Plastic Man was one of a number of Justice League members who responded to the emergency in Metropolis. He had taken the form of a drill to attempt to tunnel into Metropolis, but found that the force field surrounding the city was a sphere going underground.
With the barrier between them, Plastic Man was unable to help Batgirl in her fight with Match, no matter how much he tried to breach the force field.

As soon as the force field was shut down, Plastic Man bridged the trench that had appeared. Plastic Man noticed the others were some 20 percent smaller. Upon learning they would be regrown, Plastic Man remarked that he was malleable anyway, so it did not matter to him.

As all heroes met up to discuss the next steps, Plastic Man showed Batgirl how the resizing had affected him.
When magnetic field disruptors planted by the Reach threatened the Earth, Plastic Man joined 39 other heroes of Earth in a briefing in Metropolis City. The heroes would use a computer virus provided by Lex Luthor to safely disable the disruptors. The heroes were paired off with another into twenty squads: one member would run interference against weapons guarding the disruptors, allowing the other to get close enough to plant the virus.Plastic Man was assigned to Gamma Squad, and worked alongside Flash.
Within thirty minutes, all squads had succeeded in their mission.
Plastic Man attended an emergency League meeting in which Batman proposed to dissolve the team, as a result of the restrictions placed by the United Nations on their actions. After he tendered his resignation, Plastic Man was among the ones who promptly followed suit, presumably having planned it in advance.
