In the Iron Man Animated Series Universe, the Mandarin led a group of villains, consisting of Dreadknight, Hypnotia, Elastika, Blizzard (Donny Gill), Blacklash, Grey Gargoyle, Whirlwind, MODOK and Justin Hammer against Iron Man (Tony Stark) and his team, based on Force Works.

Elastika was employed by the Mandarin to abduct Rachel Carpenter, imitating her best friend Leslie. She displayed an arch sense of humor about doing so.


Elastika possesses the superhuman power to take on the appearance and voice of other people, needing nothing but a photograph for reference to do so. She was engulfed in a halo of red light when doing so.

  • She bears similarity to Hypnotia, who is also used by the Mandarin to dupe people. She also seems similar to the G.I. Joe character Zarana.

She appeared once briefly before being written out in favor of Hypnotia, for whom she may be mistaken. Her name is taken from the credits.
