Synopsis for "Murder on the Mystery Ship"

When asylum-bound former horror star Basil Karlo reads of an International Horror Film Exposition on the luxury ship Varania III, he is enraged at not having been invited. Killing his nurse, he escapes and makes his way to the ship.

Basil Karlo (New Earth) 099

Karlo as Clayface in his heyday

There, in a mock-up of his old dressing room he is confronted by the exposition host, John Carlinger, famed actor and director. Karlo lunges for Carlinger.

Clayface, one of Karlo's most famous horror movie creations, attempts to kill some of the party guests. Fighting with Batman, Batman is forced into a swimming pool to stop a napalm attack. He notices that the makeup on his glove from punching Karlo is gone - he induces that it was, in fact, not Karlo as Clayface, but Carlinger who used the modern pancake-type makeup instead of the old greasepaint Karlo would have been familiar with. After he killed Karlo in the dressing room, Carlinger used Karlo's identity as Clayface to target the three actors preparing to force an audit of his film company finances.
