"Clayface is back!"
Batman: And this girl was his first victim!
"You, Batman, will be his next!"
Writer Len Wein and artist Marshall Rogers vividly depicted Batman's battle with the third Clayface. Preston Payne was an acromegalic - a victim of chronic hyperpituitarism that distorted his body. He believed that he had found a cure after securing a blood sample from the second Clayface, Matt Hagen. But instead of curing Payne, it metabolized his degenerative condition so much that he developed a corrosive touch, which he used to infect others whenever a tremendous fever raged within him. After turning several bodies into oozing puddles of protoplasm, the new Clayface incurred the Dark Knight's wrath.
