Comic Cards Project: Day 4 • Elasti-Girl

adminArt, ComicsLeave a Comment

Elasti-Girl might be the most glamorous superhero ever. She was a gold medal-winning Olympic swimmer who became a movie star before gaining the ability to expand and shrink her body at will. Once she had super powers, she was invited to join Robotman, Negative Man, and The Chief in the dysfunctional super group, The Doom Patrol. The Doom Patrol was an unusual series for the time, with a quirky tone featuring elements of humor and a team that quarreled amongst themselves. Originally, The Doom Patrol had dull green and brown uniforms but Elasti-Girl got credit for designing the hipper red, purple, and white ones. Maybe she should try out for Project Runway.
