This is not a comic I’ve read, but, my ears perked up when you were wondering about the liquid in Clayface’s cave. That, I think, refers to the origin story of the Silver Age Clayface, “The Challenge of Clayface” in Detective Comics #298, cover-dated December 1961. In that story, treasure hunter/explorer Matt Hagen had discovered a cave containing a pool of mysterious liquid, into which he fell, turning him into the clay-human figure of Clayface. He found that, by focusing his mind, he could transform into anything he could imagine, and pursued a life of crime. He also realized, over time, that his power needed to be renewed periodically by returning to that pool. Silver Age, baby! Nothing like it!
