From the BTAS tie-in comic, set before Victor knew that Nora was still being kept in stasis in her cryotube and thought she'd died in the accident that made him... well Him.

Gotham has before unseasonably cold, even for Christmas, and Batman finds out that Mr Freeze broke out of prison and is leaving a path of destruction cutting through Gotham firing a gigantic cold ray into the air.

Batman tries to tackle him, but since DCAU Mr Freeze built strength enhancing reinforcements into his cryosuit (to enable him to move around easier with the tons of gear he needs to live presumably, with the added bonus of being able to smack crimefighters around) Victor manages to easily backhand Bruce across the graveyard they ended up in.

And because he needed a happy ending, here's Victor's brief reuniting with Nora (she remarried after he was presumed dead in Subzero, but when her new husband feared she may have feelings for Victor still, he hid the letters he sent her from Arkham and framed him for the murder of Ferris Boyle. After finding out that Victor still loved her and that new husband was a murderous asshole, Nora left him and, after tracking him down with the help of the now teenaged Inuit kid from the Subzero film, managed to reunite with Victor before the precursor to Derek Power's RnD company seeming killed Fries in a chopper attack, but instead spirited his living severed head away to conduct research on for the next few decades...)...


Yeah, Victor's (brief) happy sorta ending!

From Batman Adventures 15, though I'm not certain whether the storyline the panel's from was actually published or not... The bit with the murder and Nora going to look for Victor was definitely published in issue 15 though.

Nora Fries (her husband unseen) should have been in DARK KNIGHT RISES as a freezing technology expert working for Lucius Fox. Her technology is why the ice doesn't crack when Batman steps on it to rescue Gordon.

I also wanted Francine Langstrom (her husband unseen) as a sonar expert working for Lucius Fox.

Basically, DKR was a sausage fest.

After Nora reunites with Freeze, Batman and Batgirl arrive. They fight, Freeze's suit explodes, and Freeze falls into the ocean.

In the end, it's implied that Nora spent the rest of her life trying to find Freeze.

As for why they didn't do an animated version of the Mr. Freeze Christmas story, in this week's Fatman on Batman podcast, Kevin Smith had Paul Dini on and Dini explained that people thought that the story was way too depressing to put in a Christmas episode.

Sigh, I was literally just putting together a posting from this very story! Scanned, uploaded and everything... ah well, I shouldn't complain, as it IS a lovely story, and definitely a candidate for the "Stories that make you go "Awwww!"" theme!

Of all the Batman villains, Mr. Freeze was the one I felt the worst for. Mad Hatter? Nope. Riddler? Puh-lease. Joker? Joker is happier than he ever was as a "normal" guy. Clayface? Some. Sad that he's crazy. But Mr. Freeze and Nora were really mucked over by fate, and his grim determination to get their lives back is epic when handled correctly... which, in the DCAU, it was.

And Micheal Ansara was the perfect vocie for Victor.

You are so right.

Funny you should mention that...

I've always thought that the DCAU kind of tripped and stumbled with Riddler's origin. It seemed like they were going for at least some sympathy for Eddie, but it was badly rushed and didn't really accomplish much. The ending of that episode, while probably perfectly logical from a character standpoint, was the single most unsatisfying ending I've ever gotten out of the DCAU.

[nods] Honestly, my favorite versions of the Riddler are three extremes: I love the one-shot in Secret Origins written by Neil Gaiman; I loved watching Green Arrow beat the crap out of the full-of-himself version during that supernatural crisis that Judd Winick wrote about ten years ago; and, of course, Frank Gorshin. Sigh.
