In 1941 on Earth-Two, petty crook "Eel" O'Brian was shot during a botched robbery attempt and his wound contaminated by unknown chemicals which altered his body chemistry, giving him the ability to change shape. Nursed back to health by an order of monks, and now truly repentant, O'Brian embarked on a new career as the crime busting Plastic Man (often aided by his idiot sidekick Woozy Winks), soon joining the FBI and later becoming their official liaison with the newly formed All-Star Squadron. In late 1942 however, Plas migrated to Earth-X along with numerous other heroes who became collectively known as the Freedom Fighters, and due to the divergence in history on that world (where the Nazis were not defeated for several decades) eventually died in action there.
