DC Universe Online Wiki

Patrick "Eel" O'Brian was a small-time crook who became the stretchable superhero known as Plastic Man. His unique completely malleable body chemistry allows him to stretch to great lengths and contort himself into any position imaginable.

Considered a comedian among the superhero community, he usually hides behind a smile and a joke, but nonetheless is a very powerful member of the Justice League of America.


Patrick "Eel" O'Brian started out as a lowlife gangster until he was shot by a guard at the Crawford Chemical Works. Stumbling into a vat of chemicals, he escaped and ended up in a spiritual retreat where he discovered that the chemicals had changed his body into being near unbreakable, with the ability to stretch every atom of his body into any shape he could imagine.
With these newfound powers, Eel changed his life for the better, becoming the super hero "Plastic Man".

  • Plastic Man first appeared in Polices Comics #1 (August 1941)
  • Due to his powers, Plastic Man is able to warp himself back from whichever animal form Circe turns him into. She has dubbed him "Dionysos", after the Greek god of the same name. He also cannot be mind controlled due to not possessing an organic body; a trait Batman finds useful when dealing with threats like Martians.
  • Of Irish descent, O'Brian's parents nicknamed him "Eel" due to how his thin body as a child allowed him to snake through the tightest spaces.
  • Between JLA missions, O'Brian owns and runs a security firm called O'Brian Security in Chicago.
  • Plastic Man is voiced by William Ofoegbu.
