Plastic Man – A Continuity Issue For Five Years Later To Fix?

When Five Years Later was first envisioned at DC Comics, it was designed to fix a few of the continuity goofs that had happened when the New 52 was launched.

Well, from today's Justice League #25, here's another to add to the pile.

Rather well executed, we get the origin of the New 52 version of Plastic Man. Henchman/crook called Eel, has a thing for rubber bands…

All well and good. Except… remember Justice League International #1?

Who is that masked man?

You know, if this was Twilight Of The Superheroes, we could say it all happened in the fluke. I wonder what Five Years Later: Future's End will have instead?
