With Plastic Man's identity out in the open, the FBI attempt to subdue and capture him using acetone and an extremely cold air conditioning system. As Plastic Man escapes through the ventilation system, he freezes, allowing them to transport him safely to a morgue freezer. Uncertain as to whether or not he has to breathe, they call the JLA for consultation. They tell him that he does, so they decide to have the police cart him down to the meat packing district. But, before they can get him there, he escapes from his bodybag prison.
