Plastic Man and The Blonde Phantom



I was looking for a Golden Age character to pair up with Plas and I liked how these two looked together.  You have to appreciate a heroine who will fight crime in heels and an evening gown!  Plastic Man has always been one of the goofiest looking superheroes, but I love the fact that he has never changed his look throughout the decades.  Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever seen him without his goggles since his first appearance... do they even come off?

Cool!
Is this the same Blonde Phantom that was in the all-ages Marvel Adventures Spider-Man not too long ago? Or was that a different character? She had the power to make people forget things...

I liked that Plastic Man was in the Justice League. Before DC went event-crazy, there was a four-issue arc by Mark Waid (I think) that separated the heroes from their real identities. I think Plastic Man wore sunglasses, but I'm not sure...come to think of it, I don't think he's ever been seen without shades on...

Plastic Man appeared without his goggles in issue of The Brave & The Bold

Plas used his Eel O'Brien identity to do undercover work in at least a couple of Golden Age stories, kind of like Batman uses Matches Malone. The story that introduced Woozy Winks comes to mind.

@AirDave I remember that storyline, I think he STILL had his goggles on! Some secret identity, eh?
