First appearance



Plastique (by Jesus Saiz)

In her first appearance, Plastique attempted a suicide bombing against the New York Herald-Express with a set of bombs attached to her costume, only to have the original Firestorm disarm her by vaporizing her clothes, leaving her naked and while Firestorm took the bombs to explode in a safer area.

Later, via genetic modification commissioned by her organization, Plastique gained the power to project explosive force from her body. Later, Plastique and the group she'd gathered for this particular attempted to destroy the Canadian Parliament Buildings in Ottawa and the Statue of Liberty in New York City, as well as personally attempting the assassinations of the American President and Canadian Prime Minister. The bombings of the two landmarks were thwarted, and Plastique herself personally captured on live international television, by Captain Atom.

Suicide Squad

Plastique became a member of the Suicide Squad for the duration of a single mission. She attempted to betray the team during their second field operation in Qurac under the command of Amanda Waller, and was caught by Nemesis, and brainwashed to suppress all memories of her Squad participation.

Plastique then became a mercenary who actually reformed, subsequently earning a pardon from the United States for her crimes there based on services rendered to the "Captain Atom Project", as well as a somewhat more subdued response along similar lines from the Canadian authorities.


Plastique then became engaged to Captain Atom, although the engagement was effectively broken in the wake of events of Armageddon: 2001. Following his reappearance the engagement was renewed and Plastique was invited into the ranks of the "Extreme Justice" faction of the Justice League, and celebrated a bachelorette party.

Signalman informs Black Lightning, that Plastique had teamed with the Electrocutioner in a partnership known as the Bomb Squad. The duo has subsequently been among a series of costumed villains that had disappeared, seemingly into thin air. Bette resurfaced as a member of the Suicide Squad after the incident with Captain Atom in Bludhaven. Apparently, she and her husband are separated leading her to have a "devil may care" attitude.

52 and Countdown

Suicide Squad Raise The Flag 7

During the 34th week of the series 52, Plastique and the Electrocutioner appear as part of a Suicide Squad operation against Black Adam. She later appeared, in opposition of an illegal incarnation of the Suicide Squad.

In Countdown, she again appears with the Suicide Squad to apprehend Trickster and Pied Piper.

A chunk of Cordex, a military brand of plastic explosives. Highly stable, very destructive. Includes a timer.

Plastic Explosives or Plastique is an explosives in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics and a cut content weapon in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

Plastique was used for decades prior to the War as a mining tool, and is still useful for removing inconvenient nature. Like its more primitive cousin, Dynamite, Plastique is both a tool and a weapon. In this case, it takes the form of a large wad of Cordex, a military-grade blasting agent. It has been fitted with a blasting cap, itself wired to a timer. Although an antenna projects from the detonator assembly, there is no provision for remote detonation. As for man-made obstructions, plastique can also remove many types of doors.

Differences with Dynamite

Plastic explosive is, pound for pound, more powerful than dynamite, causing 40-80 points of damage, and sports a wider blast radius. Correspondingly, plastic explosive is more expensive than dynamite.


Plastic explosive is harder to come by when scrounging, but military facilities often have at least a few charges in stock. Most shops do not carry plastic explosives, even if they carry dynamite. In terms of shopping, the best bet is to try higher-end weapons shops. Along with their big-ticket guns may be a few bundles of plastique.

Applicable Perks

Demolition Expert

Players disposed to using plastic explosive, as well as the more docile dynamite, would benefit from gaining the Demolition Expert perk. With this perk, the player will never have a premature detonation (which will ruin the timed-patrol tactic), and the explosive used will deal an additional 10 points of damage.
