The Elongated Man possesses the ability to stretch his body into any shape or form to help assist him in solving cases and fighting crime. Originally debuting in 1960’s The Flash #112 Dibny served as a supporting character to the Scarlet Speedster, making it almost fitting that he makes his debut on the CW’s The Flash.
