Mr. Freeze was a supervillain and an enemy of Batman. He had the misfortune of not being able to tolerate temperatures above zero degrees, so he was forced to spend his life inside a refrigeration suit.
Powers and Abilities
- Cannot Survive outside of a Sub-Zero Environment: Freeze has to wear a special refrigeration suit, unless he's in Antarctica or something...otherwise he'll die.
In college, he meets a woman named Nora, whom he falls in love with and ultimately marries. Nora later falls terminally ill. Freeze takes on a job working for a large company run by the ruthless Ferris Boyle. Freeze discovers a way to put Nora into cryo-stasis (using company equipment without permission), and places her in that state hoping to sustain her until a cure could be found. Boyle finds out about the experiment and attempts to have her brought out of cryo-stasis, overruling Freeze's frantic objections. A struggle ensues, in which Boyle kicks Freeze into a table full of chemicals and leaves him for dead. Freeze survives, but his body temperature is lowered dramatically; he can now only live at subzero temperatures and is thus forced to wear a special refrigerating suit to stay alive. As Mr. Freeze, he uses cryonic technology to create a gun, which fires a beam that freezes any target within its range.
His first act as a costumed criminal is to take revenge upon Boyle, a plan with which Batman interferes. Mr. Freeze fires his freeze-gun at Batman, but he dodges, causing the beam to shatter Nora's capsule. Freeze blames Batman, and swears to destroy whatever the Dark Knight holds dear (mainly Gotham City, and eventually Robin). Freeze's crimes tend to involve freezing everyone and everything he runs into so he hardly ever forges alliances with the other criminals in Gotham, preferring to work alone.
