Quote1 For years, it was just the two of us; Nora and Dora, Dora and Nora, sisters, inseparable ... until he came along, Victor Fries. I tried to be happy for them, but when Nora got sick, Victor wouldn't let her die in peace. He should have been destroyed, as ... as every costumed menace should be destroyed! Quote2
Dora Smithy src
Dora Smithy is the sister of Nora Fries and therefore, sister-in-law of Victor Fries, most commonly known as Mister Freeze.

Nora landed a job at the Gotham City Police Department as Commissioner Gordon's secretary.[1] During that time, she managed to steal a device that belonged to Mr. Freeze and that was storaged in the Evidence Vault. With the device, Dora vanished all men in Gotham with the purpose of getting rid of all the costumed criminals. However, her plan was accidentally thwarted by Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, who managed to steal the device from the evidence vault, along with many other items.[2]

After failing in her first attempt, Dora decided to change tactics and this time she replaced Commissioner Gordon with a robot clone, in order to run the police department from behind the scenes. While the robot clone was in command, the police acquired a tough attitude against all costumed people, vigilantes and criminals alike.[3]

Batgirl made an alliance with Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy in order to unravel the mystery behind the latest events in Gotham.[4] She found the truth about Gordon being a robot clone and then she also discovered that it was Dora who was responsible for all that happened. Batgirl, with assistance from Renee Montoya confronted Nora in her hideout and saved the real Commissioner Gordon. Dora explained them that her only goal was to elminate all costumed criminals, just like her sister's husband. When Gordon told her that she was no better than the criminals she hated, she panicked and fell to a vat of cryo-solution, that changed her body permanently. She was locked inside Arkham Asylum, in a special cell, much like the one used for Mr. Freeze. Dora was transformed after the accident; her eyes turned red and she needed to be in a cold temperature.[5]


  • Deception: The Gotham Police Department and Batgirl were deceived by Dora, who was the responsible for many crimes while working as a member of the GCPD.
  • Tactical Analysis: She is able to elaborate complex plans to achieve her ultimate goals.


  • Mental Illness: Her hatred towards costumed criminals turned her into one of them.[5]


  • Cryo-Suit: A variation of Mr. Freeze's suit that enhanced her strength and fighting skills.
