Plastic Man is a super hero with the power to stretch himself to impossible lengths and even shapeshift to a degree. He is also a member of the Justice League. He was one of the heroes brought to the House of Mystery by Constantine after he got a distress call from Batman. Plastic Man went off looking for a bathroom but took a wrong turn and was chased around by some monsters. Green Arrow came up with a plan for everyone to switch costumes in order to render Nyorlath's spell useless and prevent him from nullifying everyone's super powers. Plastic Man was not happy to learn he had to pretend to be Wonder Woman. In the rematch, Plastic Man drop kicked Abnegazar. Black Adam emerged from the reopened fissure and changed the Brothers into monsters. Plastic Man had Swamp Thing use him like a slingshot and launched Rath into a portal opened by Constantine. Plastic Man continued to dress like Wonder Woman and started to find her boots comfortable.

Plastic Man tried to volunteer to infiltrate Brainiac's spaceship and take it out but Batman wouldn't even consider it. Superman tried to let him down easy and noted they needed someone who took the situation a little more seriously. Plastic Man morphed into a golfer and swatted one of Brainiac's orbs away but it landed right on Cyborg's head. Superman and Batman returned to the battle. Plastic Man had a brainstorm and decided he would show them he took superheroing seriously by defeating Brainiac and stopping the miniaturization ray. He slingshot himself to the top of the Daily Planet and stretched upward but one of the ship's robot detected him as a threat. Eight cannons surrounded Plastic Man. He made a strategic withdrawal and regrouped. He shapeshifted and hid himself among a flock of geese passing by the ship. The geese were deemed a 0.0% threat. Plastic Man slipped down a grate and reformed with a sore back. He was enamoured with Braniac's collection of bottled shrunken cities but left the room after he shaked one by accident.

Plastic Man entered the control room and shadowed a robot operating the miniaturization cannon. While the robot looked away, Plastic Man pressed a button to retract the cannon. The robot scanned Plastic Man and learned he was a 4.6% threat in Brainiac's database. He returned disguised as a robot with orders from "Steve" to take the ship out of orbit. The robot saw through the ruse and prepared to expunge him from the database permanently. Plastic Man turned into a boxing glove and took the robot out. The other three robots opened fire but Plastic Man took the guise of a bull fighter and tricked them into shooting each other and the controls. He constricted the last robot like a snake then entered the robot. He expanded and forced the robot to break to pieces. The cannon reached full power and Plastic Man found himself locked out of the computer. He hailed the other Leaguers for help. Unable to recall the cannon or fly the ship away, Plastic Man decided to make the ultimate sacrifice. He let the others know it was a real pleasure to work with the Justice League.

Plastic Man entered the cannon and expanded his size to force it to explode. The resulting explosion destroyed Brainiac's ship. The people of Metropolis cheered as the Justice League mourned. While Brainiac was restrained for transport, Plastic Man floated down like a balloon. Superman was happy to see him alive and congratulated him for saving the planet. Plastic Man burped out the 9,999 bottle cities from Brainiac's collection. Brainiac updated his database and assigned Plastic Man an 87% threat level then vowed to destroy him first next time. Plastic Man was ecastic he was an 87 and had an archenemy. He proposed they get sushi to celebrate then gathered everyone in for a selfie. He morphed his head into a cheeseburger then took the photo and posted it.
