    Chasing Clay last edited by deactivated-62e5b6c75b65e on 07/14/22 02:10PM View full history

    First Appearance of Cameron Chase! When the Clayfaces create a new, eerie version of themselves, Batman joins forces with Chase, a detective who specializes in hunting paranormals. It's an uneasy partnership at best, which may give the Clayfaces the edge they need.

    A scientist studying Clayface (05 - Cassius) was attacked by a "sample" taken from the child. The doctor was overtaken by the clay entity, giving him the ability to melt things from a distance. It headed toward Gotham City to find its parents. D.E.O. (Department of Extra-normal Operations) agent Cameron Chase was assigned to "Clay-Thing." Batman got to her at the cave where he was born and learned what she knew. They confronted it at Arkham Asylum. Clay-Thing liquidized before them.

    (Includes bound-in, perforated D.E.O. file card sheet featuring Cameron Chase, Batman, Claything and Catwoman.)

H. Williams III [J3]...
