Elasti-Girl is a fictional comic book superheroine appearing in books published by DC Comics, primarily as a member of the Doom Patrol. Created by writers Bob Haney and Arnold Drake, and artist Bruno Premiani, the character first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 (June 1963).
The character was ranked 88th in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.
Rita Farr is an Olympic swimming gold medalist turned Hollywood actress who is exposed to unusual volcanic gases while shooting a film in Africa. When Farr recovers, she discovers that she can expand or shrink her body at will—from hundreds of feet tall to mere inches in height. When she gains greater control of her powers, she discovers that she can enlarge one limb at a time.
Although not physically disfigured, Rita initially has no control over her size changes, is considered a freak and a menace, and becomes a recluse, leaving her Hollywood career in ruins. However, Rita is approached by Dr. Niles Caulder (also known as The Chief) who offers her a place among fellow "freaks" attempting to use their powers for good. As Elasti-Girl, she joins Caulder's team, the Doom Patrol. Rita falls in love with, and marries, Steve Dayton, the hero Mento. Later on, the couple adopts young Gar Logan, who would become the Teen Titans' Beast Boy.
