Oh, wow. He looks so ill. Like a cancer patient. You can kind of imagine that he just completely neglects himself physically but for the necessities. He was always way more focused on the this-is-to-cure/avenge-my-wife side of villainy, I can totally believe it. And that suit, looks like he cobbled it together from some kind of bargain-bin NASA-surplus store. Reminds me very much of the idea of futuristic space/ocean-exploration and mechanics/robotics of a bygone era.
It's always been my belief that the greatest aspect of any Batman story is the villains he faces. Now most supervillains are enjoyable to watch or listen to but what really sets thos of the Batman stories apart from the enemies faced by say Superman or Spiderman is the fact that they are so sympathetic.
Most of the time, they're not people bent on world domination or something cliche like that. Most of the time they're just ordinary people whose lives have been destroyed by the inherent dark elements of Gotham City. In many ways that makes them a mirror for Batman himself. Wronged in the past and often seeking retribution for it. But whilst Batman was able to avoid the dark pit that such a path leads to, they did not and you really feel the tragedy of that.
Every time I see them I think to myself:
"There but for the grace of God goes Batman himself".
And this one, Mr Freeze, has always been the absolute epitome of that concept. So much so that I have never once thought of him as a villain. See the story through his eyes and he's actually a hero like Batman, figthing for what he considers to be justice against those who wronged him and the wife he loved so much.
The absolute greatest Batman villain ever made. Such a shame that only the 90's animated series has ever done him any justice. Everyone else turned him into a joke.
Sorry for my rambling but I just had to get that off my chest.
