What is the appeal of this character?
>>
>>105243039
Fun, something that fell out of fashion in comics back in the 80s
>>
>>105243039
Why don't you read a comic and find out, faggot?
>>
>>105243039
He's basically cartoon version of The Mask
>>
>>105243039
he'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
>>
>>105243805
at 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

Being a better than Deadpool.

outside f the golden age, any trades i could pick up?

>>105243039
it's the only readable(and even good) golden age comic
>>
>>105244555
classic Captain Marvel is great too.
>>
>>105243039
I 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.
>>
>>105244555
t. 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.
>>
>>105243039
Intelligent, nihilistic, and with a wicked sense of humor.

>>105245910
oh 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.

That 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.

Kyle 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.

>>105245946
One of the best comics of the 00s.

This 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.

Be honest. if plastic Man and Superman fought, who would win?
>>
>>105248021
Superman would punch him so hard his molecules would dissipate and he'd turn into steam man
>>
>>105248046
>people on /co/ actually believe this
Race war when?
>>
>>105243039

he'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.

plastic man
>>
>>105247590
Couldn’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?
>>
>>105244555
Batman and Superman were both great.
>>
>>105243039
good guy joker. hes not an asshole and not super serious and means well.
>>
>>105248544
Wonder 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.
>>
>>105247770
Wait..plasty knows he's in a comic book?
>>
>>105248544
>implying that would do shit to Plas
His weakness is ice which Superman can already do.
>>
>>105248771
Ice 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.
>>
>>105248798
He got stuffed into a bag and almost suffocated to death.
>>
>>105248755
Um, what? Modern WW absolutely has super-strength.

Depends
If 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

holy fuck is that a bulge

One of the best dc heroes. How funny that the best dc characters were not even created by dc
>>
>>105250642
I feel like his attitude is more suitable for the power set than Reed
>>
>>105248046
You're right, but that wouldn't kill him.

Plas' powers are pretty significantly different that Reed's

Incels love him for whatever reason. Not sure, I lost my wizard powers.

I'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

Supes 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.

>>105252288
That 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.
>>
>>105251904
What? Oh shit! I just realized I have something in the oven! BRB!
>>
>>105252352
Plas
>>
>>105252359
Well, 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.
>>
>>105247889
His 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
>>105247513
All I can hear is Tom Kenny when I read these.

I am grateful for that.
>>
>>105252401
Same 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.
>>
>>105248021
You 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 canon
Look at this casual. I bet you also think Dr. Light really raped Billy Batson's dead body.
>>
>>105250967
they 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.
>>
>>105251158
The 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.

Try actually reading a comic book, underage. Believing youtube "experts" isn't something you should actually do.

Since there is a movie in the works it might finally get collected
