Last Name

Is his last name "O'Brian" or "O'Brien". And, of course, it should be moved.

His name is "O'Brian" just like it says now.

I thought it was O'Brien for the longest time. Maybe I'm thinking of the Golden Age version. Anyway, I just moved it to O'Brian (New Earth). --Brian Kurtz 18:09, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
In Police Comics #1 (1941), his name was Eel O'Brian. In Plastic Man #7 (1967), his name was Eels O'Brien. In Secret Origins #30 (1988), his name was Eel O'Brien. In JLA #50 (2001), his name was Patrick O'Brian (nicknamed Eel). NetSpiker (talk) 07:26, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Plastic Man (Super Comics)

There was a series of Plastic Man published by an extinct publisher called Super Comics during the 1960s. It was New York-based. I have not yet compared whether these are just reprints or unreleased material. At least 18 issues. In any case, this would be actually Plastic Man Vol 2; the number of any Plastic Man series published by the DC would be increased by 1 (the Vol 2 would be Vol 3, and so on) Kowalewski (talk) 10:34, June 25, 2018 (UTC)

Ah, yes. I. W. Publications. I believe we had some of their stuff here at one time, at least a publisher page, until it was decided that they were outside of our scope. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 10:47, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
IIRC, we decided not to cover that stuff. We had a discussuion about that concerning Ajax-Farrell. --Tupka217 11:37, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
I honestly do not understand. This is not the Dc Wikia? Plastic Man is a DC character. Judging by the few issues I read from Super Comics, that material is very good. I would say much better than what DC itself did with the character during the 1960s and 1970s. The art is hilarious. What about "Plastic Man (Super Comics) Vol 1"?

The three Super Comics Plastic Man issues are all Quality reprints of questionable legality. #11 reprints Plastic Man #16. #16 reprints Plastic Man #21. #18 reprints Police Comics #95. DrJohnnyDiablo (talk) 23:15, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, these Super Comics were printed by a shifty businessman who had gotten his hands on the actual printing plates used on the original comics, knew he didn't have the rights to reprint, but also knew the original companies were out of business. So he went ahead and published (and even commissioned new cover art)! But they are still illegal bootlegs, and no more belong here than the fan-produced xerox-printed golden-age reprints made in the late 70's. Shadzane 💀 (talk) 20:42, June 26, 2018 (UTC)
