|Appeared in||Batman: Feat of Clay|
Roland Daggett is a crooked businessman in Gotham, responsible for the creation of Clayface.
Roland Daggett was the owner and CEO of Daggett Industries, which specialized in chemicals among other things. The company was large enough to compete with Wayne Enterprises, but Daggett preferred to undermine his competition from the inside. To do so, he needed help.
Daggett's scientists developed the Renuyu cream, a cream that allowed the wearer to reconfigure his or her face to whatever he or she wanted by loosening the facial cells of the user, and presented it as a skin conditioner. Secretly, the cream was addictive and fatal in larger doses; this did not deter Daggett from trying to secure a future for it as his flagship product. When stores in Gotham refused to market Renuyu because of its harmful effects, Daggett realized he still had a chance, by overtaking Wayne Industries through insider trading. He then employed the talents of actor Matt Hagen, who was disfigured in an accident years before, and who had been an addict of Renuyu for such a time, always remaining at Daggett's side for more of the cream. Daggett had Hagen impersonate Bruce Wayne and attempt to acquire the evidence Wayne Enterprises had built against him by eliminating Lucius Fox.
The job was foiled when Batman arrived on the scene. Irritated and concerned that Fox could incriminate Daggett by revealing what he carried in is suitcase that night, Daggett ordered the assassination of Hagen. Germs and Raymond Bell, who captured Hagen when the he broke into Daggett Labs for more of the Renuyu formula, did not kill Hagen outright, but hyper-exposed him to the chemical by forcing him to ingest an entire canister of Renuyu, unintentionally but severely changing the man's cellular structure.
Daggett continued his plan to take over Wayne Enterprises to acquire its marketing network. With Hagen out of the way, he revised his takeover plan, and ordered Germs to assassinate Lucius. Meanwhile, Daggett began to heavily advertise the Renuyu cream. In an interview with Summer Gleeson, he showed the amazing properties of the chemical, and impressed many potential buyers: a potential that was lost when Clayface revealed himself from the audience and displayed the chemical's dangerous properties. Though Batman arrived and stopped Clayface, Daggett was arrested for his criminal acts.
