Comic Book Cover of the Week: PLASTIC MAN Vs. Monster Sewer Sludge?!

I had thoughts this morning for some reason about the 1979 Plastic Man cartoon! It made me wanna feature a cool old classic Plastic Man cover. This one from 1966 sees Plastic Man caught down in the sewers battling a creature created from meat by products and sludge?! Yep! Yuck! Plastic Man had some weird ass stories and villains back in the day and this cover is one of the coolest from that era wonderfully drawn by Ramona Fradon.

While we’re on topic lets take a peek back at that Plastic Man Cartoon!

And let’s not forget there was an elastic Plastic Man action figure too:

also here’s Robert Smith from The Cure as Plastic Man for the hell of it:

 

Also Plastic Man on the Superfriends! Whatta team up!

and some live action Plastic Man!

Vintage Elastic Superheroes STILL Rule!!

Stretch Armstrong and Stretch Monster were all the rage in the 70’s and early 80’s, so natural Marvel & Mego had to get on board with the trend! Sure having Stretch Spider-man and Hulk really didn’t make any sense!

To me it would at least make sense to have a Mr. Fantastic stretch figure wouldn’t it?! I guess they did it far later in the game, but still these were a time when toys really were something special-either that or I’m just a nostalgic geek!!

Finally Mr. Fantastic from 2005, not sure if he was filled with the weird goo that the ones from the 70’s were though!
