Elongated Man (DC)
Real Name: Ralph Dibny
Search for 'Elongated Man (DC)' on Amazon


Powers:
Can elongate any part of his body.

Bio:
Intrigued by the “Indian Rubber Men” he saw at carnivals throughout his youth, Ralph Dibny spent years trying to learn their secret. Eventually he noticed that many of the contortionists liked a particular soft drink called Gingold. He isolated the key ingredient—the juice of a little-known tropical fruit called the gingo—and distilled it. By drinking this gingold extract, Dibny gained the ability to stretch any part of his body to fantastic lengths.

Recently, Sue was tragically killed in the couple’s Opal City home. In his grief, Ralph has quit drinking Gingold and given up his powers. He is investigating a resurrection cult, and the mystery of the Helmet of Fate.

Notes:
Has a nephew Billy Warner.
