APRIL: Bette Kane – Batman comics’ first incarnation of Batgirl (called “Bat-Girl” originally) – debuted in BATMAN #139.

JUNE: Batman and Robin are briefly turned into aliens in BATMAN #140.

DECEMBER: The Matt Hagen version of Clayface (called “Clay-Face” in this issue) was first featured in DETECTIVE COMICS#298. Unlike the original Clayface, Basil Karlo (who was an actor who wore disguises), the Hagen incarnation of the character was actually “clay” who could morph himself into just about anything he imagined. Hagen received this shape-shifting power after he accidentally fell into radioactive pool of protoplasm.
