Last Issue

After waking his wife up for the first time. To Nora’s dismay, Victor begins the process of stabilizing her in the same process he used for himself. Meanwhile, Bruce and Alfred are pressed trying to figure out how to resuscitate the women he had just rescued. Recognizing what kind of challenge they face. Bruce implores the use of WayneTech to crack this one. With that assistance comes the WayneTech science man we all love, Lucious Fox.

This Issue

While Nora and Victor are gallivanting about Gotham. Bruce, Alfred, and Lucious are hard at work seeking a cure for the three women Victor used to help further his research. After a while of grinding away at it, Luscious finds a possible solution. Problem is, it needs to be tested on living things first. Yet they don’t have enough time to run their serum through animal trials. Bruce opts to be the guinea pig, despite the potentially lethal risk.

Thoughts

This issue is a really nice twist on an old format. Working your hands to the bone for a goal that turns to be not what you wanted. Getting the keys to the kingdom and finding out it not your kingdom. Freeze being blindsided by Nora’s agency is a new twist that hasn’t really been explored. Nora is her own person and with her newly voiced character development that we’ve only known as Freeze’s literal objectification of love and its pursuit. I’m excited to see her blossom into her own and perhaps be a proper replacement for Victor moving forward.

Born in Florida, dragged to California because of Internet dating. Comics have always helped me have a healthy escape when I was younger. As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
Summary
It is rare to see such a natural progression with a comic villain in this regard. This is very well written on top of being Freeze's one goal for his entire existence. Nora being back and regaining her own agency. Things in the Freeze family are about to change.
Good
  • GROWTH!
  • Nora is wonderful immediately.
  • Bruce's tenacity to the cause.
  • New element to the Freeze dynamic.
