Clayface from Batman: Arkham Asylum is the ultimate shape-shifting villain

DC Comics’ most renowned changeling is, shall we say, down to earth. Formed from clay to reach an infinite combination of transmutation possibilities, Clayface is a bad guy in his own category. The original Clayface, also known as Basil Karlo, was a B-movie actor who adopted the persona of a character he played in a horror movie in order to plunge into a life of crime. Now we can see why IGN named him the 73rd greatest villain in comic-book history — that’s nothing to sneeze at, right?

Now from the acclaimed 2009 video game Batman: Arkham Asylum comes DC’s 13-inch version of the muddy foe, complete with accessories and interchangeable arms to counter Batman and his allies within the confines of the spooky Arkham institution. Criminally insane or not, this 13-inch Clayface can’t hurt you from his place on your shelf. Just watch your back while you sleep.

We'd like to see an alternate storyline wherein he forms a '90s alt-rock band called Jars of Clayface.
