Nora Fields was born in 1943. At age 23, just after graduating from college, she was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. Her family decided, rather than let her die at 25, to cryogenically preserve her, in the hopes that in the future a cure would be found. She was stored in a Wayne Enterprises facility.
Victor Fries did his PhD on her stasis, and fell in love with her. Believing her to be his wife, he spent more and more time with her, until the authorities came to take her away.
Nora Fries, born Nora Fields, was the wife of scientist Victor Fries until she was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Unable to bear losing his beloved wife, Victor decided to cryogenically preserve her, in the hopes that in the future he would find a way to cure her. She was stored in a Wayne Enterprises facility. Victor devoted his life to curing Nora, becoming the supervillain Mister Freeze in the process.
During Nora's time in cryostasis, Victor was searching for a way to cure her of her deathly disease. After experimenting on multiple women, Victor was able to revive Nora and cure her of her condition by turning her into his likeness.
After revival, Nora understood and embraced Victor's lifestyle of being a villain, going by the name "Mrs. Freeze." Eventually, she began to see Victor as a bother for wanting her to give up the new life she just accepted. She parted ways with him by force and decided to continue her new life in crime.
