The Doom Patrol
While performing in a movie being filmed on location in Africa, famous actress Rita Farr accidentally inhaled strange volcanic gases. She was ill for days and then began to grow uncontrollably to gigantic size or shrink to tiny size at different times. Overwhelmed by shame and fear, Farr gave up her career and went into hiding.
Eventually, she learned to control her power and was enlisted by Dr. Niles Caulder as a member of his Doom Patrol, a team of super-powerful beings that would help humanity and fight evil. Thus, Farr once again became famous as Elasti-Girl.
Billionaire Steve Dayton, who was also the would-be super-hero Mento, long sought Farr to be his wife. Farr finally accepted, but insisted on remaining an active member of the Doom Patrol. Steve and Rita adopted Garfield Logan, who as Beast Boy was an ally of the Doom Patrol.
Finally, the entire Doom Patrol, including Elasti-Girl, were confronted by their foe Madame Rouge and her ally, former Nazi submarine commander Captain Zahl. Zahl threatened to destroy a small New England fishing village unless the Doom Patrol agreed to be killed instead. Elasti- Girl and her partners courageously declared that they would sacrifice their own lives to save the villagers, and Zahl blew them all up.
