Good old Victor Fries. I love him when he's written well, but my standards for "written well" are narrow as all hell, even moreso than my standards for the Riddler and Two-Face. I can't think of a single, published comic (outside the DCAU continuity) that fits those standards, and the 1997 Batman: Mr. Freeze graphic novel - written by Paul "Heart of Ice" Dini, no less - isn't really an exception to that.

In the end, it comes down to the fact that I think Mr. Freeze is a character who should make limited appearances and be written with a maximum amount of effort in each appearance, while DC execs seem to think the exact opposite. Sooner or later, they'll find a way to twist any take on Victor to include an excuse to turn him into a recurring villain, even though the very state of being a recurring villain arguably undercuts what makes Victor the most effective: his buried humanity and the fact that, in the end, he might be the most noble man in Arkham Asylum.

But for what it was worth, the aforementioned graphic novel did include a welcome expansion on Victor's and Nora's romance, back before the Almighty raised his middle finger at both of them.

Couldn't think of any specific stories that fit a 10th anniversary, so I figured I'd just repost an old one; a story from Paul Jenkins, who's run on Spider-Man IMO was one of the best.

"The Unwritten Fables," a five-part The Unwritten story arc in which Tom Taylor meets the cast of Bill Willingham's Fables, begins...



'Let's just say that my wish list of "Fables" characters that I was really, really desperate to write was very large, and thanks to Bill's generosity, I was able to write all or most of them.'

- Mike Carey

Just last month, IDW launched a new volume of their Doctor Who ongoing. And this time, right out of the gate, they've established an intriguing long term mystery for the series.
