|Species:||Metahuman (spawn of Clayface)|
|Voiced by:||Francesca Marie Smith|
Annie was a creation of Clayface.
When Clayface plunged into Gotham River, his already damaged body began to further disintegrate. Struggling to maintain his form, he was abruptly surprised when exposure to chemicals leaking into the river from sewage pipes restored his consistence. As a result, his ability to hold his shape began recovering. Clayface was weak, though, and uncertain of his location and surroundings. He created a spawn in the form of a little girl to scout the area and report back to him. However, the girl forgot her purpose shortly after leaving Clayface's proximity, and left the sewer-system to determine her identity.
After recovering, Clayface pursued the girl, adopting the form of a bulky human male. The child, however, became frightened, thinking she was under some kind of attack. Gotham's night life proved to be no friendlier: one eventful evening found the poor girl under attack from gangsters. Robin, however, saved her.
The girl fled, not wanting the help of anyone else, but the Boy Wonder persisted. Eventually, she warmed up to him and revealed her story. Improvising, Robin gave her the name "Annie" based off a Raggedy Anne doll a nearby child was carrying. The two set off to discover her identity. Clues began connecting, and they quickly found themselves back in the sewer-system, where Annie recovered her complete memory. Clayface had been waiting as well, and urged her to rejoin him.
A struggle ensued, but in the end, Annie chose to save Robin by sacrificing herself. Clayface was eventually apprehended, and amongst his charges Robin silently listed murder.
Background information Edit
- As a spawn of Clayface, it's likely Annie had similar powers to his. However, the only ability she displayed was absorbing some of Clayface's body clay into her own physical structure.
- In the Batman Beyond episode "Mind Games", Bruce Wayne has Terry McGinnis look through the profiles of missing children, and one picture has a girl that looks very similar to Annie.
