Mister Freeze


"First I toy, then I destroy!"

During a fight in his secret laboratory some years ago, a Doctor Schimmel was covered in an experimental chemical he had been working with. Batman tried to save him, but the damage had already been done. The freezing chemical had somehow bonded with his body, and he could no longer survive in any temperature higher than fifty degrees below zero. From then on, he referred to himself only as Mister Freeze. His condition requires him to wear a cooling suit whenever he leaves his icy lair. Freeze's warped mind blamed Batman for all that had happened to him, and immediately vowed revenge.

Ever since he escaped from prison, Freeze has been trying to destroy Batman. He also often tries to freeze other people, or sometimes all of Gotham City. Though whether this is because he wants others to suffer as he suffers, or if he is only looking for companionship, is unknown. The mental damage has also caused him to go through extreme changes in his temperament. He almost seems like a different person each time he faces Batman and Robin, sometimes cruel, sometimes goofy, and sometimes almost kindhearted.

Known Associates

Just as Batman and Robin do not go at crime-fighting alone, Gotham City's most notorious villains need fellow partners in crime to assist them with their malicious schemes.

Chill, Shivers, Frosty- henchmen.

Glacia Glaze- also a world famous ice skating star. Her real name is Emma Strunk.

Frosty, Chillblaine- henchmen. It's hard to tell whether or not it is the same Frosty.

Isuldur- Freeze's pet homing seal. Likes a nice fresh fish.

Kolwater- Freeze's personal butler. He did not get involved in any of the criminal activity.

Nippy, Chill, Moe- henchmen. They often sat down with their boss and had a good meal while he watched from his cold area.


To some people villainy is a job; but, unlike the rest of the law-abiding citizens of Gotham City, villains do not work in an office, factory, or from their own homes. They must establish a 'hideout' from which they can organize and orchestrate their evil deeds.


From time to time, those nasty villains would resort to insults. What follows are the names used by Mister Freeze.
