Real Name - Dr. Victor Fries
Occupation - Professional Criminal
Based in - Gotham City
Eye Colour - Blue
Hair Colour - None
Height - 6ft 3in
Weight - 190 lbs
First Appearance - batman #121 (February 1959)
Attributes
- Scientific genius, with speciality in cryogenics
- Employs an extensive array of cryo-weaponry
- Permanently altered to survive in a sub-freezing state
- Wears protective freezing armour
- Motivated by grief over the fate of his wife, Nora

Arkham City Bio
Victor Fries was a brilliant cryogenicist whose beloved wife Nora was stricken with a fatal degenerative disease.
He placed her in suspended animation while obsessively searching for a way to cure her; but the corporation that funded his research pulled the plug, triggering an accident that transformed Fries' body into a cold-blooded form that must always be kept below zero. At normal room temperature he will die.
Wielding a number of freezing weapons, he wears protective armour in his quest to somehow bring back his lovely wife and avenge her fate. Since the opening of Arkham City, Mr Freeze has seemingly disappeared.

Additional Information
Mr. Freeze isn't really a true villian: He is focused on curing his wife no matter what the cost, even if it means breaking the law. His cold demenor hides his true love and affection for her which is the essential point to understanding him. He isn't likely to focus on much else unless it gets in the way of his research into a cure for Nora. Even the colourful Joker couldn't get Freeze's attention without stealing his wife first. This obsession with Nora means that he truly only comes into conflict with the Dark Knight when he either breaks the law or he needs something out of Batman. A broken man with not much hope left, one has to wonder what will happen if that hope ever breaks? Thanks to Skare_Krow_.

Possible role in Arkham 3
With Nora now safe with him, Mr Freeze will probably working out a cure for his wife. With the aid of Batman he may perhaps be able to accomplish this, which would be a great storyline for the game, as this has rarely been done before in the comics and other media. Thanks to TheJester.

Essential reading
Batman: Snow; Batman: Mr. Freeze; Gotham Central #1; Batman Adventures: Dangerous Dames & Demons; Battle for the Cowl: Commissioner Gordon and Legends of the Dark Knight: 201 to 203. Thanks to Dr. Strange.

I dont think he will be in Arkham 3. Maybe just a cameo at the most.

Possible Role: There could be many roles for Freeze. He could be making cures for Nora, Batman or he could be working with other characters (Catwoman). Or, he could be a sidekick for Batman, making gadgets for him.

Chances of Appearing in A3: 5/10. The reason why I put that so high up is because of Freeze was Arkham City's most brilliant character. I highly doubt RockSteady will leave him out, after how successful his character was in Arkham City. Although things could happen and its likely we wont see him return.

Additional Information:
Freeze's suit not only keeps his body at optimum temperature, but also provides heavy protection and other gadgets such as a touch screen computer and heat-signature trackers. This makes him extremely powerful in combat. Although often seen a villain, The Dark Knight knows there is good in Freeze's heart - no matter how cold it may have become.

Possible Role in A3:
With Nora now safe with him, Mr Freeze will probably working out a cure for his wife. With the aid of Batman he may perhaps be able to accomplish this, which would be a great storyline for the game, as this has rarely been done before in the comics and other media.

Chances of Appearing in A3: 4/10, probably just a cameo.

Possible Role in Arkham 3
Since Batman did Freeze a favour in Arkham City by giving him the location of his frozen wife, Nora Fries, Victor may decide to repay Batman in Arkham 3. He would also be a good choice for a side mission villain as well.

Possible role in Arkham 3: Mr. Freeze could be an ally, enemy or possibly both to Batman. Still attempting to cure his beloved wife Nora, Mr. Freeze will do anything to cure her - will a villain use this to manipulate him into going against Batman ? Or Mr. Freeze could be pushed into a side role with batman helping Mr. Freeze to achieve his ultimate goal - curing Nora.

Essential Reading:
Batman: Snow; Batman: Mr. Freeze; Gotham Central #1; Batman Adventures: Dangerous Dames & Demons; Battle for the Cowl: Commissioner Gordon and Legends of the Dark Night: 201 to 203.

Additional Info:
Mr. Freeze could be called a villain, or even a hero at times. But when it comes down to it, he has never cared about his status in the world of Gotham. Without a gang or a grudge with anyone other than his old boss Boyle and Strange, he is content to reside in his own personal lab; also known as the GCPD building. But when someone comes in the way of him or Nora, whether it be Batman or the trivial chore of creating a cure for the Joker; don't expect him to let you pass by. But even while the man is forced to live in freezing temperatures, knowing without a cure, he will have no wife; Batman knows there is still some good left in that cold heart of his. It'll just take a little digging to find out just where it is.

Chances of Appearing:
With Arkham likely turning into a world of chaos, Freeze will be forced to trap himself inside his lab; if the current location is even still suitable. However, chances are he won't simply give up on his wife just because of a dysfunctional city, no, he just won't be someone involved in a main role. 5/10 is my bet.

Possible Role:
Freeze will be hiding somewhere, whether it still be the GCPD building or something farther away. Who knows? But when Batman comes across him, maybe he will need to find some ingredient from the cure. Possibly in Hush's hideout or maybe even in the place Mad Hatter called home in AC. Time is running out and he'll only have so much time before the temperature begins to rise, and he loses his dear Nora. Whether they want him to lose her and go on a rampage, or end up saving her in time and live happily ever after? Don't ask me. Either way, it's looking more and more like a side mission role for Victor.

A broken man with not much hope left, one has to wonder what will happen if that hope ever breaks?

Possible Role in A3: After his wife was stolen from him in the last game, Freeze won't be taking any chances with Nora. It's doubtful that any of the other major villians in the next game will be able to ally themselves with Victor nor will they be able to force him to do anything (like Joker did in AC). His motivation in the Arkhamverse will be only on curing (and protecting) his frozen wife and, unless that leads him to break the law, he likely won't have any major role in A3. Even if he does break the law, it sounds like Batman could have a lot more to worry about than break-ins by Freeze, so maybe Victor will get to be Robin's problem in a playable Robin mission.
