|Bios - Matt Hagen / Clayface
|Voiced By: Ron Perlman
First Appearance: "Feat of Clay, Pt. 1"
Bio: Matt Hagen was a well-known movie actor. Badly disfigured in
an automobile accident, he was rushed to the Gotham burn clinic. At the
clinic Hagen was approached by Roland Daggett, a crooked businessman
looking for test subjects for his "miracle product" RenuYou. Daggett
promised the product could restore Hagen's features within minutes as
compared to the years of plastic surgery he would have to endure. The
only problem was that this drug was not FDA approved and highly
addictive. In exchange for the product, Daggett forced Hagen to commit
crimes. When Hagen finally refused to do any more of Daggett's dirty
work, the supply of RenuYou was cut off. Crazed for the drug, Hagan
broke into the Renu You plant where he Daggett's henchmen poured gallons
of the untested toxic chemical down Hagen's throat.
Instead of dying from an overdose, the chemical soaked every cell in
Hagen's body, transforming him into a hideous man of clay. An enraged
Hagen vowed to destroy Roland Daggett. What Hagen did not realize was
that his new cellular structure allowed him to change his shape and
appearance. He could form anything he wanted just by thinking it. As a
living shapeshifter, he became the evil Clayface. As one of Batman's
most bizarre and difficult criminals to handle, it takes great measures
to apprehend Clayface. When caught, he was deemed insane and a special
suit was designed to hold him in Arkham Asylum (Although he was believed
to have died in the episode "Mudslide").
