The Arkham Sessions, Ep. 53: “Mudslide”

The last time we discussed Clayface, we compared his dependency on “Renuyu” –the substance he uses to transform his flesh– to an addiction.  Much like untreated substance use disorders, Clayface’s condition has worsened over time, and the people who care about him are worried. When we see him in the episode “Mudslide,” he’s barely able to keep it together–literally!  His level of functioning has declined, and his partner and caretaker Stella is equally desperate to save him from completely falling apart. His only hope for survival appears to be yet another chemical.  And while Batman is once again offering to help Clayface, it has to be under the “right” conditions.

In this episode of The Arkham Sessions, we explore the lovable villain Clayface in his sobering last appearance on Batman: The Animated Series. Click the link below for more of this analysis!
