Will Ebay Melt Down Over First Appearance Of Plastic Woman?

The word on Friday was that Plastic Man was being written as a female-lead movie from Warners, written by Cat Vasko. Of course, Plastic Man has never been a female character in the comic. Or has she?

Earth 11 is a reality in the DC Multiverse – or Omniverse – in which the traditional genders of the DC Universe have been reversed, giving us Superwoman, Batwoman, Wonder Man and the rest.

And in one comic book portrayal of that world, from 2007, the unwieldy Countdown Presents: The Search For Ray Palmer: Superwoman And Batwoman #1, we got to see more of that world.

And that's it. Is it enough? You know the drill, off to eBay. Looks like you may get in early on this one. After no sales for a month, in the last two days there are four sales, up to $6. But there are plenty of copies available at cover price or less. Here are two for $1.76 each from Canada. How long will they last?

Plastic Man created by cartoonist Jack Cole first appeared in Police Comics #1 in 1943 alongside The Spirit. Plastic Man was one of the first superheroes to incorporate humor into mainstream action storytelling. The publisher, Quality Comics, was bought by DC Comics and was integrated into the DC Universe in fits and starts, including becoming a member of the Justice League. He has appeared in several television and video game adaptations, including a short-lived television show of his own named The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show which has never quite left my brain despite many attempts. And now a new kind of Plastic Man. Well, to be fair, Plastic Man was always rather fluid about most things.
