If you think Plastic Man from DC comics is hilarious then you need to know about Bouncing Boy.

As in the name, Bouncing Boy has a special power to inflate into a giant ball and bounce around.

Chuck Taine aka Bouncing Boy is a member of the “Legion of Superheroes” on earth and was created by Jerry Siegel & Jim Mooney.

Born without any superpower, Chuck worked for a scientist in 30th-century earth and drank a plastic fluid in his lab as he thought it was soda.

This unexpected fluid made his body into a spongy round shaped ball. Chuck decided to join “The Legion of Superheroes” and is a handy superhero to be around.

With his giant ball-like body combined with near invulnerability and speed, This fat superhero can take down most of his opponents but it kinda looks funny when he does that.

A person bouncing off a wall multiple times and dashing other people is something to watch at.

If the current DCEU wants to go with a lighter tone in their movies then can try him out. I bet with the right direction and script, Bouncing Boy will be super hilarious to watch.

First things first, Superman doesn’t get fast by eating alone. As we all knew, He is powered by solar energy.

Clart Kent’s metabolism is so good that it can digest anything he eats into atoms. Yeah, That’s how powerful his digestive system is.

When Superman drank the Scarlet Nectar, An unexpected change occurred in his body. Thanks to his invulnerability, The poison does not kill him but the side effects are ridiculous.

The Man of Steel became the “Man of Fat.”

Not only Superman, but Superboy also got fat on a couple of occasions when he was exposed to Red Kryptonite radiation and Alien Rays, but Clark Kent’s portrayal of being fat is funny.

He even flee away from earth so that people wouldn’t identify him but a plane full of passengers did it tho.

Another instance is when Superman got into a telephone booth to change identities from Clark Kent to Superman, He got fat.

This is due to the radiation experiments conducted in it. The people of Metropolis called him “The Two-Ton Superman!”
