe. The earth x incident is from the recent new mini where the freedom fighters all die. Its inferred in it that plasticman has been captured/killed and his powers replicated by NAZIS.Injustice just has his son in prison without even so much as putting up a fight against supes.
>>105251904What? Oh shit! I just realized I have something in the oven! BRB!
>>105252359Well, Injustice has lots of people acting weirdly, plus, what is his son's powerlevel anyways? I reckon Plas just by the time he has spent like this has already so much more control over himself that he can do that weird shit others can't.
>>105247889His new mini was very "eh", with it revolving around Eel trying to protect an 8 year old girls right to take testosterone and have her genitals mutilated, but despite Gail Simone trying desperately to get approval from Transtwitter she got raked over the coals cuz her artist gave Plas a big dick bulge when he was shifted into Harley so that was fun to watch her damage control.Also, The Terrifics is very good and I like it.
>>105251158>Literally "I hate fun". The fuck do you mean a character has to "prove themselves" in order to be funny? Give an example. Typically, the easiest way to prove yourself in being funny is by.... being funny.
>>105247497>>105247513All I can hear is Tom Kenny when I read these.I am grateful for that.
>>105252401Same exact powers + color control. Plas just has him beat by experience and being a master escape artist. Which now that I think about it, I think injustice and flash point are the only times it is brought up the guy is probably batman level or better.
>>105248021You can beat heroes through incapacitating them.Superman is far too fast to be incapped, ever, in any scenario where he's not sleeping (vs plas). Superman just has to figure out how to throw plas into space/the sun. Cold breath + a good uppercut would throw him into space. Then you can cold breath him into the sun from a mile away.
>>105248806>Volume 4 is canonLook at this casual. I bet you also think Dr. Light really raped Billy Batson's dead body.
>>105250967they literally aren't, Reed can shapeshift too, he just doesn't change his face all the times because he is scared the police from the 40s will find out about him.
>>105251158The fun of Plastic Man comes from his surroundings. Shit talking a bunch of brooding Gods and fucking over all their plans just by sake of being zany is what makes him fun. If he were a zany character in an equally zany world, he wouldn't stand out.
>>105254541>they literally aren't>Reed can transform into objects with moving parts>Reed can alter his mass and strength simply by changing sizeTry actually reading a comic book, underage. Believing youtube "experts" isn't something you should actually do.
>>105243039He's a pervert like me when he's not being written like Gail Simone.
>>105248947Gail apologized to the trannies on Twitter and promised that the bulge would be gone in future printings.
Does Plastic Man even count as a living creature? I remember hearing something about certain DC instakill abilities not working on him.
>>105254875>Gail apologizedShe instead blamed the "unfortunate" belief that trans people only mean to deceive. She's too self- righteous to actually apologize about anything.
>>105251373>Incels love himIt's the exact opposite. See >>105251158
>>105243833Since there is a movie in the works it might finally get collected
