Seriously, they screwed up with Billy big time. The DCnU needs to have some humor, like the old Young Justice comics.

Brilliant.

Simply Brilliant.

 

But Plas has already had his turn at the 'serious' hero thing. 

 

For the longest time, despite his quirky powers, he was used as the straight man in a wacky world.

 

To be honest I like the whole idea that his eccentric personality is his way of trying to both distance himself from his lowlife thug former life and embrace his shiny new Second Chance.

 

Let's hope they don't try to grim and gritty him.

Whelp once Captain Marvel goes down too you know that nothing good can happen.
Plastic Man you may want to run and hide in a corner where Bats can hopefully never find you.
(But seriously their expressions just cracked me up)

Oh no! Man this is awesome, the entire piece is just so well done. Love how petrified poor Plas is. He's one guy who can't go gritty, cause they just make him crazier.

Ethan Van Sciver revealed this week he's working on a upcoming 100-page special about horror stories where he'll reintroduce Platic Man in the new DC continuity. There goes the last piece of comedy and fun.

I, personally, don't give a damn about the undies, but I am still quite pissed that DC/WB have basically turned a lot of their superheroes into Batman clones.

I'm glad someone feels the same way too. I felt like Charlton Heston in Soylent Green, running around screaming "DCnU IS MADE OF FAIL!! KILL DAN DIDIO BEFORE HE RAPES ANYMORE OF OUR CHILDHOOD!!!"

It's retarded logic like this that was one of the main reasons I've stopped buying comics (the other being I'm broke). It's like the big two have done nothing but stagnate with their properties. Overhyped events no one wants, needless reboots just to get the attention of fans, and so on. If Dan and Joe Quesada wanted our full attention, they should have doused themselves in gasoline, struck a match, and jumped off the roofs of their respected companies into a shot glass of water. Would have gotten more headlines and increased the intelligence level of the human gene pool.... slightly. ^^;

Plas! Run! They'll turn you into one of them! There is no fate worse than that of an enraged, panties-twisted zombie.

But no seriously. I've already disowned DC. I LOVED their light-hearted characters and series. Bart Allen (when he was Impulse), Tim Drake (before Identity Crisis), Kon (before the Teen Titans reboot), the rest of the Young Justice crew, Captain Marvel, Kyle Rayner (before the resurrection of Hal)...but especially Plas. I've loved him since the early issues of JLA, and he's the last DC character I like that has NOT been bitten by the Gritty Realism Zombies.
