My instinct is that he makes balloon animals.

 

I've also wanted to have a hero with

No money perk. He's just really skilled at being a billionaire. 

Big fan of the Blue and Gold (Blue Beetle and Booster Gold during the JLI days)?

I’ve always made my stretchers chemists. How else are they going to gain their powers?

About the same way as anyone else in comic books. A wizard's spell backfires and turns a bystander into Strech Guy. He gets dunked in a vat of radioactive liquid rubber. Aliens abduct him, take him apart on a molecule level, then put him back together in a way which is not compatible with what he was before, but they did save his life after all. Infused with Chaos Magic.

I went super-old school with my first stretchy guy.  (Remember I don't have much of a comics background, but I used to love the old action pulps and their various Bantam and Baen reprints and novelizations).  The first one I did was the honest to goodness Indian (India-Indian; not Asian Immigrant / Native American) Rubber Man.

 

But yeah-- they can get their  powers the same way anyone else does.  I think-- hang on.

 

 

Yep.  Google shows a lot of chemical vats (and one soda?!) in the origins of the stretchy guys of comics.  But I see that Fantastic Four .  Crap-- another google.  Mr. Fantastic-- anyway, it says he was radiation, so why not?  Or a curse, or an amulet, or that "nontoxic" label on Silly Putty wasn't _quite_ accurate....

 

 

Run with whatever, Dude.    :D

I'm out of rep, but I wanted to let you know that cost me a healthy mouthful of coffee.   :D

The key element here is not how s/he got the powers but rather what occupation is the most common.  the first 4 stretching heroes that come to my mind are:


A scientist/public Hero

A former criminal/turned Fed agent

A detective/public hero

Newspaper photographer/cub reporter/another hero's "Pal"
