The point of this Forum Section

Some members are a little iffy on what should go in the Games & Humor forum section so.

Trivial games like "the person above you game" should be placed in this forum.

Humor of all kinds also belongs here, like the "Superman has a problem with kinky sex" thread.

What does not belong here would be things like video games, board games. Or humor coming directly out of comic books or discussion of books.

Boardgames and the like would go in the Action Figure and Toys section as could video games, though those could also be posted in the General Forum Section.

also any posts in this Forum Section do not count towards your post count.

Hope that helps!

    Plastic Man wins... FATALITY.
    Batman even said that in The Dark Knight Strikes Again.

    When I read the thread title, I assumed it was plastroncafe vs. Batman, to which I was going to reply plastroncafe.

    I would imagine that he could reuse a few of them.

    In a pure chance encounter?

    I'll go with Plastic Man on this. Easy.

    A sub-zero Bat-Pellet is one thing, but for a guy who once emerged from a cryo-chamber designed to take him out, and jokingly complained about about a "kink in his neck" ... yeah. That pellet would be incredibly insufficient. Never mind Eel choosing to go Godzilla size in this encounter just for the added humor.

Not to mention it makes him look totally inept if he can take down various super beings but has trouble with chumps like Killer Crock.

    Bats would recover quickly, find some way to supercool Plas' body to take away his elastic abilities, and then shatter him into a million pieces. Done.

    Plastic Man would murder Batman before Batman was even aware he was being murdered.

    This is a Batman vs. ... battle. It's ALL ABOUT over thinking it! because that's exactly what Batman would be doing if he found himself caught off guard.

    I'm assuming 'no-prep' would mean that Batman hasn't got a some sort of plasticiser reactant in his utility belt specifically formulated to work on Plas'.

    With that said, he probably would have a general 'sub-zero energy' pellet (or liquid nitrogen pellet) to use in the event of fire (a common enough situation for him to carry the pellets around) which could be used to slow Plas' down. Beyond that, Bats will be more aware of what he can use in the environment around him - fire extinguishers, steam pipes, etc. unless they just happen to meet in a sealed, featureless box Bats would probably McGuyver himself together the means to beat Plas, should there be sufficient materials to do so (worst case scenario, he can get on the Bat-radio and have Alfred launch a Bat-wing to deliver some sort of Bat-Plastic-Man defeator.

    If, however, they do meet in that sealed, featureless box, then Plas would win

    Yo.

    Bats w/ no prep isnt "automatic Bat-loss", but is an evening out of the general combat encounter.

    sure, Bats know about Plas but not being able to specifically exploit any of it via prep is all Im trying to bring forward..............

    SO STOP OVERTHINKING IT!!!

    But specifying that Batman has NO PREP is like specifying that he has no legs or arms. Sure, he'd lose under those circumstances, but when would that ever happen?

    Batman ALWAYS has SOME prep for anybody he's ever encountered before, as well as general prep for a number of contingencies. That is an integral part of the character (these days, anyway).

    The question, I think, is would Batman's GENERAL level of prep (given that he knows all about Plas) be sufficient to save him if he hadn't the slightest reason to expect that he'd be fighting him?

    I dunno. Logically probably not. As silly as Plastic Man is, his powerset is actually pretty formidable against a non-powered human. He seems very difficult to injure, and he seems unbelievably agile.

    In a Batman comic? Undoubtedly.

    In fact, I'd venture a guess that in ANY comic, the only way Plas beats Batman is if Plas has a good story reason to NEED to do so. But we all knew that already.
