Clayface (DC)(03 - Preston Payne)
Real Name: Preston Payne
Search for 'Clayface (DC)(03 - Preston Payne)' on Amazon

Superhuman strength (due to exoskeleton he must wear).

Born with a deformity, Preston Payne was shunned his entire life. Since no amount of surgery could repair his disfigurement, Payne eventually approached Matt Hagen [Clayface II] and asked his secret. Hagen would not reveal the source of his powers but finally allowed Payne to draw a sample of his blood. Using this, Payne developed a serum which, instead of curing him, instead caused his body to lose cohesion. Now he must wear an exoskeleton to contain his clay-like flesh and is periodically subject to excruciating "fevers" which can cause anyone he touches to turn to protoplasm.

Father (with Sondra Fuller) of Cassius Payne (Clayface 5).

First Appearance: Detective Comics (1937) #477
