In the early 1940s on Earth-Two, petty crook Patrick 'Eel' O'Brian was shot during a botched robbery attempt and his wound contaminated by unknown chemicals which altered his body chemistry, giving him the ability to change shape. Nursed back to health by an order of monks, and now truly repentant, O'Brian embarked on a new career as the crime busting Plastic Man (often aided by his idiot sidekick Woozy Winks), soon joining the FBI and later becoming their official liaison with the newly formed All-Star Squadron. In late 1942 however, Plas migrated to Earth-X along with numerous other heroes who became collectively known as the Freedom Fighters, and due to the divergence in history on that world (where the Nazis were not defeated for several decades) eventually died in action there.
The events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths later altered O'Brian's history, erasing Earth-X and the tragic events that occurred there. In the new history then created, Plastic Man continues to fight for freedom today.
