Plastic Man was once Quality Comics' signature super hero of the Golden Age, but he had yet to flex his malleable DC muscles a decade after the company acquired rights to the character. Resilient as his name suggests, though, Plastic man put his best foot forward in 1966. After being called up briefly by Robby Reed in the "Dial H for H-E-R-O" feature in issue # 160 of House of Mystery, Plastic Man finally starred in his own series.

Written by Arnold Drake with art by Gil Kane, "the slyest, slippery-est, slinky-est super hero of them all" was targeted by Dr. Dome, a helmeted heavy who utilized weapons devised by the notorious Professor X. With the aid of Dome's seductive daughter, Lynx, and Fawnish, the disgruntled butler of Plastic Man's rich girlfriend "Mike" Dome and Professor X made many attempts to end Plas' elasticated life. Ultimately, though, they just couldn't cut short the long arm of the law. Plastic Man apprehended Professor X, while Dr Dome and the others remained at large for future battles.

Plastic Man - who was revealed as the Golden Age Plastic Man's son, Eel O' Brien Jr - wouldn't enjoy and extended run, however. After only 10 issues, Plastic Man unfortunately bounced into creative limbo for a decade.
