|Dr. Victor Fries|
|Appeared in||Batman & Robin|
- "In this universe, there's only one absolute... everything freezes!"
- ―Mr. Freeze [src]
Dr. Victor Fries was trying to cure his wife Nora of McGregor's Syndrome but fell into the cryogenics tank mutating him, he took up the identity of Mr. Freeze now having to stay in his suit to stay cold.
Victor Fries fell into a vat of liquid nitrogen one day, and lived. In an effort to cure his wife, Nora, from dying from a strange illness, he began robbing museums of large diamonds, planning to use them to create a large scale freeze gun to freeze Gotham, holding it ransom for billions, allowing him to compete his research for her cure. He was stopped by Batman and Robin, but escaped.
At a jewlery auction, Freeze returned and robbed a large diamond necklace. Batman and Robin followed and captured him, imprisoning Freeze in Arkham Asylum.
Freeze was then broken out of the asylum by Poison Ivy and Bane. Back at Freeze's hideout, Poison Ivy disconnects the cable in the nitrogen chamber that is keeping Freeze's wife alive. Claiming Batman killed her, Freeze vowed revenge on him and, at Ivy's urging, humanity itself. He thus continued his plan to freeze Gotham and kill the population.
While fighting Batman for control of the Gotham telescope, he converted to a freeze gun, Freeze is thrown fifteen feet off of a platform, breaks his helmet, and is expoosed to warm light, weakening him. After Batman revealed Ivy's deception, he comforted Freeze that his wife wasn't dead, but moved to Arkham with her systems restored, where Freeze can continue his research. Appealing to Freeze's healing nature as a doctor and a good man, Batman asked him for a cure for the first stages of his wife's illness to save Bruce Wayne's dying friend, Alfred Pennyworth. The tearful Freeze complies and is sent to Arkham, with Poison Ivy as his cell mate, who's life he promises to make a living hell.
