#150 The Ventriloquist & Scarface

First Appearance - Detective Comics #583  (Feb 1988)

Arnold Wesker is a ventriloquist with multiple personalities. His puppet is a gangster named Scarface. Under the puppet's psychological influence, Wesker is a dangerous and ruthless criminal and crime boss. It has been implied that the Ventriloquist suffers from multiple personality disorder. Wesker was originally a timid orphan whose deep repression erupted into a barroom brawl, resulting in him being sent to Blackgate Prison. There he encountered the ventriloquist dummy Scarface and promptly murdered the man who'd carved the dummy. The two are now inseparable, directing a series of criminal activities. While most believe that Scarface is a tool by Wesker is simply acting out a dark side to his personality, the Ventriloquist sees himself as a reluctant lackey who is forced to do Scarface's bidding.

Scarface became the vehicle through which Wesker could express all of his years of bottled up rage. It was clear early on however, that Scarface was the dominant partner in their relationship, and Wesker always maintained a subservient and obedient countenance. Wesker let Scarface do the dirty work, including robbery and murder. He became dominated by Scarface, who barked orders at him and degraded him with verbal abuse. Wesker was also unable to enunciate the letter "B" while throwing his voice, and replaced them with the letter "G" instead. For example, Scarface often calls Batman "Gatman."

It has never been clear whether Scarface was actually just an aspect of Wesker’s Multiple Personality Disorder, or if he had actually somehow gained sentience. There have been several instances where Scarface has functioned independently of a human controller, but this may also be a reflection of the controller's mental state at the given moment. On occasion, Scarface has been animate during times when Wesker was asleep or unconscious, or not even present at all. (from batman.wikia.com)

#141 Crazy Quilt

First Appearance - Boy Commandos #15, (1946)

Crazy-Quilt is a noted painter who leads a double-life as a master criminal. He gives the plans for his crimes to various henchmen through clues left in his paintings. His criminal empire crashes to a halt when one of his henchmen double-crosses him and sets him up to be arrested. Blinded by a gunshot wound, he is sent to prison, where he volunteers for an experimental procedure that restores his vision. This is combined with a special helmet fused to his optic nerves.

The procedure works to a point, but has a tragic side effect: he can see, but the colors are blindingly vivid and disorienting. It drives him mad, and upon his release he takes on the guise of Crazy-Quilt. He is stopped first by the Boy Commandos, but has since had encounters with Batman, Batgirl and two Robins, Dick Grayson and Jason Todd.

Crazy-Quilt's sight is restored briefly for a time after he kidnaps a surgeon to assist him. Batman and Grayson intervene. In self defense, Robin reflects the madman's light beams back into his newly restored eyes. Unintentionally, Quilt is permanently blinded. Obsessing over his young adversary, he becomes one of the few bat-villains to hate Robin more than his mentor. This extends to Graysons' successors in the role. Later, thinking to enact his revenge upon Grayson, he mistakenly takes out his aggression on Jason Todd, who was new to the role at the time. Todd is nearly beaten to death. Again, it is Robin who is pivotal to stopping Crazy Quilt's plans.

Crazy-Quilt has a helmet that allows him to hypnotize his victims using flashing lights of various colors. It can also project lethal laser beams, blinding lights, and functions as artificial eyes since his own eyes no longer function; the lenses feed their input signal straight into his brain.

However, in doing so, he ended up neglecting his own son. Tired of being dumped to the care of Howard Lewis, the center's librarian and sculptor, Kenny turned his rage on those who had been bullying or abusing teenagers.

Dubbing himself Payback, Kenny cast himself in the role of a vigilante on par with Batman, or so he liked to think.

Kenny had access to his father's Vidlinks sessions, which he used to select his victims. Then, he engaged employers, teachers, and parents ― anyone whom the patients complained about during counseling.After listening to Terry McGinnis' rant about Bruce Wayne, Payback chose the latter as his next target.

After serving his term, Deadshot begins hiring his services out as an assassin, changing his costume from the top coat and tails he previously wore to a red jumpsuit and distinctive metal face plate with a targeting device on the right side.

There have been no less than 6 people to adopt the Clayface name.

He donned the mask of Clayface, the villain he played in the movie, and began killing the new cast and crew. Before long, he was apprehended by the dynamic duo and left to rot in Arkham Asylum.

Other criminals adopted his persona, but with a strange twist. Sondra Fuller's (Clayface 4 aka. Lady Clayface) clay-like body was able to change shapes, and Preston Payne's (Clayface 3) corrosive body could melt others with a touch. This duo eventually broke Karlo out of prison.
