In the sewers below Gotham City the Young Justice team tracks and fights the new character of Clayface (who was introduced in last month’s issue). The team soon discovers the difficulty in fighting a villain who can assume the shape and mannerisms of anyone he comes into contact with.
Although it’s a bit of a letdown after a terrific Batman and Robin issue and well-done Talia al Ghul issue that introduced the character of Clayface, Young Justice #13 continues to define this new version of Clayface and bring Aqualad’s indecision to the forefront as the team is bested far too easily by this new enemy. It will be interesting to see if Aqualad’s story plays out in similar fashion to the similar arc on the television show or if the comic takes a different path beginning next month. Worth a look.
