Eel O'Brien was small time gangster who was in the middle of a heist with his friends. As he was unlocking the safe, a guard caught wind of their crime and tried to stop him. One of his friends shot the guard and the guard shot back, but missed and hit the container of a chemical gas that spread towards Eel. It burned his skin, severely injuring him. While escaping in car, his friends betrayed him and chucked him out of the car, leaving him to die, however the gas didn't kill him and instead gave him the powers of elasticity, turning him into Plastic Man.
