The end of the God Game is upon us-and technology has turned the Terrifics’ lives upside down! At long last, the secret origin of the mysterious technological being known as the Keeper is revealed, and this story is actually a tale as old as time. If the Terrifics are to shut the Keeper down and stop his tech infection from spreading worldwide, our heroes will need to do something they never thought they could: stop evolution itself. The Bizarro Terrifics were almost the most dangerous things in the universe. When Lex Luthor gives them a time machine, they become the most dangerous things in the universe. This will get weird.

The mystery of the God Game deepens, and the Terrifics find themselves face to face with a being unlike any they’ve ever encountered before. But is this digital deity benevolent…or is this an angry god? When the team discovers Simon and Sapphire Stagg on the executioner’s block, the answer would seem to be pretty clear!

The Terrifics have entered cyberspace for a battle unlike any they have faced before. It’s a battle against…God? Well, the science is still out on that, but as our heroes face off against all manner of monstrous plagues, things do seem to be reaching biblical proportions. Could the key to all this be the mysterious Pixel?
In 2019 it’s good to be bad for the villains of the DC Universe. “Dark Gifts” is the featured theme for August, as the vilest villains in the DC Universe take up Lex Luthor’s offer to be the ultimate versions of themselves, destroying their arch-foes—DC’s greatest heroes—in the process. Fans will see immediate evidence of just how much trouble DC’s heroes are in with a series of covers featuring “battle-damaged” versions of their logos.
From Action Comics to Wonder Woman, these covers, combined with the distinctive “Year of the Villain” cover banner, provide a significant visual cue to the epic struggles within each issue, struggles that the heroes may not be able to overcome. As the Year of the Villain continues to escalate throughout September and beyond, the cover logos will sustain increased damage, leading to a line-wide villain takeover in November.

The Terrifics…terminated! The team has called it quits and gone their separate ways-with less-than-terrific results. Plastic Man meets his estranged wife and son, now developing his own plastic powers; Metamorpho is still stuck in his human form as Rex Mason, unemployed, unqualified and going broke; Phantom Girl’s stuck in an arranged marriage back on her homeworld of Bgztl; and Mr. Terrific hunts the escaped Doc Dread, who travels the Multiverse collecting alternate Mr. Terrifics for murder-sport.
The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Warner Bros. is working on a Plastic Man movie with Amanda Idoko as the screenwriter. Bob Shaye will executive produce.
The character was created by Jack Cole for Quality Comics in 1941 and DC Comics picked him up when the publisher went under.
Plastic Man is Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, a crook who goes good. A chemical liquid splashes him during a botched heist allowing him to shape-shift and stretch his body.
After years out of the spotlight, the character has come back within the past year as a key character in the recent event Dark Knights: Metal and two series. Currently, he’s starring in a comic miniseries written by Gail Simone as well as The Terrifics written by Jeff Lemire.
