Retro Records: Plastic Man – The Invasion Of The Plastic Men (1975)

Welcome back friends to another installment of Retro Records. This week we are listening to a 1975 Power Records story featuring none other than Plastic Man! If you think that giving the likes of Ol’ Plaz his own record is a kooky idea then check out who was featured on the B side – none other than Metamorpho: The Element Man!

Of course considering that Plastic Man, that criminal turned malleable and wacky hero was given his own Saturday morning cartoon series four years later starting in 1979 and lasting until 1981 – maybe I was just too young to realize how popular he was back in the day in the then current DC Comics line of books?

Our story today is entitled “The Invasion of the Plastic Men” and finds Plastic Man being falsely accused for returning to a life of crime when numerous citizens began to report they are eyewitnesses to Plaz stealing countless valuables. The question is can Plastic Man clear his name of these heinous deeds? Let’s find out together on Retro Records!
