Season Six

When a mole within Wayne Enterprises alerts Bruce Wayne's business rival, Roland Daggett of Daggett Industries, of Dr. Fries' work, Daggett send a group of thugs to infiltrate Dr. Fries' personal lab, a Wayne Enterprises-owned workshop called Fries Cryogenics . However, Fries happens to be present in the lab himself when Daggett's thugs break in. Demanding that Fries give them all his research, Fries refuses, and the confrontation soon gets physical. When one of the goons threatens the comatomse Nora, Fries becomes angry and charges him. While these two are fighting, another goon grabs an experimental freeze bomb and throws it at Fries. Fries begins to ice over, and in the chaos, he knocks into a computer console, which causes a large vat of chemicals to go critical. Panicking, the goons flee, and the vat explodes, leaving the lab in ruins and supposedly killing Fries.

However, Fries survives, but his body becomes infused with cryogenic chemicals, rendering him only able to survive in subzero climates. Also driven insane by the chemicals, he decides to turn to a life of crime. Salvaging what he could from the ruins of his lab, Fries constructs a special cryogenic bodysuit with an internal subzero temperature and decides to call himself "Mr. Freeze".


  • This was the first time the Mr. Freeze character appeared in a live-action work since Arnold Schwarzenegger's disastrous portrayal of him in 1997's Batman & Robin.
