Wait a minute! Plastic Man is 75 years old today?! But he looks great — sometimes even better than ever! How does he do it?
Hey, don’t look at me — blame Kyle Baker.
I’ve mentioned before how I don’t think much of Plastic Man being portrayed as a lascivious lech, but for some reason when Woozy does it I find it hilarious. And really, that’s got to be one of the best pick-up lines in history.
You might as well forget The Detective right now, Talia – ain’t no way you’re going to resist that ol’ Winks charm.

It’s always interesting to see how different artists interpret “real life” versions of Woozy. Sometimes they even work better than the more cartoony depictions, especially since he almost always come across as crafty more than goofy. Personally, I like something that falls somewhere in between, something that can be used for the more serious stories without leaving Woozy looking out of place, but that still fits in when they want to get silly.
