|[List of appearances]|
Plastic Man is a superhero from the DC Universe who appears in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham as a playable character and a pre-order exclusive figure for Gamestop in 2014.
Plastic Man reuses Superman's "spit-curl" hairpiece and wears a pair of large white glasses. His costume is composed of a tight red body suit with yellow accents and a v-neck. He wears black boots and trunks.
This costume is based on Plastic-Man's look in the Flashpoint alternate timeline rather than pantless and barefoot classic costume which appears in most other comics and cartoons.
Video game variants
Plastic-Man has the same look in-game as the physical figure. He is able to stretch his arms to attack at a distance, turn into an airplane to fly, and transform into various forms on special pads to collect Red Power Bricks, making Plastic Man the only character able to do so. A portrait of Plastic Man wearing his classic costume appears in the Hall of Justice when it is infiltrated by the Legion of Doom.
Patrick "The Eel" O'Brian is a common criminal who is left for dead by his gang after he is shot at a failed heist and chemicals enter his wound. Eel survives, however, and begins wandering aimlessly as, unbeknownst to him, he begins to develop shape shifting abilities. The people of the city believe that he is a monster. Using his abilities, Eel escapes the mob chasing him and meets a clinically insane man named Woozy Winks. He and Woozy become involved in a debate about whether there would be more money involved in committing or fighting crime, and unable to decide themselves, flip a coin to select how Eel should use his powers. The coin chooses good. After adopting the name Plastic Man (a reporter having misheard "Elastic Man") Eel and Woozy open up a private detective agency. Plas later joins the Justice League and develops an uncanny friendship of sorts with Batman.
Plastic Man is able to stretch his body infinitely, making him one of the most powerful characters in the DC Universe. He can also morph the shape of his body parts to transform into virtually anything, but a colour change is usually too difficult to pull off. His stretching powers also make him nearly invulnerable, though he is weak to sudden changes in the temperature.
- Plastic Man is the first and only LEGO figure based on the Flashpoint timeline in either the video games or an official product.
