Behind the scenes

  • In the comics, Clayface is a name used by multiple criminals, the most notorious being Basil Karlo.
    • It can be presumed that this version of Clayface is likely an amalgamation of Preston Payne and Cassius Payne, the third and fourth Clayface respectively. This is mainly due to the fact that, in the comics, Preston also has a son with similar abilities whilst Cassius is the surname of this unnamed Clayface's son.
