One-Star Squadron #1 Review: Uneven
The lineup includes the Heckler, Plastic Man (who's barely seen), G.I Robot, Minute Man, and more … basically, this is a group that Justice League Detroit or the Great Lake Avengers would call "losers." It's not that they don't have power on deck — Don Hall is back from the dead as Hawk & Dove[...]
Ebay Melting Down Over The 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?

Terrifics #7 cover by Dale Eaglesham and Ivan Nunes
Tom Strong, Mister Terrific, and Plastic Man each get good presentations ranging from imposing and intimidating to visually creative Michael Atiyeh contributes a good color treatment that is consistently bright and dazzling throughout. Terrifics #7 more-or-less continues the slump of last issue, and I am a little disappointed While this issue is decidedly better and at[...]

It also felt like a classic Fantastic Four story, which Zdarsky has proven himself very adept at crafting in this series. Plastic Man #1 cover by Aaron Lopresti 5 Plastic Man #1 Gail Simone does it again with Plastic Man, a charming, well-paced, and funny book about Eel O'Brian This comedy superhero book has some heart to it, and that's what sets[...]
Plastic Man #1 cover by Aaron Lopresti
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Plastic Man has returned to Cole City to investigate the crime that gave him his powers This leads Eel O'Brian to being beaten to a bloody pulp by his old running mates, Suitcase Mizzola, Brutal Benny Turlin, and Dizzy Darren Fitzroy This was just a ploy, of course, and Plastic Man chases after his[...]
Terrifics #4 cover by Doc Shaner
Metamorpho and Plastic Man continue their Ben-and-Johnny routine, but it gets points for genuinely being funny. The comic continues to feel like the Fantastic Four, but it still maintains its own unique twists This issue gave me some great nostalgia for Matt Fraction's stint on Fantastic Four from the beginning of Marvel NOW! That was a[...]

Terrifics #3 cover by Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo
Joe Bennett's artwork puts the four into great-looking action panels, including a ghastly Plastic Man and Metamorpho-made slingshot which is both cool and oddly haunting Bennett's work looks great throughout, and Marcelo Maiolo compliments it with a well-balanced and popping color palette which brings the visuals together very well. Terrifics continues to rise to be among[...]
Terrifics #2 cover by Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo
Mister Terrific himself comes off as detached and goal-focused, and the interactions between Metamorpho and Plastic Man have a "Thing and Human Torch" vibe to them Phantom Girl isn't as comparable to Invisible Woman as one might expect, as the former seems far less a leader than the latter The threat which arrives towards the[...]

Dark Nights: Metal #5 Cover by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, and FCO Plascencia
Plastic Man's presence is further contextualized, and we get an idea of what the new Eel O'Brian will be like. GL and Mister Terrific make for an especially good team-up Who knew? They play off of each other quite well, and there are plenty of laughs between the two (especially in regard to how many asses[...]
Terrifics #1 cover by Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo
Mister Terrific, Metamorpho, Plastic Man, and Phantom Girl is an interesting lineup Plus, it shows that DC is willing to publish a Fantastic Four comic even if Marvel won't.
