Synopsis for "The Origin of Plastic Man!"

This story is reprinted from Police Comics #1.

Eel O'Brian is little more than a small-time thief. Along with his gang of underlings, he breaks into and attempts to rob the Crawford Chemical Works. Police arrive on the scene, but as Eel and the others flee, he is exposed to deadly, toxic acid. He manages to make it outside, but stumbles down unconscious.

When he awakens, Eel finds that his skin is now super-pliant. He can contort his limbs and facial features into any shape he desires. He is inside a small monastery where a kindly monk has chosen to nurse him back to health. The experience has changed more than jut Eel's physiology though. He feels that he has been given a second chance and renounces his former life of crime. Donning a stretchable costume and a pair of goggles, Eel decides to fight crime as the super-hero Plastic Man.

Plastic Man tracks down his old gang and stops them from committing another robbery. He turns them over to the police and returns the stolen loot. The police have no idea that this strange, new hero was once a criminal.

While visiting his cousin, Robby Reed sees a dam break. The escaping water threatens a small farming community so Robby uses his H-Dial to become Giantboy. Giantboy quickly builds a rock wall to stop the oncoming water and save the farmers. Giantboy's attention is then attracted by an explosion from a nearby lab. Giantboy rescues a scientist trapped inside but he falls victim to poison gas. He stumbles into the river where onlookers believe he dies. However, Robby has enough life remaining to use the H-Dial and become his teenage self, who is unharmed by the poison.

The next day at the fair, Robby becomes King Kandy in order to stop the theft of a pearl necklace by a crook calling himself the Wizard of Light. Though the crook gets away, Robby sees him again later. This time Robby is transformed into Plastic Man. As Plas, Robby pursues the Wizard and deduces the crook's identity as Dr. Drago, the scientist he rescued earlier as Giantboy, since Drago was totally unharmed by the gas that overwhelmed the powerful Giantboy, and must've immunized himself beforehand.
