Malleable Comedy Heroics Plastic Man Episode 17 Opinion Piece
This episode is a solo segment of the series from after Baby Plas (the original son of Plastic Man) was introduced. Despite the concept of a scientist using pseudoscience that mixes chemistry and ingredients from outer space make a Plastic Ape this episode is boring. It just does not go for full blown absurdity. In fact the three established main characters seem to act out of character in a plot first way. Simplified this means Hula screws up less, Plastic Man is less of an idiot savant smart aleck superhero, and Penny is just used to save the day. Finally the comedy is either set-up but not paid off or punchlines with no set-up, thus boring.
