You may or may not know that Mister Freeze was a forgotten Batman villain there for a while. He was yet another of DC’s ice-themed bad guys (Captain Cold, The Icicle, Killer Frost) and after he showed up in the Batman television show, he pretty much was allowed to lay fallow for a few decades. (If you read the Animal Man books written by Grant Morrison, you’ll see Animal Man walk through a wasteland that contains forgotten characters such as The Inferior Five. Mister Freeze is one of the characters Animal Man talks to and Mister Freeze gives a short monologue about how he’d be a good bad guy to bring back.)
Anyway, in 1992, Batman: The Animated Series dug up Mister Freeze, gave him a new origin story, and HOLY COW. Grant Morrison was right.
Anyway, in this little DLC add-on, you play through as Batman right after Mister Freeze’s origin story begins (and about a week after the story of Arkham Origins ends). You have a handful of interactions with the reborn Victor Fries, investigate the crime scene that gave him his new abilities, and tackle a handful of familiar faces along the way.
If you’ve been waiting *FOREVER* for Batman: Arkham Knight, this little trifle of a DLC will tide you over for a handful of hours. I’m enjoying the heck out of it.
So… what are you playing?
