Real Name: Otto Von Furth
Search for 'Plasmus' on Amazon

With his radioactive and chemically-converted body, Plasmus' touch can bring a fiery death onto his opponents reverting them to a protoplasmic state. The touch has no cure and no one has withstood it. Plasmus can also loosen his cells so that bullets can't hurt him. He is also able to gather his body if it is scattered while in its less cohesive state. In a certain sense, he is almost identical to the sinister Preston Payne, the third Clayface. Both can, as noted above, melt people into protoplasmic jelly, are little less than inhuman themselves, and have a great deal of control above their bodies.

Otto Von Furth was a mine worker in East Berlin, Germany until an unexpected cave-in trapped him and four fellow miners for seven days. During those days, Otto's co-workers died, leaving him as the only survivor. He and his fellow miners had been mining for radioactive radium and ended up exposed to it and when rescued, he was rushed to the hospital. Otto was later kidnapped by Ex-Nazi General Zahl who mutated him into a blob-like state. With his anger, Otto became Plasmus. His body changed into an unstable protoplasm and he was brought into the Brotherhood of Evil where he took the name Plasmus. He and the Brotherhood of Evil fought the Teen Titans on different occasion where he enjoys fighting and regretting not being the one to kill General Zahl. The rest of the Brotherhood of Evil reformed into the Society of Sin. He was later recruited into Lex Luthor's Suicide Squad where he died fighting Imperiex.
