Plastic Man #5 (of 6)

In Shops: Oct 10, 2018
SRP: $3.99

Eel O’Brian takes a flexible view of morality: you walk on your side of the line, he’ll keep his feet on his (no promises about his hands, eyes, ears or midsection). That all stopped when his alter ego Plastic Man got suckered into the high-stakes world of super-heroic traitors and super-villainous cabals. Now he’s gonna stiffen his spine, screw up his courage and take the law into his own hands. Or he’s going to swat Queen Bee into next Tuesday with his fly-swatter hand. One or the other.

Plastic Man fondly remembers his days as a simple street thug, when people knew his name and respected his talents (even though no one ever respected him). But he’s turning over a new leaf, mentoring the youth, saving old ladies from pick-pockets and younger ladies from kidnappers. Unfortunately, when he meets the kidnappers and realizes this entire episode’s nothing more than a setup? All those leaves flip back over with a vengeance!

In his relentless pursuit of Tweety, Sylvester suddenly finds himself with a new, human ally-Catwoman. Tweety then realizes that he’s going to need some help too, and recruits a super-hero of his own. It isn’t long before the scale of the conflict begins to get out of control and suddenly theres’s a full scale war between cats and birds that threatens to take over all of Gotham.

Lord Greystoke may be a man of means, but money and possessions mean nothing compared to his family. Once they are threatened, Tarzan will stop at nothing to keep his loved ones safe. And if his enemies think they know fear, they have yet to experience the fury that is Red Sonja unleashed!

Eel went looking for a kid, but he found a Man-Bat instead, who brought him not only to the kid but also to the lair of the secret society that needs Plastic Man to stop asking inconvenient questions. Yes, it counts as comically good fortune if you squint your eyes and look around the corner (which he can totally do without even breaking a sweat. Or, you know, his neck).
