The Clayface of the show is combination of the first two Clayfaces in that he (like the original Clayface) was an out-of-work actor looking for revenge, and (like the second) he was named Matt Hagen. See more »

This is the history - we'll be seeing at least two more episodes of this character - of "Matt Hagen" a.k.a. "Clayface," an film actor who winds up disfigured after an auto accident and then becomes up addicted to some gooey substance which will transform his face. It's a lot faster than plastic surgery, he's told , and it works great.
The brown goo gives "Hagen" an instant face transplant and he can either go back to being a handsome movie star or be anyone he wants. In this episode, he uses it one time to fake being Bruce Wayne during a crime. Wayne, of course, is innocent, but accused and he/Batman have to prove their innocence.
The problem with the goo, by the way, like a lot of quick fixes, is that it doesn't last and it's addicting, so -Hagan/Clayface keeps going back to the place where the stuff is hidden: in lab belonging to bad guy "Roland Daggett," the guy who wants to take over Wayne Enterprises. It's like a drug, and Hagen has to have it.
Included in this episode is a thug called Bell whom Batman calls a "scumwad." That's a good name; never heard that one before.
Wayne is arrested and put in jail, ending this first part of a two-part episode.
