I read that Plastic Man once sneaked into Wonder Woman's room and watched her undress and from that point on the two don't work together often. Can someone tell me the name of the comic book/series?

    So, Wonder Woman had Plastic Man *cough* in her bedroom? That doesn't seem like a story you'd see in a normal comic book and nothing too special to even have as a plot. :) – Mario Jul 18 '16 at 6:14
  • He at least once got caught masquerading as a dress Big Barda had put on. The final shot on that page involved Barda trying to strangle him, but the next scene had him still on the JL team for some reason... – Shadur Jul 10 '17 at 13:03

This is JLA vol 1. #62. (Golden Perfect, Part I).
Plastic Man disguises himself as a light fixture but gets called on it.

    until the next time... I think this implies that this wasn't the first time Plastic Man was peeping on her. Especially because she immediately knew he was there without lashing out at him. Like it has happened before and she knew getting angry at him wouldn't have any effect. – Nzall Jul 18 '16 at 7:56
  • The question I have in that scene is actually why Martian Manhunter didn't say anything, because his powers make it so that he must have known. – Durakken Jul 18 '16 at 8:14

    @Durakken wasn't that sort-of addressed some years ago because Plasticman's brain has been plasticized and is therefore no longer organic and doesn't work the same way as everybody else's? Also, as a chemist, declaring plastic to be inorganic sets my teeth on edge. But that was some JLA series with an invasion and Plas had retired to raise his son and Martian Manhunter had to drag him out of retirement because he was the only one on earth capable of stopping the menace (what about all the other elemental heroes like the MetalMen?) – Broklynite Jul 18 '16 at 8:33

    @Broklynite dunno. My knowledge of those characters are limited. It might be the case. And yeah I get what you mean by calling plastic inorganic, but then dividing chemistry into organic and inorganic is a bit stupid to begin with so it's forgiven imo. – Durakken Jul 18 '16 at 8:54

    @Broklynite: Plastic Man isn't literally made out of plastic. That part of his name refers to the fact that he can reshape himself. Initially, the creators wanted to call him India Rubber Man. But yes, his structure has fairly consistently rendered him immune to telepathy. Batman referred to it as that his mind is "no longer organic", but it's probably closer to indicate that it's no longer human, as seen in Rock of Ages where he's shattered into millions of pieces that are scattered for thousands of years, then he's perfectly fine once they're gathered together. – FuzzyBoots Jul 18 '16 at 13:22
