Mr. Fantastic. :D
Mr. Fantastic intellect would beat out Plasticdude >_>

Mr. Fantastic would melt plasticman with something crazy made out of blowfish gastric acid and coconut juice.

hmmm .... I think plas would be be too unpredictable for Mr. Richards to deal with .... Reed would get his butt whooped by Eel's sheer lunacy.

plas stretching abilities is more vast than dweeb richard's.
06-07-2007, 02:24 PM
I think Plas is a bit more stretchable than Reed, but so what? What's he going to do, stretch Reed till he breaks? Doubtful. But Reed's one of the smartest guys ever. And he's already familiar with many of the weaknesses Plas has, since he has them as well. He'll find a way to stop Plas. Not even a fair fight.
hmmm .... I think plas would be be too unpredictable for Mr. Richards to deal with .... Reed would get his butt whooped by Eel's sheer lunacy. Except everyone just ignores Plastic Man

plastic man isn't limited to stretching. he's basically a shapechanger limited to only his imagination. considering that he's batshit crazy, reed would be screwed.

In my world, Reed would take him without much problem, but if I had to write it out, I'd think I'd do something different...
Elongated Man would be the winner. He'd sit and have a brewski while Stretcho and Plastic fought each other to a stand-still, then he's stretch his hands to grasp the trophy cup of victory and drink beer from it.

You could pretty much relabel this "genius v lunacy" Both are capable of producing creations from their minds, both members of teams.
Sadly, I'd still think the Brainbox would win, since he'd probably let Plastic Man do something mental and then put him in an electric glass cage that electrocutes him each time he changes shape/speaks.

Bright as he is, Reed's not a brawler. Eel is, and is more versatile.
For a real messy face-off, throw in Elongated Man, Metamorpho, Morph and the Impossible Man in the mix!

Lunacy doesn't just translate to ferocity, it often translates to reckless. Mr. Fantastic has had a lifetime of dealing with reckless madmen who are great fighters, thinkers, and so forth. I really think the edge goes to Reed. He'll be 5 steps ahead of Plastic Man all the way.

reed needs air to breath plas can just encase him and voila,dead reed
Plastic Man's powers are derived from an accident in which his body was bathed in an unknown industrial chemical mixture that also entered into his bloodstream through a gunshot wound. This caused a body-wide mutagenic process that transformed his physiology.
Plastic Man can stretch his limbs and body to superhuman shapes, lengths and sizes, with flexibility and coordination extraordinarily beyond the natural limits of the human body. He can become entirely flat so that he can slip under a door, use his fingers to pick conventional locks, pose as inanimate objects such as vehicles or pieces of furniture, and disguise himself by changing the shape of his face. There is no known limit to how far he can stretch his body. The only limitation he has relates to color, which he cannot change without intense concentration, so he is usually limited to his trademark colour scheme of red, yellow, black and caucasian flesh-coloured.
Unlike other elastic heroes such as Mr. Fantastic or the Elongated Man (who retain their human physiology while elastic), Plastic Man appears to have no circulatory system or internal organs; when his body is sliced or broken into pieces, there's no bleeding, and the exposed edges appear to have the same uniform pink color as his skin. He also isn't limited to contiguous, closed shapes. He can open holes through his body (becoming a true toroid or a net, for example) and can even turn into simple machines with real, moving parts (such as a cart with wheels that turn independently of the rest of his body). Having no organic brain, he is not vulnerable to telepathy and naturally he can recover instantly from transformation attacks, e.g. being turned into an animal.
Plastic Man's powers also extraordinarily augment his durability. He is able to withstand corrosives, punctures and concussions without sustaining injury (although he can be momentarily stunned). He is resistant to high velocities that would kill an ordinary person, as well as to blasts from energy weapons. On various occasions he has survived being melted down, turned into stone, frozen solid, and shattered into pieces, although some of these attacks do incapacitate him to the extent that he will need reassembling by his teammates. Most notably, in the JLA arc "The Obsidian Age", Plastic Man journeys into the past where he is scattered into separate molecules at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. He survives being disembodied like this for 3,000 years before the modern day Justice League reassembles him. While the experience is traumatizing, nearly driving him insane, Plastic Man eventually makes a full recovery and returns to duty just as before, indicating that in addition to everything else, he is also virtually immortal.
While he has no real brain, Plastic Man has been able to alter his consciousness. After the events of the Obsidian Age, he decides to retire and spend time with his son. When Batman comes looking for him to help defeat a rogue Martian, Fernus the Burning, he discovers something amazing. Plastic Man's son tells Batman that he went away for a day and came back with no memory of ever being a superhero. Only at the sight of his son posing as Plastic Man with his own shape-shifting abilities is his memory restored.
Before gaining his powers, Plastic Man was once a very talented professional thief. Although no longer a criminal, he has insight into their mindset, enabling him to be an effective sleuth
non-canonical Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again (2001–2002), Plastic Man was betrayed and locked in Arkham Asylum for years with his body forced into a perpetual egg-like shape by a pressurizing machine. The imprisonment and confinement drove him insane, and upon his release he lashed out at those around him. He fights Elongated Man, having the upper hand until Batman brings Plastic Man to his senses with a punch to the face.
Batman declares that Plastic Man is the single most powerful superhero — presumably even more so than Superman and Captain Marvel, who also appear in the book

I really don't think Reed's intelligence would help him too much. Plasticman is just too unpredictable. Everytime Reed would come up with an idea, Plasticman would do something retarded and completely random and make Reed just frustrated as all get out.
However I do believe Reed would still win. In the end Reed is still just a man. A man with a wife and children back home. And any father/husband can be pushed to the edge when it comes to the possibility of not seeing his family again.
Plasticman has nothing to fight for and nothing to lose.
Reed has everything to lose....which gives him the edge.
Where intelligence, stretching powers, lunacy, and fighting prowess fail, the emotions of a man in fear of never seeing his loved ones again always prevail.
Reed Richards wins this hands down.

Not true! PlasticMan does actually have a son. He was shown during 52. Offspring, I think his name was? Powers similar to his dad, but a gray and red costume as opposed to red and yellow.
Batman, who is generally considered the top expert on just about everything in the DC Universe, considers PlasticMan the most powerful being on the face of the earth. PlasticMan has much more versatility than Reed in his powers, not having to stay contiguous and being able to form semi-complex machinery even.
I have to go with Plasty on this. He survived for more than 3 millenia, which makes him pretty much immortal. (Obsidian Age).

after reading about dk2
i think pasty would take it
01-05-2009, 03:14 AM
I like Plastic man. So I would like to think he would win.
02-06-2009, 02:00 PM
Plasticman. are you freaking serious? this isnt even a contest.
02-06-2009, 04:37 PM
Yeah Plasticman is like the Impossible man. He'd whup Reed's butt. I'm a Marvel fan boy at heart, but I gotta go with the P-man FTW.
04-03-2009, 02:45 AM
Plastic Man all the way!
