Clayface, on Confidence

We mentioned that Confidence is the most essential villainous virtue, but we didn't give any examples. Let's change that, shall we?

"So they think mere guards can stop me? Fools! The utter fools!"
Basil "Clayface" Karlo, "Clayface Walks Again!"

It would be hard to have less reason for confidence than Basil Karlo. He's an over the hill, has-been actor, whose principal weapons are a letter-opener and a make-up kit.

Does he take on Madame Fatal? NO! He tangles with Batman, repeatedly.

Confidence, people.

By the way, if you're ever having a bad day, just find a time and place where you can stand up and say, "Fools! The utter fools!"

It's astonishing how much better it makes you feel.

I always wondered why some of these bad guys didn't just move. "You know, Milwaukee doesn't have any superheroes...hmmm." But I think you've finally explained why.

In my opinion everybody must go through it.
