Elasti-Girl is a DC Comics superheroine who first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963). Rita Farr was a former Olympic swimmer and famous actress. While shooting a movie in Africa, she was exposed to volcanic gases which gave her the ability to shrink and grow her body at will. She was then approached by Dr. Niles Caulder (alias The Chief) who offered her a place in his Doom Patrol. Farr became Elasti-Girl and used her powers to fight crime along with the other members of the Doom Patrol. During her career as a superhero, she fell in love with Steve Dayton, aka Mento, and they soon marry. Later, they adopt a young Garfield Logan, who would grow up to be Beast Boy.
