A small-time gangster, Patrick "The Eel" O'Brian was a notorious thief, known for his ability to slip in and out of places and past security systems easily, which earned him his nickname. Patrick even evaded Batman on one occasion, revealing his life of crime was a result of his having been pushed around and disrespected his entire life. It was at some point after this that Patrick suffered an accident during a botched robbery at a plastics manufacturing plant that caused his entire body to become like liquid plastic. Surviving and gaining full control of his abilities, Patrick vowed to turn his life around and took up the identity of the costumed hero Plastic Man, so that he might make up for his past sins.
- Plastic Man was voiced by Tom Kenny.
