Mister Freeze is a super-villain enemy of Batman who fights using cold-themed weapons. Formerly a scientist working in cryogenics, he had dedicated his life to finding a cure for his wife Nora Fries' terminal illness. Following a horrible lab accident, he became dependent on sub-zero temperatures to survive and began using his experimental inventions to commit crimes in efforts to fund his research. This also requires an exo-skeleton that keeps him constantly freezing. Losing touch with humanity over time, he eventually turns into a colder and more sadistic psychopath. In his early career, he used the name Mister Zero. He has been a member of the Injustice League and the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Mister Freeze was created by Dave Wood and Sheldon Moldoff, first appearing in Batman #121. (1959)
