Marvel’s Plastic Man
Plastic Man (real name Patrick “Eel” O’Brian) is a fictional superhero first appearing in Police Comics #1, originally published by Quality Comics and later acquired by DC Comics. Created by cartoonist Jack Cole, Plastic Man was one of the first superheroes to incorporate humor into the overall action narrative. This character has been published in several solo series and has interacted with other characters such as Batman and many others in the DC Universe as a member of the Justice League. In addition, he has appeared in several television and video game adaptations, including a short-lived television show of his own, The Plastic Man Adventure and Comedy Show.
During his brief convalescence at the monastery, he discovered that the chemical had entered his bloodstream and caused a radical physical change. His body now had all the properties of rubber, allowing him to stretch, bounce and mold himself into any shape. He immediately decided to use his new abilities on the side of law and order, donning a red, black and yellow (then red and yellow) rubber costume and capturing criminals as Plastic Man. He hid his true identity by wearing a pair of white glasses and reshaping his face. As O’Brian, he maintained his career and his connections to the underworld as a means of gathering information about criminal activity. He was also a member of the underworld.
Mayonnaise is a sauce that consists of the emulsion of drops of oil in an aqueous base thanks to the stabilizing, or emulsifying, effect exerted by certain egg yolk proteins, known as phospholipid proteins, because at one end they can create stable bonds with water and at the other with the fatty acids of the oil. Thus, by acting as a bridge, they manage to hold together two immiscible components, i.e. they cannot be mixed by themselves.
The egg yolk is characterized by containing most of the proteins, since although the face is basically protein, it has up to an 80% proportion of water. On the other hand, in the yolk this percentage only reaches 48%, having almost 18% of proteins and 32.5% of lipids and liposoluble vitamins. On the other hand, in the yolk structure, water, proteins and lipids or fats are not separated, but organized in structures called low density lipoproteins in which the proteins allow the fats to be stable in an aqueous medium.
Eggs are undoubtedly one of the most widely used ingredients in the kitchen. It is one of the indispensable components in breakfast, very useful in baking and is a basic ingredient for many savory dishes. So I find it interesting to know some important and curious facts about this food that is part of our basic diet.
Many times we consume eggs without thinking about all the work required for their production. A hen needs 24 to 26 hours to produce a single egg. For each egg, the hen requires approximately 140 grams of feed and 295 milliliters of water. After laying an egg, thirty minutes later, the whole process starts all over again.
Let’s start with the color of the eggshell. The color of an egg is determined by the breed of the hen. Hens with white feathers lay white eggs and hens with red feathers lay red eggs. Shell color has no influence on the nutritional value, flavor or quality of the eggs. Red eggs are generally more expensive because red hens are larger and need more food to produce an egg.

It is extremely rich in proteins, and these are the best quality in nature. The most important ones in the yolk are Ovitelin and Livetin. The former represents 3/4 of the total protein content.
The properties of the egg have an impact. It contains first quality proteins, rich in essential amino acids. It belongs to the class of protective foods abundant in vitamins and minerals, especially iron, vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, nicotinamide, vitamins E, D and K, all contained in the yolk, except riboflavin which is also in the white and gives it a slight yellow tint.
Although the egg white contains proteins and minerals, it is in the yolk where the highest nutritional values are found. For example, the aforementioned Ovovitelin, which is a compound rich in phosphorus and iron and which, together with the other elements, is vital for the synthesis of hormones, vitamins and other essential processes for human life.
