Q: Did Plastic Man radically change appearance? I’m familiar with the red suit, but who’s the rotund polka-dotted chap?
Rotund?! We prefer “big-boned!”
That’s Woozy Winks, Plastic Man’s longtime sidekick and best friend. Like Plas himself, Woozy is a reformed criminal who is now working for the good guys. Like a lot of Golden Age sidekicks, he’s goofy and bumbling and mostly there for comic relief. UNLIKE most Golden Age sidekicks, though, Woozy has managed to hang around pretty much since his first appearance in Police Comics #13 (Nov. 1942).
