Origin

A once-famous character actor, Basil Karlo became mentally unstable when one of his classic films was being remade. Assuming the role of a grotesque maniac he once played, Karlo murdered those he felt stood in the way of him regaining his stardom.


Committed to Arkham Asylum, he eventually escaped and teamed with others who had assumed the Clayface identity as the Mud Pack. Using genetic material from his criminal teammates, he forced a scientist to develop a serum that gave him the combined powers of his peers making him the ultimate Clayface.
