Pow Chk Thk Bump Monday!

And now, from Detective Comics #453, I bring you...

Sound Effect Theater! (tm!):

This was actually a pretty good era for Detective.  The Batman stories, despite the lack of costumed villains, were pretty good and stuck to the spirit of the "detective" aspect by requiring Bats to use his sleuthing skills.

The back-up stories were pretty decent, as well.  Gone were the reprints, and instead we got stories from Hawkman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, the Atom, and of course...

It's in the bag!  And by "bag," I mean the bag holding your testicles, which I am clearly crushing right now!  Tell the underworld not to ef with Ralph Effin' Dibny!

Hey, did you know there was a Plastic Man pilot made for Cartoon Network?  No?  Well, here it is:

I would have watched the heck out of that show.  You dropped the ball, Cartoon Network!

See you tomorrow!

ZOMG! I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy that they didn't make that huge putrid steaming pile into a show.

It was better than the 1980s Plas cartoon!

I'm really surprised the Comics Code didn't insist DC move the impact point of Ralph's fists to the guy's gut!

One other point:
Shouldn't the "plank of wood" have the distinctive yellow/black belt along with the red coloring?
That was always the "giveaway" in the Jack Cole series.
(BTW, You note he has the red leggings of the 1960s Plas?)

Oh, god. Can't believe how much I'm laughing at that bag joke.

I've seen this pilot at least a couple of times over the years. It's not bad at all (it makes fun use of Plastic Man's powers and Tom Kenny is a great voice actor for the part), though I think there's probably nobody who's just ambivalent about it. You either like it or hate it with a passion.
