Plastic Man (Quality/DC)
Real Name: Edward O'Brien
Search for 'Plastic Man (Quality/DC)' on Amazon

Can take almost any shape or stretch almost indefinitely

Can be flash-frozen and shattered.

As a crook, O'Brien was wounded during a caper at a chemical plant, and some acid got into the wound. O'Brien escaped, and stumbled his way to monastery, where the brothers nurtured his mind and nursed his body back to health. When he recovered, he discovered that the chemicals had transformed him into a human rubber-band.
O'Brien reformed his criminal ways after gaining his Plastic Man abilities.
He was invited to join the JLA by Batman. When the JLA members were split into their hero and civilian identities, it was "Eel" O'Brien who gathered the civilians to re-merge with their hero alter-egos because he did not want to return to a life of crime.
Plastic Man was shattered in the distant past when the JLA went to rescue Aquaman and the time-displaced Atlantis. He spent thousands of years in pieces at the bottom of the ocean and retained his sanity.
